Bowes Creek is one of the newer courses on the west side of Chicago 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.
There's a 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 thoughtful backside. The routing is through homesites, natural wetland areas, and woods with good sized landing zones off the tee. 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.
