Golfers, mark your calendars! Here’s your chance to play in the biggest golf event this winter. Every golfer has played in a summer tournament, but how many have played in January? You’ll play nine snowy, fun holes of golf followed by a warm bowl of chili in the newly renovated Black Brook Golf Course clubhouse. Golfers will be challenged to drive shots across frozen tundra and putt balls laden with ice. You’ll hit orange golf balls to snow-covered greens on the 9 hole course of 65 – 100 yard holes. Last year more than 175 golfers participated in this event, so you’ll want to register early!
Prizes will be awarded in men’s, women’s and junior’s divisions. The cost to enter the Chili Open is $18 which includes golf fees, chili, prizes and more. The Chili Open is sponsored by the City of Mentor with proceeds benefiting the United Way of Lake County. Sponsorship opportunities are available by calling United Way of Lake County at (440) 352-3166. If the course is not covered with snow we will play the normal yardage so bring your whole set of clubs. For more information on this event or to register, call the Mentor Recreation Department at (440) 974-5720.
