On Monday, June 25, amateur foursomes will be paired with golf professionals from 50 of the top-rated, most prestigious private country clubs in the nation for the exciting Golf Championship. Groups of five golfers (four amateurs and one professional) will tee off at Onwentsia Club in either a morning or an afternoon round and have the opportunity to participate in either the Best Ball or Scramble format. Groups who participate in the Best Ball format will compete for the coveted June Seaman Trophy, named in honor of Mrs. June Seaman, the chair of the first event in 1961. Prizes are also awarded to the second-, third- and fourth-place finishing teams in Best Ball — Net category, and the top-finishing groups in the Scramble and Best Ball — Gross formats.
The Lurie Children’s Pro Amateur Golf Championship is the longest-running and most successful event of the Founders’ Board of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The event has raised more than $20 million in support of the mission of the hospital since its inception in 1961. Net proceeds from this special celebration will support the Founders’ Board’s three-year, $7.5 million commitment to New Frontiers in Pediatric Medicine and Research.
