Boulder Ridge Country Club Addtional Information & History

Encompassing 436 acres, this Lake in the Hills residential golf course community opened its 18-hole facility in 1990. Unusually spacious, the 200-acre layout is one of the Chicago region's largest. The architectural team for this 7,130 yard, par 72 creation is Bob Lohmann and Fuzzy Zoeller. Lohmann's name is relatively unfamiliar to those outside his profession. Born in 1952 Lohmann learned his craft under the tutelage of Dick Nugent and Ken Killian and was instrumental in Forest Preserve National's design during the early 1980. But because Lohmann's name was not widely known and hence, wasn't strong enough to attract potential buyers to Boulder Ridge, the effervescent and high-profile Fuzzy Zoeller was brought into the equation. Though strictly a design consultant, Zoeller's name is the one that has been hyped. It's Fuzzy's photograph in the Boulder Ridge ads; it was Fuzzy who met the media in publicity sessions. If nothing else, linkage with a wellknown PGA pro reflects the high-stakes atmosphere present at multimillion dollar golf course properties. The association of a popular PGA figure with contemporary golf cOurse communities has become a common marketing strategy. Par Development, a subsidiary of the Plote Company, is serving as the primary developer. Upon completion of its several planned building stages, the site will contain singlefamily homes, patio homes and townhouses. Initial single family, one-half acre lots were priced in the $83,000 to $170,000 range. Custom-built homes of $400,000 and up will be commonplace throughout the community. Boulder Ridge property owners will be the primary members of the golf club-with initiation fees in the $20,000 range. Some nonresident memberships at $25,000 were also available.
