NDGC... Lots of choices my friend.
Look at Cantigny Golf Club. It's a great track and not too terribly far from Cog.
If you are heading East, there is also a wonderful track called Harborside International. It's between Chicago and Gary Indiana, with two 18 hole tracks. It's a great palce and has fantastic views of the city from that southern perspective.
Let me know if you get other thoughts and I can steer you a bit!
