Chicago's Cook County is home to several hundred courses you can play, but top among them is the long, boldly-bunkered No. 4 at Cog Hill. The brainchild of public course maven Joe Jemsek, Cog Hill played host to the Western Open for roughly 20 years, beginning in 1991 and to the 1997 U.S. Amateur, won by Matt Kuchar. Tiger Woods once gushed, "I love this golf course. The holes fit my eye." However, in an effort to restore the bark and bite to the Dick Wilson/Joe Lee layout nicknamed "Dubsdread," Rees Jones reworked the course, deepening the bunkers and re-contouring the greens. Our Top 100 panelists gave two thumbs up, though many pros balked. Still, in one of the greatest sports towns in the U.S. Cog Hill (No. 4) remains the place to play.

Gorgeous course. Truly tough for duffers, so it is appropriately named (dubsdread). But I disagree with Mickelson's sentiments about this course. It is challenging but playable. Phil M clearly has an axe to grind w/ Rees Jones. Maybe he's still upset about Rees' work on his hometown course in San Diego?
