Courses 1/3

Testing, but not overpowering, best describes these golf courses. The layout routes through gently rolling, wooden terrain and offers a nice blend of lengths and difficulty, requiring a range of shot-making ability. The course features enough sand, woods, and water to test the accomplished player without punishing the beginner.

Course 2 (Ravines)

The sporty, championship layout is routed through wooded, rolling terrain and challenges golfers with ravines on nearly half of the holes. Unique to the RAVINES course is the closing “19th hole.” The challenging par-3 offers a testy putting surface and a memorable end the day’s golf match.

Course 4 (Dubsdread)

True to its name, this natural-style championship course places a high demand on shot-making ability by providing tight landing areas combined with heavily bunkered, large undulating greens. Over the years, DUBSDREAD has challenged professionals and amateurs alike while hosting numerous PGA Tour and USGA tournaments. Includes most contests.

Let’s fill DubsDread and get rid of early tee times! If we completely sell out the course this year, Cog Hill will grant a 10am shotgun!

Dinner Only

Dinner will be around 3-4 PM under the tent.
