During the second weekend in October, golfers have the opportunity to tee off in fall golf tournaments at Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club in Hoffman Estates, IL.

On Saturday, October 12, participate in an 18-hole individual stroke play tournament at the Bridges' Final Challenge. For this fun day of golf, tee-times will begin at 10:00AM and scores will be broken into flights based on the amount of golfers. Tickets are $80 per golfer and include green/cart fees and a buffet dinner following the round. Flight winners will also receive a gift card to the Pro Shop.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Then, on Sunday, October 13, golfers have the opportunity to take it up a notch with the ProAm Scramble. Each team may have one professional and three amateurs or four amateurs on their team for the chance to win big prizes! Foursomes are $500 and include green/cart fees and a buffet dinner following the found. Winners will also receive monetary prizes based on the number of golfers.

Established in 1976, Bridges of Poplar Creek joined the golf scene in the Northwestern Chicago suburbs before being renovated in 2011 and undergoing a grand reinvention of the already stout 35-year old golf course. The addition of multiple tee boxes fulfills desires of all golfers alike with advanced golfers seeking added length and new golfers seeking shorter distances. Re-configured fairways and bunkers, planting of fescue for depth & definition, and new lakes make for challenging, yet fair hazards as well as terrific strategic shot values. Picturesque, tree-lined and immaculate conditions from No. 1 tee to No. 18 green, a perfect blend of bark and benevolence satisfies golfers of all abilities.
