Egyptian Country Club -- Learn to play on slopes
Review by: Randy Scott I played Egyptian Country Club throughout the 1980s, and though short, there are plenty of places to hit the ball out of bounds into trees. The best part of ECC, however, is: It teaches you to hit off slopes of all kinds -- downhill, uphill, sidehill.

Cog Hill Golf Club - Dubsdread Course -- Classic Design, Difficult Test
Review by: Dogtrack Master I began playing this course in the mid-80s when it was a $35 bargain. It now gets over $100 a round, but it is worth the price to play one of the greatest courses in the Chicago area. The pros who play the Western Open here find it to be a fair test. The most difficult holes are #4, short par 4 with water and difficult green to hit. Hole #6 is a long par 3 with a tricky green and lots of bunkers. Hole #9 finishes the front nine. It is a three shot par 5, with lots of trees. On the back nine, #13 is a long par 4 with a ravine in front of the green. The green itself is long and narrow. Hole #16 is a picturesque hole with water down the left side and a tricky green. The course finishes with a long, difficult par 4. Beware of the pond on the left side. This is a course that forces you to put the ball in the air. The greens are well-bunkered and nearly impossible to run-up a shot on. This is a great course that you shouldn't pass up.
