Watch Out For That Creek!

Poplar Creek Country Club
1400 Poplar Creek Dr.
Hoffman Estates, IL 60169

(847) 781-3681

At 6,300 yards and a course-par of 70, golfers will find Poplar Creek Country Club undemanding of a Driver off the tee box. That doesn’t mean it’s not a challenge. With water reachable on 14 out of 18 holes and heavy tree-lined fairways, Poplar Creek demands a straighter ball over the distance.

Don’t let the ‘Country Club’ moniker fool you either. Poplar Creek is a ‘Muni’, owned and operated by the Hoffman Estates Park District, which means that it’s subject to every last etiquette-ignorant hacker in the area. This was most noticeable on the greens, which looked like nobody had fixed a ball mark since the Clinton administration.

However, the author can attest to their outing and banquet services as being friendly, courteous and accommodating, with a large ballroom on the upper-level as a good venue large parties.

The golf carts have an accurate GPS system and the beverage carts were well-stocked and ever present on a hot and humid day, during one of those 5-hour outings we’ve become accustomed to trudging through.
