The Rescue Remembrance Project made an appearance Wednesday at the Christopher Wheatley Memorial Golf Outing at Cog Hill with "Rescue 5," a FDNY truck that lost 11 firefighters in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Hundreds of miles from New York and 11 years removed from the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center, FDNY Rescue 5 serves as a moving memorial—a tribute to the firefighters who lost their lives when the towers fell. Rescue 5 was one of just a handful of heavy rescue apparatus to respond to the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The Staten Island-based company lost 11 men that day; only one firefighter from the unit survived. The truck was built in 1996, and served as a front-line rescue vehicle until 2005. It went out of service in 2011, at which point it was put up for auction by the city of New York. Back in Illinois, a group of firefighters was ready to step in. The Rescue Remembrance Project was founded last year after a group of firefighters…

A recent report by Golf Digest ranked the Lemont course No. 22 on its annual list of the 75 toughest courses in the country.
Dubsdread, also known as Course #4 at Cog Hill Golf Club in Lemont, was recently ranked by Golf Digest as one the most difficult courses in America.

Making its first appearance on the list, Dubsdread ranked No. 22, according to a press release.

The renovation included upgrades to the strategy, design, integrity and overall character of the course, according to the release.
