THE GOG BLOG by RORY SPEARS, Director of Content and Creation. Follow Rory on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter @GogBlogGuy. The holiday spirit at Cog Hill.

One of the great golf holiday sopping days, is found at the Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, the flag ship property for Jemsek Golf.

The first Saturday each year in December is the Cog Hill holiday “Open House” that comes complete with sales on golf products, a nice food and punch spread, and gift wrapping on what your taking home.

One of the other great things about the holiday sale, is that owner Frank Jemsek is there and is not afraid to talk with the shoppers and Cog Hill customers.

Compliments, complaints, idea’s or suggestions Jemsek lends an ear to all customers. For golfers, there is nothing better than to have face time with those at the top of the command chain, at golf courses you love to play.

Cog Hill Owner Frank Jemsek.

Golfers on Golf attended last weekends holiday sale, and caught up with Jemsek who was “holding court” with customers in the grill of the Cog Hill 2&4 building. We covered topics such as the 2018 golf season in review, could Cog Hill join the clubs that are bringing in simulators for the winter to be more of a year-round facility. What about a Golf Dome at Cog Hill. For those of you wondering about a big time golf tournament returning to Cog Hill, Jemsek says they are still trying to make that happen. What’s on the new happenings list at Cog Hill.

The state of the Jemsek family golf properties meeting, that includes St. Andrews in West Chicago and Pine Meadow in Mundelein, had not happened yet, so Jemsek could not comment on what might be new in 2019 for those clubs.

Jemsek wanted all golfers to know that Courses 1&3 are open all year round, and that the Cog Hill Driving Range is open every day, except Christmas Day, golfers can hit balls under roof, that have heaters blowing down heat on you when you hit. Sign up begins on December 15th for the 2019 Eskimo Open that will be played Jan. 6th, with tee times starting at 7 AM. See for more details.
