Douglass spent seven seasons with Bears, set single-season NFL rushing record for QBs
As a former Chicago Bears quarterback, Bobby Douglass was known more for his running than for his ability to pass the ball.
That was a long time ago. But the 72-year-old wasn’t going to pass on the opportunity to run Edgebrook Golf Course in Sandwich.
“It’s kind of a challenge to me and that’s a big part of it,” said Douglass, in his first season at Edgebrook. “I have been out here almost every day and it’s been hard work, but it’s been enjoyable. Being on a golf course is not the worst thing in the world. I’m getting outdoors and seeing progress.”
