Cog Hill # 4 - or Dudsdread is located just SW of Chicago along highway 171 in Lemont. There are 4-18 hole courses here, #2 & #4 are the best tracts for championship level golf.

Dubsdread was once the championship course for the PGA's Western Open for a number of years. It was originally designed by Dick Wilson and Joe Lee as a traditional parkland style course, but redesigned by the "Open Doctor" Rees Jones in 2008. There's six sets of tees overall from 5,441 yards to 7,554 yards, the white tees play to 6,382 yards, 71.9/134, course/slope ratings. It's a shot-maker's layout with tight landing areas, heavily bunkered both along the fairways and greenside with the greens large and undulating.

The #2 Ravines was originally designed by David McIntosh & Bert Coghill in 1929 with later redesign work by Joe Lee & Rocky Roquemore. It's name is appropriate as over half the holes cross ravines along tree lined fairways over rolling hills with numerous water hazards, sand bunkers, and smallish, fast and undulating greens. There's four sets of tees overall, the tips play to 6,837 yards, 72.7/126, course/slope.

The other courses, #1, a David McIntosh original design from 1927, with a 1963 Dick Wilson redesign, and #3, a Dick Wilson design are both routed over similar land, parkland style in design, and more of a value than #'s 2 or 4.

Got out one last time before winter sets in on a wonderful Indian Summer day. Great golf course, more visually intimidating than it is difficult. Just have to trust your yardages and when you miss an approach and are on the wrong sector of the green; you must have tremendous lag putting. Tons of fun to play!

This historic stop on the PGA tour is famous for its bunkering, with well over 100 traps on the course. What the course lacks in visual excitement or obvious water hazards, it makes up for in classic design elements. Tight fairways, small, undulating greens and lots of trees make for a golf round where the player must have his best stuff to score well. More of this review at GolfTop18!

For the everyday golfer this is just not a fun course. I think there's about 150 bunkers on No. 4 (Dubsdread). Almost every green is surrounded and flanked by bunkers on every side. This is the same as the fairway bunkers. I'll be shocked if a person isn't hitting a sand shot at least every other hole. The reality is there isn't a good balance here and it really detracts from the course itself. And at the price, a lot of us play Ruffled Feathers across the street instead. In the Chicago land area, Dubs isn't any better than some of the $80-$100 muni courses. It just feels and plays like an overpriced sand box. I was not wowed by the course, it was not that attractive and I will not be returning soon. Unless I have some friends visiting who have the itch.

Dubsdread gets all the attention, but I prefer the Ravines, very different than your typical Chicagoland golf course, there is actual elevation changes. Playing 6639 yards and 71.8/124 from the blues, Ravines is much harder than the posted slope and rating, always in great shape, and a good solid test.

Man-sized golf course, very challenging. Fairways and rough are in great shape. Greens are excellent for so late in the year. Though the sand in traps is still a little heavy. Snack bar is excellent but a little expensive. Cost is a little high but not too bad with the tee time book. Definitely rates a replay however.
