Chili Open 2011

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.

  1. This looks fun! Speaking of winter activity, do you allow cross country skiing? I'm not talking bush-wacking destroyers of greens and fairways. I'm talking about good, considerate skiers who know where and where not to go on a golf course. I live in Villa Park and ski (skating technique)a lot at Arrowhead (groomed) in Wheaton, but you are so close to home! It also could be an easy money maker for you if you groomed a bit and charged a fee.
