Opened in 1930 and designed by C.H. Muelenford and Sam Sneed, Big Run Golf Course is nearly 100 years old. We’ve played it a lot and not very well. Grab your long sticks becuase this course will test your distance making ability. Great views and elevated tee boxes will surprise you – especially, in the SW burbs of Chiccago. Hundreds of tall oak trees throughout the course (some oaks are centuries old), complemented by five lakes and Long Run Creek, will test your shot making abilities. 8 of 18 holes bring water into play. The course is heavily bunkered.
Big Run Golf Club can be difficult but enjoyable, challenging and sporty. The course has never stood on it’s laurels, it has been reshaped over the years to complement both the improvements in today’s golfers and to take advantage of this scenic piece of land golfers have come to enjoy. Bottom line, we like playing here. Probably, because we fashion ourselves as long hitters… In reality, we’re not.
