Course Design for Big Stick Golf Club
Golf course design for Big Stick Golf Club, by PGA Tour star John Daly and golf course architect John F. Robinson. The site for the planned golf course is located in Bolingbrook, Illinois.
This 8,367-yard monster is the ‘brain child’ of Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar. Big Stick will bring Daly’s “grip-it-and-rip-it” style of golf to Illinois, with the par-5 holes exceeding 600 yards and the par 4s measuring out at more than 450 yards. Golf course architect John Robinson with collaborate in bringing Daly’s golf sensibilities to this golf course.
The Village of Bolingbrook is now home to the Arthur Hills-designed Bolingbrook Golf Club, which opened in 2002. The new 18-hole Daly/Robinson design will be located adjacent to the existing Bolingbrook Golf Club, creating a total of 36 holes of championship-caliber golf. The new course would be served by the existing Bolingbrook golf clubhouse, shown above. The golf course design for Big Stick Golf Club along with the existing golf club are the centerpiece of an 800-acre exclusive residential development. Brolingbrook Golf Club is located at 2001 Rodeo Drive in Bolingbrook, a southwest suburb of Chicago in Will and DuPage counties.
