Professional Tour Golf is Definitely in Full Swing! by Publisher, Cheryl Justak Wow!  What a great week it was in the Chicagoland area for professional golf tournaments. Both the Encompass Championship (Part of the Champions Tour) and the Symetra Tour/Four Winds Invitational (Road to the LPGA Tour) were taking place at the same time during the week of June 17 through the 23. One taking place in Glenview, Illinois and the other in South Bend/Notre Dame, Indiana. Lots of driving and miles that week! MPI Event at Mission HillsWe started the week off on Monday, June 17 by playing in the 18th Annual Meeting Professional’s International Golf Classic and Summer Soiree at Mission Hills Country Club in Northbrook, IL.   This annual event is attended by the “Who’s Who” in the Meeting & Event Planning Industry and every one of the 18 holes had a major sponsor residing for the day to entertain and challenge the golfers coming through. I had not played Mission Hills in quite a few years.   It’s a great course, that’s tight and narrow and winds through an entire residential golf course community. New owners have recently purchased Mission Hills and are working hard to make improvements to the banquet facilities and the golf course. It was a great event and one we look forward to attending every year. (more…)
