Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, Illinois features four 18-hole golf courses that are open to the public.

Illinois Golf Hall of Famer Joe Jemsek earned the nickname the “father of public golf” in large part due to the creation of Cog Hill’s fourth golf course – known as Dubsdread. Before Dubsdread’s debut in 1964, public golf courses were often considered less challenging, not as well-maintained and less aesthetically pleasing than their private course counterparts.

Joe Jemsek purchased the 36-hole Cog Hill complex in the early 1950s. In 1963, he added Cog Hill’s third layout and then in 1964, built Cog Hill’s fourth – known as Dubsdread.

Dubsdread is the #4 course at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, IL. It’s also the former host of the BMW Championship and the Western Open on the PGA Tour.

Jemsek had believed Chicago’s public golfers were ready to support an upscale daily-fee course that as was as challenging, well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing as any public layout. His intuition proved correct as Dubsdread was quickly recognized as one of the top 18-hole courses in the country – public or private.

I played course #2 8/13/21 and loved it. Has to be the most picturesque course on the south side.
