Formerly known as Poplar Creek Country Club, the club was transformed into the Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club in 2011. Besides just the name change, the design itself was dramatically reinvented. Fifteen holes were completely redesigned but the golf course's most memorable holes were left untouched. Bunkers and fairways were reconfigured and fescue was planted to provide more depth and definition. To make the course even more challenging, new lakes were also added. The golf course is definitely a shot maker's layout that rewards accuracy and thoughtful strategizing. The final three holes are considered by many locals to be the toughest finishing trio in all of Illinois. It begins with an uphill par 4, followed by the longest par-3 and par-4 holes respectively. The Bridges of Poplar Creek C.C. offers a round that will challenge even the most avid golfers.

Golf Pass snafu

I purchased these rounds thru Golf Now at $42 each. Turns out the course was having a shotgun start at this time. The course was selling this time for $35 with the stipulation that it was a shotgun start.!!

A Scenic Gem Found in Hoffman Estates

Everything about my experience was excellent! They have a fantastic learning center, a restaurant, a banquet facility, locker rooms and a stocked pro shop. Everyone was friendly. The course was in great shape! I don't know if this is because of covid, but I remember there used to be water jugs located throughout the course and there wasn't. Luckily I brought water with me.
