take your best shot

carry on a proud tradition, and support the future of the NKFI

The NKFI Golf Classic is a fun day of golf hosted just outside Chicago at the Cantigny Golf Club in Wheaton. It is a fantastic, full day of friendly competition, golfer giveaways, course contests, and prizes. Once play has concluded, players and NKFI supporters are invited to join us at the clubhouse for a catered dinner, cocktails, and awards.

 

event details & overview

  • Tournament Format: The NKFI Golf Classic is played in a four-person, scramble format. Each team member begin each hole with a tee shot. Then, the team selects the best tee shot and continues play from that point. This process repeats on every shot until the ball is holed out.

 

  • Winners: First, second and third place foursomes will take home a beautiful crystal award and an exclusive prize.

  • Who Can Play: The Golf Classic is open to all amateur golfers.

 

  • Rain or Shine: The NKFI Golf Classic does not offer a back-up event date in the event of uncooperative weather, and it does not offer refunds.
