White Bowes Creek is located in a well-wooded area, the Rick Jacboson-designed course itself features a prairie-style layout with one lake, a creek, and several wetland areas. Five sets of tees stretch the course from 5,029 to 6,917 yards.

Fun, Fun, Fun, course, my personal favorite in Illinois behind Cog 4. Little biased since I score very well here. Can't say enough how great this track is. If I lived closer I'd buy a membership here. I live 1 hour away and have no problem driving here to play.

One of the best courses in Northwest burbs

Did not like the greens, thought they could use watering. Despite being overly firm the greens were true in the middle. The outer edges, still in bad shape on some holes. They are working to correct this. There is some nice scenery and Rick Jacobson did a nice job with the design. Set among a housing community most holes do not have houses along them.
Only into the back 9 do you start to get among the housing area. The homes are not overly tight OB. Most of the houses are not built at this point. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Bev. cart service OK. Lacks water stations, only 1 per 9 nole hole side, not enough. Nice clubhouse. 18 hole greens fee allows for FREE replays. A nice plus.
I wouldn't play this for $95 on the weekends, but at $59 after 1 PM with free replay, it might be a consideration.

Played on the day of the members stroke play tourney. Pins were tucked on every holed, made for a fun, challenging round. Great course conditions.

Thought the front 9 was among the best I've played. Felt like I was in a wildlife preserve. Back 9 was a bit short. Greens were very fast. Enjoyed the country club feel, free balls at range, etc.

Hidden Gem in Elgin...very nice and challenging golf course. The best value is to get the "daily membership" and play all day for one price. Touch screen GPS on cart is sweet. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
