After Confrad’s 2016 AGM: Golf

We have made arrangements for golf during your stay in Chicago at Westmoreland Country Club in Wilmette, IL. Westmoreland is a private, park-like course that has been recently renovated by golf architect Arthur Hills. The course is about a 30-40 minute drive from the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel and HDMZ.

Golf will be available on the following days:

Tuesday, June 7th            tee off after 12:00 PM

Wednesday, June 8th       tee off between 8:00-9:00 AM

Saturday, June 11th         tee off after 1:00 PM

Sunday, June 12th            tee off after 2:00 PM

The fee for golf is $240 USD per person per round and covers golf, caddy and refreshments.

As Westmoreland does not accept payment from non-members, your fee will be given to Frank Callahan, who will handle payment with the club on his monthly bill.

Clubs will be available for rent. You can also purchase golf equipment, shoes, clothing and accessories at the Westmoreland Pro Shop. Euros, checks, and credit and debit cards will not be accepted. The shop takes USD only.

If you will be playing golf, please email [email protected] with your preferred date and time.
Once we have collected the responses, we will let you know who has signed up and arrange further details.
