lemont homes for sale are now higher than palos parkI was writing an article on another one of my blogs about Palos Park real estate and how it is the priciest southwest suburb when I viewed the latest sales stats from 2010.  Palos Park is no longer the highest priced village in the area, a title it has held for many, many years.  The new town with a high price tag is now Lemont, IL, with an average sale price in 2010 of $394,873 vs. Palos Park's average home price at $380,888.

tiger woods at cog hills golf course lemont ilTiger Woods was in the house!  Today was the end of the  BMW Championship at Cog Hill Golf Course in Lemont, IL  70 PGA Tour players, including Tiger Woods, attended for a $7 million purse.  I could see the blimp floating above Cog Hill on my way home from a wedding downtown.

Lemont residents were aware of the ensuing traffic and took other routes.  My husband forgot about it and got stuck in some heavy traffic on Route 83 on his way back from one of his gigs (he plays in a band).

Tiger tied for 15th place.  The winner was 26 year old Dustin Johnson, who faced some bad golfing this summer, although he did win in Pebble Beach this past February.
