CL Park District suggests gift of golfing on ice

CRYSTAL LAKE – Know a golfer who has everything? The Crystal Lake Park District suggests giving a gift certificate to cover the cost of a foursome golf team for the 42nd annual Doc Haznow Chili Open Golf Classic.

The event will be on the frozen surface of Crystal Lake on Jan. 19. Crystal Lake Main Beach is at 300 Lakeshore Drive. Golfers will play a nine-hole, par 32 course on the frozen lake.

If there is thin ice or open water, the event will be postponed to Feb. 2 or Feb. 16.

Participants don’t need golfing experience to participate; they just need to bring three friends, some short irons and a putter. All foursomes will receive a bowl of chili and the chance to win prizes that include golf bags, golf clubs, golf apparel and more.

Participants can decorate a sled and enter it in the Chili Open “Best Sled” contest for a chance to win golf prizes.

Painted golf balls, prizes and side games are provided to all golfers.

Tee-offs begin at 8 a.m. and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The cost is $115 a foursome. To register, call Connie Cooke at 815-459-0680, ext. 213, or visit www.crystallakeparks.org and use program code 1405-0.

Gift certificates can be bought from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Crystal Lake Park District Administrative Office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Ave., Crystal Lake.
