About Cog Hill Golf and Country Club
Cog Hill Golf and Country Club is a 1,000-acre, 72-hole public golf facility located Lemont, Illinois; 30 miles southwest of Chicago. Cog Hill is the dream and work of Joe Jemsek, a golf visionary who pioneered high standards for public golf.
While Cog Hill was founded in 1927, Mr. Jemsek acquired Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in 1951 from the Coghill family. The property at the time consisted of two eighteen-hole golf courses. Mr. Jemsek added a third course in 1963, and then added the beloved Number Four, or “Dubsdread” Course in 1964. Dubsdread was recently renovated and updated in 2008 by architect Rees Jones. Still today, Cog Hill is owned and operated by the Jemsek family.
Cog Hill was built on high expectations and tradition which has created a world-renowned Championship golf facility. Cog Hill has hosted professional and amateur tournaments dating back to 1970. Such tournaments include; the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links (1987), the U.S. Amateur Public Links (1970,1989), the 97th U.S. Amateur (1997) the PGA Tour Western Open Championship (1991-2006), and the PGA Tour BMW Championship (2007, 2009-2011).
