The Record’s charity golf outing returns to the tee box on Sept. 15 in Wilmette

The Record Open is back on course for Year 3.

Join The Record North Shore on Friday, Sept. 15, in Wilmette for the nonprofit newsroom’s third charity golf outing in support of responsible, independent community news. 

Tee time for The Record Open III is 3 p.m. that day at Wilmette Golf Club, 3900 Fairway Drive in Wilmette. All proceeds from the event go directly into impactful local reporting.

After doubling attendance from Year 1 to 2, The Record Open has increased capacity in the third go-round, thanks to the expansive facilities of the Wilmette Golf Club.

All participating golfers will receive 18 holes with a cart; a meal from The Lawn Grill, the new restaurant housed in the Wilmette Golf Club; multiple drink tickets; and chances to win prizes for winning a number of contests, including lowest group score, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin. 

Last year’s tournament was a nailbiter with Steve Weir winning a putt-off to break a tie at the end of the round.

Check in for the tournament begins at 2 p.m. with a shotgun start at 3 p.m. The format is a scramble, in which a team of four selects the best shot among the group and all golfers take their next shot from that location.

The overall winners in the first two Record Opens were:

• Record Open I: Monica Thompson, Alex Thompson, Julia Goebel and Julie Saltzman
• Record Open II: Steve Weir, Andy Warner, Andy Kulick and Andy Schaeffer*
* Decided by tie-breaking putt-off
