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,”ásaid 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.”
