The Naperville Country Club hosted one of this year’s U.S. Open Amateur Qualifying Tournaments, for the first time since 1999.
90 golfers, including many from around the country and some local players all swung through the course’s 18 holes.
“The club takes its presence in the community very seriously and it wants to be a piece of the community, a building block within the community, and bringing these types of events to the club is great for everyone, great for the community, great for the club, great for everyone. And the participants get the opportunity to play a great golf course,” said Naperville Country Club’s General Manager, Tim Anderson.
The one day, two-round event took place on July 25, with players not only competing against each other, but also with the heat and humidity.
In the end, three golfers made the cut to participate in the National Amateur Championship, which will take place in Michigan mid-August.
