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.
