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.

 

John F. Robinson is a strategic partner with StoneCreek Partners and Mungeam Golf Design, working with clients involved with golf course redevelopment and repurposing.

Life Sciences Real Estate is Hot

Life sciences real estate is hot among property developers and investors, and has emerged as a highly-desired real estate asset class.  “Life Sciences” refers to the booming industry made up of such industries as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, biomedical devices, genetics and genomics, and research and development (R&D).

 

Life sciences real estate is exceptionally hot among investors, as 2020 heads towards year-end.   The life sciences industry was already a top economic sector as 2019 came to a close, and this Covid-19 pandemic year has only propelled investor interest in the industry.

 

Life sciences facilities are typically clustered in areas with strong university research and teaching programs in the life sciences, and situated in proximity to other facilities and their tenants.  In fact, seven of the top 10 biological science programs are at graduate universities located in the top life sciences clusters of Boston, the San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego.

 

Some of the top life sciences clusters includes the following cities and districts:

 

  • Boston-Cambridge
  • San Francisco bay area
  • San Diego
  • New Jersey
  • Raleigh-Durham
  • Washington, DC – Baltimore
  • New York City greater metro area
  • Philadelphia
  • Los Angeles
  • Chicago

 

 

Life Sciences Real Estate is Hot

Life sciences real estate is a hot real estate asset class among real estate investors and developers.

 

As part of the office and industrial real estate asset class, life sciences properties are a more specialized and generally more expensive facility than typical general-purpose office and industrial properties.    The pairing of university bio-science research with private-sector life sciences companies seeking to leverage such research, is a more fine-tuned version of the well-known Science and Technology Parks that got their start in the 1950’s.
