Roll Call “Chicago” (Part 2)

A bridge too far it seems

This warms my heart. Might also be the reason certain playing partners prefer to walk.

Can’t really blame them for deciding they’d had enough and trying to end it all halfway through that back nine.

Did you walk out to take that picture?

I just happened to overhear the issue from the starter while enjoying the black and blue flatbread at their patio restaurant (decent). Our server provided me the pic above.

Number of years ago my brother used to live at the AMLI apartments right on Seven Bridges. He was on the far south west corner of the last building so he had a view of the 11th and 12th holes. Some guys pulled up to the 11th green and drove the cart slightly up the hill between there and the 12th tee box. They forgot to put the parking brake on and hopped out, cart rolled backwards right into the water.

Yup. I’ve witnessed all sorts of stuff that would heavily promote shrinking the game. They do a ton of outings so doesn’t surprise me.

There’s more than a few clubs in the creek off 11 tee.

For a course that wants to be a more high end course, it’s definitely become the high end golf bro course. So many idiots out there.

7(?) bridges is high end in price only. Some of their tee time prices are batshit crazy for that course.

I’m going back to their days of hosting the Michael Jordan celebrity shootout… when they were in their heyday they wanted to be one of the premier courses (and housing communities) around. The price you see today is because of that mindset. In reality, the front nine is good and the back is just God awful.

there’s a subset of golfers out there that think it’s good because of the water.

Settler’s Hill opens TODAY. I’m pumped.

Anyone down for some Sunday afternoon golf?

It’s a “roller coaster ride” according to Greg Martin (architect)

I used always have The Score on back before Terry Boers retired. They had many golf outings at 7 Bridges. Dan McNeil used to rave about it, so it had to be bad.

Would sign up for that

Ugh I so wish I could. Been wondering when they’d finish working on that dump and how it’d be. Damn second kid is killing my game… in other news - did someone say it’s International Beer Day?!?

Super pumped to see what they did there! I believe it was the same dude who redid the preserve.

Yup. Greg Martin. He did The Preserve and Phillips Park.

I got a 6:20pm tee time at Sydney for 2. It might be a little wet but does anyone wanna risk it?
