The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center.

General manager Jerry Vidovic calls the shooting "a mystery" and "a terrible incident." He says there's never been a shooting at the course.

Vidovic says the man who was shot was a regular player at the club who'd just finished practicing when he was shot by someone in a blue vehicle, which drove away.

Blue Island police told the paper they're investigating but didn't return a message seeking comment Tuesday.
