Bowes Creek is one of the newer courses on the west side of Chicago, it's about an hour from the Loop out in Elgin in Kane County. It's a Rick Jacobson design routed through an upscale residential development, and while built over former farmland, has a some elevation change. It's a private club, but has "member for a day" rates, which are a little steep, but it's a good quality layout, and well maintained. Good mix of open links-style holes along with the traditional parkland holes with tree lined fairways. The front side's a little pedestrian, but warms you up for a much more interesting and fun backside. The routing is through homesites, natural wetland areas, and woods, with good sized landing zones off the tee, the challenge on approach to the greens. Great practice facility with target greens, and a short game putting and chipping area, and decent restaurant in the clubhouse. From the tips it's a 142 slope and a 73.2 course rating, the white tees are 6,120 yards, 69.3 course rating, slope of 133
