Calumet Country Club was once a private club that hosted the 1924 Western Open and the 1945 Chicago Victory Open. The Chicago Victory Open as won by Byron Nelson as part of his record-setting 11 consecutive wins and 18 total wins in 1945. Today the course is fighting existence and it’s ownership group is trying to turn this south side gem into a distribution center. We are simply here to enjoy this Donald Ross course as long as we can.
Sign Up Below, field will be limited to 36 golfers and I will ask everyone to be locked in on July 27th.
Posted on Roll Call, and realized I should have just done it here. I see on there a listing for a charity… if that’s a thing for each event - I’d be happy to throw some good options out. I previously worked for the state association of nonprofits ---- and currently, work for one that has a site just south in Chicago Heights (with others around the area) helping non-college-bound youth find jobs and career paths. Also, happy to throw out some good options that have a sport/outdoor component to them that would tie in. Or, if there is a process and ideas already out there - I’ll just be quiet, BYOB on Aug 6, and enjoy my first event!
So, I’d be lying if i didnt really start thinking about this event until this week. Really wanting to keep this a very open and friendly. The course won’t be perfect, so with that said no need to go too serious, but I’m thinking a group best ball would be best to get all the swings in but still have some friendly competition.
Also stole this google doc, so the charity piece got copied too. The only thing I was thinking was maybe a $5 donation to hold your spot in the event and was going to find a local golf charity to donate too if so.
Hey @SecondCityGC this event is fast approaching and I’m going to be confirming numbers with the course early next week. Please update the google document by 7/26 PM whether you are in or out still. While, I’m not going to be requiring a charity payment to hold a spot, I will take a snapshot of the google document and put any late drops on the SCGC no fly list. I do get life happens and will have my DMs open, but please this isn’t a third job for me to be tracking everyone down and a deposit was also placed on my CC for all the tee times. Tee times and the final event details will be send out the first week of August.
