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

Hit the links with leading civic and corporate leaders from as they participate in our Hole-in-One and Closest to the Pin contests, several raffles, silent auction, and much more.
