History

 

In 1977, the Chicago Police Golf League was created by Robert Wagner, Jerry Dusek, Ron Rizzo and Don Dodge. The league started at the Palos C.C. in 1977 and moved to the Old Oak C.C. in 1982 . After 32 years of loyal patronage at Old Oak Golf Course, CPD Golf League was not welcomed back for the 2015 golf season. An exploratory committee was formed and sent out in search for  the future home course of CPD Golf League. Committee returned with three golf courses to present to the full membership. The three choices were Cog Hill, Waters Edge, and something else. Members voted for Waters Edge Golf Club in Worth IL.

Don Dodge  introduced the present league structure by developing teams by way of a draft system.   This system eliminated teams from being loaded with low handicap players that dominated matches.  It also gave players with less ability to be part of the league and be placed on a team.  With the draft system, the league became more competitive and created balance in the league standings.  The system also gave retirees the opportunity to participate and stay in touch with active police officers.  The league today is supported by 156 members.

The league is only open to any Police Officer that is or was a member of the Chicago Police Department. Entry forms can be obtained through this web page along with rules and procedures.
