Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club is now open for your enjoyment. The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) has created several guidelines for all golf facilities. Along with those guidelines Bridges of Poplar Creek has developed a complete “Touchless Golf Experience” for your safety. These guidelines will be strictly enforced and failure to comply will result in being removed from our facility. We require all our guests to practice social distancing during their round.
