Marengo Ridge Golf Club, which began as a modest nine-hole course, endured a 25-year gap before taking full advantage of the surrounding landscape's diverse terrain and expanding into a sprawling 18-hole course. Course architect William James Spear broke ground on the front nine in 1963, designating a large, renovated cow barn as the first clubhouse and cleaving nine holes through densely wooded hills. This layout proved sufficient until a late ‘80s spike in the local caddy population—and business boom—made the addition of a back nine desirable. Construction began in 1988 and, two years later, a new nine-hole track opened for play, presenting golfers with a profound shift in scenery, as this layout was built on an expanse of open farmland. The old clubhouse lasted for three more years, but the awkward location and argyle-wearing cattle called for the construction of a new clubhouse to match the new 18-hole golf club.
Today, golfers enjoy the diverse layout of the 18-hole course from the first hole, the longest par 4 on the course, to the last, a par 5 severe dogleg right. Water enters play on nine holes, including on the first six, creating the potential for an extending water break for thirsty golf carts.
Course at a Glance:
Years ago, a friend advised Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Russell to visit a chiropractor after he injured his back during a workout. He was unfamiliar with chiropractic work, but trusted his friend's advice. Not only did the treatments work, but the philosophy of drug-free care also appealed to him. Russell decided to earn his own chiropractic degree at the National University of Health Sciences.
Today, Dr. Russell treats patients at Russell Chiropractic Care with the same techniques that brought him relief. Spinal decompression gently expands the vertebrae, allowing them to properly realign, and electrical muscle stimulation speeds the healing of injured muscles. Massages and acupuncture promote healthier bodies and minds. Patients can also find relief from foot pain with orthotics designed to slip into shoes.
Dr. Rania Agha leads the team at Summit Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, a practice with a menu of clinical cosmetic services representing her extensive expertise. Dr. Agha particularly specializes in treating skin of any ethnicity, fine-tuning skin-resurfacing sessions and chemical peels to ensure each client’s complexion glows like a contented lightning bug. She and her staff of skilled technicians use laser light to remove excess hair, fade unwanted tattoos, and erase veins. Should guests wish for more dramatic transformations, body-contouring treatments and liposuction are also available.
When it comes to alleviating pain, Doctor of Chiropractic Shelly Posejpal and her staff understand that there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. That's why they take into account each patient's symptoms and health history before recommending a course of treatment. For chronic pain they may recommend spinal or soft tissue manipulation, while injuries may require techniques like electrical muscle stimulation. Optimal's team of massage therapists, meanwhile, can help encourage the body to heal itself by customizing treatments that draw on Swedish, sports, deep-tissue, and pre-natal therapy. Of course, a proper diet can play an optimal role in alleviating chronic symptoms, and so Dr. Posejpal and company also hold nutrition counseling sessions designed to help clients make healthier choices and resolve any anger they may be harboring towards breakfast meats.
From mending battle wounds to performing breast enhancement, Dr. Taek Kim has had a long and storied career. After graduating from medical school in Seoul, South Korea, the young Dr. Kim became a captain in the South Korean armed forces and flew the skies as a flight surgeon for Korean and American troops. He relocated to the United States, where he performed more than 8,000 surgeries and began specializing in cosmetic procedures. Today, as the founder and medical director of Renaissance Cosmetic Laser, Dr. Kim uses his years of experience to help both men and women enhance their appearance with services ranging from water-assisted liposuction to wrinkle-smoothing injections. Light technology also takes a polishing role in his service repertoire via laser spider-vein therapy, IPL photofacials, and procedures to install theater spotlights on a client's favorite features. When Dr. Kim isn't highlighting natural beauty, he channels his impressive resumé and renowned skills as a surgeon into mentoring young physicians as a faculty member of Hinsdale Hospital's residency program.
