LIV Golf Coming to Bolingbrook

LIV Golf will be returning to the Chicagoland area for its 2024 Individual Championship, LIV Golf Chicago, which is scheduled for September 13-15 at Bolingbrook Golf Club. This event, marking the 13th tournament of the 2024 season, will play a crucial role in determining the final individual rankings and crowning the 2024 LIV Golf League Individual Champion. It will also influence the team seedings for the Team Championship.

Bryson DeChambeau won the LIV Golf Chicago individual championship in 2023 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove. His Crushers’ also took home the team title. Cameron Smith posted a final round 3-under 69 to win the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational-Chicago, which also was held at Rich Harvest Farms.

Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman expressed enthusiasm about returning to Illinois, stating, “The passionate sports fans of Chicago have embraced the intense competition and fan-first experience that LIV Golf delivers, and this year it will be an incredible setting for a high-stakes event as players battle it out for the individual title and a roster spot for 2025,” said Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman. “We’re thrilled to return to Illinois with an event at Bolingbrook Golf Club as we celebrate the season-long race and set the stage for the 2024 finale.”

Mayor Mary Basta of Bolingbrook also welcomed the internationally renowned players to Bolingbrook Golf Club, highlighting the venue’s distinctive features. Designed by prominent golf course architects Arthur Hills and Steve Forrest, the club is renowned for its challenging 156-yard island green on the signature 15th hole. The 7,104-yard course, adorned with rolling fairways and multiple lakes, was chosen for the PGA Tour’s Forme Tour in 2021.

Bolingbrook Golf Club has held the top spot of Chicago’s Top 10 Public Golf Course Clubhouses for the past few years. The first floor contains a 2,180 square foot pro shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, the casual dining golfer’s grill, and an exercise facility. The second level houses the grand ballroom which can seat up to 900 guests, the pre-function area which has three wet bars, audio-visual meeting room, and a covered veranda overlooking the #1 and #10 tees. The upper level contains a fine-dining public restaurant, two gourmet private dining rooms, and two bridal suites.
