Creating a thread to house all information related to Second City Golf Club’s 2023 Major - The Summit of Mt. Prospect:
Date: Saturday, June 3rd, 2023
Course: Mt. Prospect Golf Club, Mt. Prospect, Illinois
Time: Tee time block starting at approximately 10am, waiting on course to confirm when their permanent tee times end
Cost: $55 walking, $72 riding (paid at course)
Entry fees: $25 paid to Conroy419@gmail.com on PayPal closer to event date for charity donation and side games (event coordinator will send email requesting final payment in the spring)
Guaranteed spots are currently filled for the event but alternates will have the chance to play. If alternates can book their own foursomes close to the event’s tee time block they will be allowed in the event. Tee times MUST be a reasonable time after tee time block. If the last event group is 11:10 a foursomes of alternates at 12:30 will not be admitted. Event coordinator will reach out to alternates closer to date to coordinate.
Format: Net stroke play with closest to the pins on 3 par 3s. NIT spot to low net, spot on 2C Roost team to low net.
Mount Prospect is a great municipal course filled with template holes and some of the wildest greens you will see on a public golf course. This is the third year 2CGC has put on the event and would love to welcome outsiders from different Roosts and new 2C members alike.

I found it unique and dynamic, a lot like the Charleston Muni. Far from perfect, but better than 95% of the municipal courses I’ve played since, and far better than what I imagine the previous iteration looked like. I recall that round fondly, and not just because of the company.
