Due to poor ice conditions, the Chili Open Golf Classic has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 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. Crystal Lake Main Beach is located at 300 Lakeshore Drive in Crystal Lake. Tee times begin at 8:00 am 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. Office hours are 8:30 am-5 pm Monday-Friday.
The Chili Open Golf Classic is a favorite winter tradition for many. Golfers will play one championship, nine-hole, par 32 course on frozen Crystal Lake. You don't have to have any golfing experience to participate, just bring three friends, a few short irons, a putter and come have fun on the lake. All foursomes will receive our great giveaway, one bowl of chili and the chance to win several prizes. Prizes will 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.
