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.

woman in the pro shop needs better customer service skills

This is a great place to play golf the only complaint I have is the woman in the pro shop needs better customer service skills she acts like she owns the course or she is the drill Sargent and the customers are her troops. I asked about going off of the front 9 first but she wanted me to go off the back 9 when they had a large league that just went off kind in mind I am playing by myself she replied that's just how we do things here and that only one group was out on the front 9 but they paid extra for that privilege. This place needs to work on the pace of play and someone like a marshall or a starter on the golf course physically.

Wont be back due to poorly communicated cart GPS limitations

Carts have super-irritating lock-out functions that take over anytime they want and course did an EXTREMELY POOR job of communicating where the lockouts could occur -- ESPECIALLY over 50 feet from the green in the 18th fairway. or in the area of the underpass between holes 13 & 14 where the unposted speed limit is 9, but the GPS cant decide if you are going 7 or 11.

Greens are Tough

Great course with excellent personnel and the best safety guide lines for COVID that I have seen yet. Pin placement was impossible today with hard greens and slopes. Fairways are excellent and grass around greens still coming in. Nice layout on course with a mix of short holes and longer holes but don't be fooled by the distance because if you do not stay in front of pins 4 putts are standard. All in all great course for the money paid

The greens are HORRIBLE!

I've played this course many times since I started golfing. These were not some of, but THE WORST greens I've played on this year by far. They need to be addressed NOW! I will most likely not play here again unless they do something soon, this season.

Fair Test

Bridges of Poplar Creek plays longer than it is; with undulating greens that put great demand on precise approach shot location. Stay below the hole to score. Play was unfortunately slow, maybe in part due to the windy conditions. All in all a fair test and good value.
