The centerpiece of a premier, 616-acre residential country-club community in Elgin, Bowes Creek Golf Course is an 18-hole public course designed by award-winning architect Rick Jacobson.
The environmentally planned golf course integrates all the natural elements the native landscape has to offer, including Bowes Creek, improved woodland and wetland areas, a lake, rolling farmland, stands of mature trees and scenic bluff slopes, to create an aesthetically pleasing, playable and challenging course. The rustic setting features expansive fairways and sweeping bunkers with fingers of grass drifting into the sand and fescue grasses edging the bunker faces.
The course has five sets of tees for each hole and distances ranging from 6,900 yards to 5,100 yards to accommodate the dramatically different skill and experience levels of golfers.
A full practice area, complete with an elevated, 30-station driving range with target greens at varying distances, putting and chipping greens, and private lesson tees; a fully equipped proshop stocking name-brand golf equipment and a wide selection of men’s and women’s golf apparel; and a multipurpose clubhouse featuring locker rooms, a first-class banquet facility for events and gatherings, and Porter’s Pub, a casual, cozy, English-style restaurant and bar.
