WELCOME TO BLISS CREEK GOLF COURSE

 

Bliss Creek’s beautiful tree-lined fairways and well-placed water hazards and bunkers offer a sporty, yet challenging test for all skill levels. Everything you need to know about Bliss Creek is just a click away. And if you need further assistance, the golf shop is readily awaiting your call.

Since taking over in 2000, we have added a new golf outing facility (Pine Room), halfway house, outdoor eating areas, driving range, and a practice putting green. The first hole green was relocated, making it one of the most challenging starting holes in the Chicagoland area. Just recently a new cart path was built along the left side of the 1st fairway, along with putting in tile to help with the drainage. If you are looking to book an outing, Bliss Creek is the place. Our packages are comprehensive, affordable, and completely customizable. Whether you chose the Pine Room with it’s scenic views of the course or you take advantage of the casual atmosphere of the bar and dining room, Bliss Creek can make any event the perfect place for your special guests.

Help us raise funds to help the kids have fun at Camp “I AM ME”

The Terrence Hoyle Memorial Golf Open remembers a great leader in the Fire Investigation community. Terrence R. Hoyle was a nationally known arson investigator whose expertise regularly was tapped by the Chicago Fire Department and insurance companies and law firms involved in litigation, often over catastrophic fires. Together with a son Stephen, Mr. Hoyle operated Hoyle & Associates, a private fire investigation firm in Bensenville. The elder Hoyle also headed the Illinois Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators and was a past president of the Chicago Special Agents Association. Mr. Hoyle, an Evanston native, began his fire sleuthing career in 1961, after service in the Marine Corps. He is credited with helping organize the Chicago Fire Department’s bomb and arson unit. Working under the direction of John Kennedy & Associates in the 1960s, Mr. Hoyle early on in his career recognized the importance of education in the nuances of fires and their telltale causes. As an instructor of fire causes, he emphasized training to accurately pinpoint and report on how and where fires start. Of the many fires over Mr. Hoyle’s 37-year career, two stand out: the MGM Grand Hotel inferno in Las Vegas, in which 87 people died on Nov. 21, 1980; and a 1977 fire that claimed the lives of 161 people inside the Beverly Hills Supper Club in Southgate, Ky., near Cincinnati. He demonstrated that the supper club fire was not caused by faulty aluminum wiring, as alleged in lawsuits brought by survivors of the victims. In the MGM case, he established that the hotel’s choice of wall coverings and furniture did not amount to negligence or contribute to the fire.
