About Seven Bridges
Seven Bridges Golf Club is an 18-Hole Championship Course with a 4-Star Rating by Golf Digest. Dick Nugent, the legendary golf course architect, designed the course and opened for play in 1991.
Additionally, Seven Bridges has been named by Chicagoland Golf as a top five public courses in the metropolitan area. We also have been voted as one of “America’s Best Golf Courses”, “Golf Digest top 20 in Illinois”, and are former hosts of Michael Jordan’s Charity Classic.
Par is 72 featuring four Par 5s, ten Par 4s, and four Par 3s. In total, our 5 sets of tees accommodate the novice golfer while still boasting one of the most challenging tests of golf in the Chicagoland area for the more accomplished player. The course at Seven Bridges Golf Club is defined by its contrasting nines; collectively known as Helios.
Collectively the front nine includes the holes Serenity, Tranquility and Beachcomber, that may lull you into a false sense of security. Finally conclude the front nine with the majestic views atop the 9th hole, Strike the Colors.
In contrast, the back nine is defined by water. Holes 10 through 12 are known (not always affectionately) as the Bermuda Triangle. Once you’ve made your way through the remainder of the back nine you’ll be greeted by Maelstrom, the 16th hole. Markedly many consider it to be one of the toughest par 4s in Chicagoland golf. Finally conclude your round with Reward and Satisfaction, our 17th and 18th hole. Afterward settle in for a well-deserved visit to the best 19th hole we know of, The Dock Bar & Grill.
