CRYSTAL LAKE – Because of poor ice conditions, the Chili Open Golf Classic has been rescheduled for Feb. 2 on Crystal Lake.

It had been originally scheduled for Saturday at Crystal Lake Main Beach, 300 Lakeshore Drive in Crystal Lake.

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

The registration fee for the Chili Open is $115 per team (foursome).

If ice conditions are poor, the event will be rescheduled for Feb, 16.

Golfers will play one championship, nine-hole, par 32 course on frozen Crystal Lake. No golfing experience is needed, just three friends, a few short irons and a putter. Painted golf balls, prizes and side games are provided.

All foursomes will receive a bowl of chili and the chance to win several prizes, including golf bags, golf clubs, golf apparel and gift cards.
