Chicago Scots host 21st annual Kilted Classic golf tournament

Experience the most unique golf tournament on this side of the pond while enjoying performances from Highland Dancers, Scotland’s finest whisky, beer and food tastings, Scottish trivia and much more. Chicago Scots, the oldest non-profit organization in Illinois, is celebrating its 176th anniversary this year and recently hosted the 21st annual Kilted Classic golf tournament at Cantigny Golf Course. Players could enter the tournament as a foursome, pair, or single, and were matched with a group after registering online.

The most unique golf tournament this side of the pond

Dubbed the most unique golf tournament this side of the pond, Kilted Classic players enjoyed performances from Highland Dancers, got to taste Scotland’s finest with whisky, beer, and food stations, test their knowledge with Scottish trivia, participate in competitions like Beat the Scot and Longest Drive, plus got the chance to win a bottle of whisky on every hole.  “We’re thrilled to be able to host our annual golf tournament for the 21st year,” said Gus Noble, President of the Chicago Scots. “It’s something we look forward to all year and is tons of fun, all while supporting a cause we deeply care about.”

Following all the fun on the links, golfers and non-golfers were invited to stay for a causal dinner, cocktails and an auction to benefit Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, Chicago Scots’ primary beneficiary for over one hundred years that offers a range of outstanding services including Assisted Living, Sheltered Care, Memory Care, Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care, and Respite Care.
