Chili Open Golf Classic rescheduled for Feb. 16

CRYSTAL LAKE – Because of poor ice conditions, the Chili Open Golf Classic has been rescheduled Feb. 16 on Crystal Lake. 

Park district staff is holding out hope that a drop in temperatures over the next few weeks will create safe ice conditions for the event held at Main Beach, 300 Lakeshore Drive.

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). Register online at www.crystallakeparks.org and use program code 1405-0. Or register in person at the park district's office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Ave. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Golfers play one championship, nine-hole, par 32 course on frozen Crystal Lake. No golfing experience is required, just three friends, a few short irons, and a putter.

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

Decorate a sled and enter the Chili Open "Best Sled" contest for your chance to win even more great golf prizes.  Painted golf balls, prizes and side games are provided to all golfers.

For information, call Connie Cooke at 815-459-0680, ext. 213.
