Bob O’ Link Golf Club was established in 1916 on the Bob O’ Link Farm as a golf club for men and women. In 1924, the membership voted to become a “Men’s Only Club”. Currently, Bob O’Link is one of only 12 Men’s Only clubs in the United States. Originally designed by Donald Ross on 120 acres, the course was rebuilt in 1924 after the purchase of the 40 additional acres of land west of the Skokie River. Captain Charles Hugh Alison of the English firm of Colt, McKenzie and Alison redesigned the course to utilize the additional land. Though renovated at times, the Alison design has served as the foundation of the course since re-opening on July 4th 1925. In 2015, the members of Bob O’Link courageously passed the Centennial Initiative Project. This was the largest undertaking since Alison redesigned the Ross course in 1924. It can best be described as an architectural restoration that is sympathetic to the modern golfer and includes state of the art infrastructure. The project, led by famed architect, Jim Urbina included restoration of 60 original Alison bunkers, recapturing acres of lost fairway space, removal of trees that had suffocated turf, rebuilding of all greens to USGA specifications while maintaining the historic Alison shapes and contours, a new, state of the art irrigation and drainage pump system, and regressing all playing surfaces. The course re-opened in June of 2016. Our department objective is to produce one of the top conditioned golf courses in the country and exceed our Members’ expectations.
