Mark Calcavecchia once said this 1964 Dick Wilson/Joe Lee design outside Chicago "could host a U.S. Open tomorrow." It won't be the 2017 Open that was awarded to Erin Hills but Cog Hill was very close to earning the national championship. Time, technology and soft, inconsistent greens had removed the fangs from a course nicknamed Dubsdread, but a 2008 redo by Rees Jones deepened and repositioned bunkers and stretched it to nearly 7,400 yards. "There aren't too many golf courses where you absolutely love the layout," Tiger Woods said a few years back. "I love this golf course. The holes fit my eye." Dropped from our 2008 rankings due to its closure, Cog Hill No. 4 is back and likely here to stay.
