Description

Save the Date and set your alarm for the shot gun start on Monday, August 9, 2021 for the 21st Annual Big Shoulders Fund Golf Classic at Olympia Fields. Hit the links with leading civic and corporate leaders as they participate in our Hole-in-One and Closest to the Pin contests, several raffles, silent auction, and much more. Always memorable and packed with fun, the Golf Classic raises funds for the Friends of Big Shoulders Scholarship Fund to help students study for a brighter future.

We’re working closely with Olympia Fields Country Club to ensure we are meeting state and municipal guidelines for safety. This will include things like activities taking place outside, gift bags that’ll include masks and personal hand sanitizer, social distancing markers, locker room cleaning throughout the day, and more.
 

Golf Classic History

The Golf Classic raises funds for the Friends of Big Shoulders Scholarship which provides scholarships to deserving children who want to study for a brighter future in one of Chicago’s inner-city schools. The event’s continued success is due to a committed and active group of volunteers who comprise the Golf Classic Committee.
