Bull Valley Golf Club is the reality of the dreams of three visionaries and is perhaps the most challenging and sensually stimulating course in the Midwest.

Situated sixty miles northwest of downtown Chicago in Woodstock Illinois, the course at Bull Valley Golf Club is a very tough Dick Nugent-designed track where housing flanks a number of the fairways.

The course is laid out on rolling terrain with long, difficult par fours – only a couple of the two-shot holes on the card measure less than 400 yards – characterising the layout, especially on the run of holes around the turn between the 9th and 12th.

Only one of the four short holes (the 179-yard 8th) plays to a putting surface that’s not aquatically protected whilst the tee shot on the finishing hole must be steered between two mature oak trees on either side of the fairway before an approach is played to a green guarded short and left by water.

This is the best golf club in Chicagoland period. Nothing compares to it, it might a little out of the way, but it's simply my favorite track. Where else in Chicago can play a course with that many elevation changes with such a unique layout. It's simply a top players course and nothing more.

Located 30 minutes outside of Chicago, Bull Valley offers an experience that rivals that of Medinah and Olympia Fields. Every hole is unique and challenging. Named by Golf Digest at the #30 most difficult golf course in the US. Beyond its difficulty it was created out of moraine hills and glacial features. Truly a gem in the Chicagoland area that needs to be acknowledged.
Great Course. Too bad its going bankrupt due to lack of play. Probably because course is too difficult and in the middle of nowhere'

Perhaps you played the course from the wrong tees..any average player shouldn't play Bull Valley from the Tips or they will get beaten up. Choose the right tes and you would have been fine. As for the course, it's never been in better shape-financially the club is rock solid. If you're going to make stupid comments, you should get your facts right and play from the ladies tees next time.
