On January 8, 2011, Sugar Creek held the year's first outing -- the annual Chili Open. Cold temperatures and a dusting of snow did not deter a packed field of hardened Chili Open veterans and newcomers from heading out for a shotgun start tournament at 9 o'clock. Many golfers commented on the excellent conditions this year as opposed to last year's Open which saw brutal winds and almost a foot of snow cover. This morning the greens were rolling over 2 feet on the Stimpmeter as opposed to 2010's 2 inches. Blazing fast greens speeds(for this time of year) and firm fairway conditions contributed to low scores and lots of fun.
