JPGA 3RD ANNUAL GOLF INVITATIONAL

Glorious day for golf…

On Saturday, September 19, 2020, the Jackson Park Golf Course and Jackson Park Golf Association hosted 15 of Chicago’s finest Leagues and Clubs for the annual showdown of determination and grit to crown CHICAGO’S BEST LEAGUE / CLUB 2020! 

The morning began with cool lakefront breezes, not a cloud in the sky, and warmed to ideal weather for golf! Golfers arrived early to warm-up at the range, practice putting, meet and greet teammates and competitors.  Everyone eagerly awaited the 9:00 AM shotgun start. 

Gifts included a JPGA washable mask, golf key chain with inspirational message, Luster product for men, glove from sponsor Wilson, and individual hand sanitizer bottles supplied by Chicago District Golf Association. 

Boxed lunches were catered by Bon Manger Catering, LLC and owner Andrea Dillon scored big points once again serving our guests with delicious and nutritious fare!

The raffle table overflowed with items to satisfy both men and women and included golf clubs, caps, and gloves from Wilson; gift basket from The First Tee of Greater Chicago; jewelry; handbags; golf lesson certificates; and so much more!
