Rory Spears at Medinah on Sunday of the 2019 BMW Championship.


THIS MORNING AT MEDINAH COUNTRY CLUB, the membership voted on whether to approve a proposed renovation to it’s famed championship Course #3.

The famed and historic Medinah Country Club clubhouse.

THE VOTE needed a 2/3 majority to pass. It did easily. The vote received an over 80% approval rate. That much we know.

OCM an Australian architecture firm, will oversee the renovation.

The three lead designers of the OCM team are, former 2006 U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy, Mike Cocking and Ashley Mead.

But with the companies base being in Australia, it begs the question. Will this classic parkland course, end up looking like a dunes course in the UK. Which is a fair question and one that the membership had.

The par 3, 17th hole on Medinah #3.


The clubs membership had video’s and plans to study for quite a while. So they could learn everything they needed to know. Based on the vote, they had all they needed.

But the plan has the heavy-lifting being done on the back-nine.

THE FAMED PAR 3 holes 13-17 will get changed. Not blown-up as rumored. The knock has been is that both holes play alike. But no longer. The 13th green moves right of it’s current location, tee box angles will be changed. But it will play shorter, around 160 from the tips. The 17th green moves left, closer to Medinah Road. Back tees sitting near 225 yards, the tee boxes will get moved to provide different challenges.

HOLE 18 WILL NOT BE A PAR 4-it becomes a par 5. So which back-nine par 5 becomes a par 4, hole 10 or 14. But making the 10th hole a par 4, makes more sense.

HOLES 15 and 16 will see some changes. I have always thought 16 could see some change. The second shot played longer than the tee shot, and to an uphill green. Hole 15 had a pond added for the 2012 Ryder Cup so players could gamble on getting home with their drive on this short par-4. But most players never attempted it. Word is most of the membership didn’t like the change.

MOST OF the major changes seem to be in the area of holes 13-18. But even back before the 2019 BMW Championship, there was some talk about moving the second tee to the right of it’s current location. Back to an area where a previous tee box area had sat years ago. The area has been over grown. But the thought was to make Hole 2 be able to play over a fairway all the way to the green. With water coming into play, only on the left side of the fairway.

TREE REMOVAL is apparently a serious part of the plan, with replanting of trees in other areas. Construction could begin next fall and the course will could be closed all of 2023.

BUT IT DOES APPEAR that much of the work done prior to the 2012 Ryder Cup, and the 2006 PGA Championship by Rees Jones will disappear. But time will tell.

Golfers on Golf will add more to this story as details become available. So stay clicked in.

FOX RUN’S NEW CLUBHOUSE IS OPEN, with three Full Swing Simulators, a new bar and more.


The new clubhouse at the Fox Run Golf Links in Elk Grove is open. But for that matter, so is the golf course.

So keep hoping for a quick blast of warm weather to play some outdoor golf at Fox Run.

The course is located at 333 Plum Grove Road, and is part of the Elk Grove Park District.

But the new clubhouse is more than just a building. Because for one the maintenance vehicles have a new home. But so do the golfers and staff. Director of Golf Operations Tom Klaas is glad to finally have the clubhouse open. But says there is a small punch-list of minor things still to wrap-up.

The new clubhouse has a large bar, and three simulators. With plenty of room for dining.

Outdoor golf season is not finished.

Because if the weather permits, and there is no snow, the golf course will be open for golf. So how is that with Christmas only a week a way.

The new check in stations are up and running.

But all winter long, you can go enjoy food and beverage in the new clubhouse. But don’t forget your clubs, as golf season is now year round at Fox Run.

The new check-in stations are up and running. But the concept of an old fashion pro shop has changed.

Because it’s been streamlined to get you out the door, even faster than before.

There are two-check-in stations for getting processed to play. But no worries, there are still some golf supplies on-hand if you need them. Right behind the check-in stations, Fox Run still carries golf balls, golf gloves, and a limited supply of golf hats.

Golfers enjoy a beverage on opening day at the new Fox Run bar.

For those who have been to Fox Run and enjoy the clubs slot machines, they are in the new clubhouse.

Current kitchen hours are, closed on Monday, if you were planning to stop for the this Mondays Bears game.

3-8 Pm Tues.-Thurs. Fri. and Sat. 11-8 and Sunday 11-7 PM. Call the club with questions or to book simulator tee times, at (847)-228-3544. You can learn more at Where the golf season never ends.


IN THE DOME or in THE SIMULATOR golf season never ends in the Chicago area. The Mistwood Golf Dome is open daily until 10 PM-located on Rt. 53. So book your hitting bay at or call the dome at (630)-739-7600. Schaumburg Golf Club 401 N. Roselle Road has its simulators open. So call the shop at (847)-885-9000 to book your simulator time.

THE 2021 BMW CHAMPIONSHIP raised a record windfall for the Evans Scholars and the Western Golf Association (WGA).

Because this past August at Caves Valley Golf Club, the 2021 BMW Championship put $5.6 million dollars into the scholarship fund for the Evans Scholars Foundation.

Making the overall total amount raised over $40 million dollars, since BMW came on-board as title sponsor.

Because of support from BMW, the Caves Valley Golf Club Foundation, the local corporate community, and the over 100,000 spectators that turned out in person for the championship. The 2021 BMW Championship broke the previous fundraising record $1.2 million, set in 2019 at Medinah Country Club.

WGA Sr. VP of Tournaments Vince Pellegrino speaks at media day for the 2021 BMW Championship at Caves Valley.

“We’re proud to announce the contribution of all proceeds from the BMW Championship to the Evans Scholars Foundation. Because they will be used to send hardworking youth caddies to college,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA senior vice president of tournaments. “Because of the generosity of our partners at BMW, Caves Valley and the PGA TOUR and the incredible enthusiasm of the Baltimore-area fans, this was truly a special year for our championship.”

The J.K. Wadley trophy (L) and the BMW Championship trophy (R).

Patrick Cantlay won the first TOUR event hosted in the Baltimore area in almost 60 years. But Cantlay’s dramatic win took a six-hole playoff with Bryson DeChambeau.

Currently, the number of caddies enrolled at various colleges and universities sits at 1,070.

BMW has recently signed on to host the 2023-2027 championships. With the 2023 BMW Championship to be played at the Olympia Fields Country Club in the south suburbs of Chicago. But for more details on the 2022 championship at Wilmington Country Club in Delaware, see

Bridges of Popular Creek Director of Golf Brian Bechtold, welcomes golfers to the new practice facility at the club.

THE BRIDGES OF POPLAR CREEK in Hoffman Estates has opened it’s new practice facility.

This state of the art facility will have golfers who want to hit outside, coming to the course on most days of the year.

Currently the new $750,000 facility is going through a soft opening. But the formal opening will be in March of 2022, says Director of Golf, Brian Bechtold.

The new 10 bay practice facility with Toptracer at the Bridges of Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates.

Bechtold says the club took out some current hitting places, and replaced it with this facility.

But the new facility is more than just golf. Because behind the hitting bays, and the building are areas to relax and enjoy some food and beverages.

One of the winter projects, is getting the facility ready for golf lessons or clubs fittings.

The outdoor dining area and firepits add yet another dimension to the new facility.

Because of a second row of heaters hanging from the ceiling, one over the hitting bays and one over the dining area. So golfers will be kept warm on colder days.

With Toptracer in all ten of the hitting bays, golfers can check their stats, or play rounds of golf on great courses from around the world. So if your ready for a match with your friends, you can do that as well.

The sitting area behind the 10 hitting bays.

Bechtold calls the practice facility part of the Bridges of Poplar Creek, long term master plan.

The club has worked with the golf architecture firm of Bob Lohman and Todd Quitno in the past, and will continue to do so moving forward.

More course improvements will be done to the golf course. But those plans aren’t ready to be announced.

CLICK HERE to hear the full interview with Bridges of Poplar Creek Director of Golf Brian Bechtold on the new practice facility at the club.

AS THE WEEK BEGINS there is good news coming from the Quad Cities.

The John Deere Classic has announced this morning, another outstanding year of raising money.

Because the JDC’s Birdies for Charity arm of the classic, has raised over $12 million dollars in revenue in 2021.

The amount shows an increase of over $350,000 from 2020, when there was no championship. But this year there was a classic/with restrictions.

The John Deere Classic will be handing out checks to over 470 charities in the Quad Cities area. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from John Deere. One lucky couple was just one birdie off, from the total amount of birdies made this year, Classic week. They were awarded a free two-year lease on a new Lexus. 2021 was the third highest amount ever raised by the JDC. The Quad Cities, small towns. But a big heart = real help. Well done JDC.

COVID-There is a new strain out. It is starting to affect both the NBA and the NHL. So will it start to affect golf tournaments going forward. Let’s hope not. But most golfers on the major tours seemed to be vaccinated. But spectators may not be. So might there need to vaccination checks to get into tournaments, I hope not. We will see.

THE OMAR URESTI RULE is going into effect via the PGA of America. Club professionals seem to be celebrating after watching Uresti clean-up at various championships. But as you might guess, Uresti is not happy. Because he did nothing illegal. He did follow the rules. But club pro’s don’t like former PGA Tour players, who had a long run on PGA Tour, falling back into their ranks to compete. Stay tuned to see what happens next here.

The Mistwood Golf Dome on Rt. 53 in Bolingbrook is also home to McWethy’s Sports Bar. (630)-739-7600 book your hitting bay online.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO when you sell your business and the family asks-what’s next ?

For Nick Larkin who has almost 20 years in the restaurant business, it meant taking that experience and mixing it with his love of golf.

But with the golf movement becoming more of a year round business up in northern states, Larkin launched “The Shack”.

So what is “The Shack” ? It’s a combination of four golf simulators, and a bar-restaurant area with some really good food. But for Chicago area golfers that know the area, The Shack is located in Glenview halfway between the Glen Club and North Shore Country Club.

NICK LARKIN is the owner of The Shack in Glenview.

But while “The Shack” is new, opening only back in late September on Ryder Cup weekend, it’s caught the eye of area golfers.

Larkin says his business is getting busier all the time, as area courses are closing for the winter and outdoor play.

While many of the area courses have only 1 or 2 simulators, Larkin’s Shack has four simulators.

One of the four simulators at The Shack.

Golfers can book the simulator time on line, or call The Shack, and Larkin or one of his staff members will pencil in you or your group into your time slot.

If you wish to eat before, during or after golf, no problem. But even better news is that The Golf Channel can always be found on one of the Shacks televisions.

The menu and food are good. But Larkin says much of it could be found at some clubs halfway houses. But the ‘Shack’ is becoming a place where golfers are hanging out, and enjoying time with other golfers. Larkin says he enjoys meeting his customers and getting to know them, like members getting to know their local pro.

The Shack’s bar and dining area.

The golfers who come to golf, have plenty of golf options on the simulators.

Because there are over 100 courses to pick from around the world. But their are other games and options to choose from.

If you just want to check how straight your drives are, you can. But another option is to see how far your are hitting it. So if you don’t like those distance numbers, both lessons and club fittings are options at the Shack.

CLICK HERE TO HEAR the interview with Nick Larkin owner of “The Shack”.

The Shack is located at 1717 Chestnut in Glenview. Website or call (847)-904-2905. Hours are 10 AM daily to 11 PM Sunday-Thursday. Friday and Saturday open until Midnight.
