26th Annual Golf Outing



The Grove Foundation's 26th Annual Golf Outing & Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, September 8th, 2018, with a 2:00pm shotgun start. The event will be held at the historic Downers Grove Park District Golf Course. The fee for participating is $50, which includes 9 holes of golf, golf prizes, a drink ticket and a dinner served by Skuddlebutt's.

Golf prizes include: Low Gross Foursome, Low Net Foursome, Jim & Judy Russ Sr. Team Putting Champions, Women's Long Drive, Men's Long Drive, Women's Closest to the Pin, Men's Closest to the Pin & a Chipping Contest. The outing also includes a raffle with great prizes and a Betting Hole.

As an IRS 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, a portion of your entry fee may be tax deductible. Please mark your calendar and plan to join this fun and charitable event in 2018! This event sold out last year.

This fun event has been held every year since 1992 at the beautiful, historic Downers Grove Park District Golf Course. Typically held the Saturday after Labor Day each September, the outing is a great way to support the Foundation. Local merchants donate prizes, catering is provided by Skuddlebutts, and the Downers Grove North girls' golf team volunteers for club cleaning.

Registration will open in August. We look forward to seeing you on the course!
