On Saturday, June 27th – aka a week from this Saturday – our event management compatriots at Bartend Chicago will be hosting their inaugural Bartend Chicago Invitational golf tournament at Jackson Park Golf Course.

Which, if you didn’t know, is the only 18 hole golf course with a Chicago address. And it’s nestled about a solid 8 iron away from Lake Michigan.

You probably don’t need to hear anymore, but we’ll give you all the details so we don’t get sued. The value play is grabbing three pals and registering a foursome. Or, if you don’t trust your friends, you can grab an individual ticket.

There’s also two different sponsorship packages for the Bartend Chicago Invitational, (foursome or foursomes included) so if your company or your boss are into golf and legit corporate outings, this is your chance.

No matter which way you sign up, food and beer from local establishments are included with the 18 holes. The tournament has a shotgun start at 10 am and the post party/open bar begins at 4 pm. At 4:30 the food opens, there’s live music, and raffle winners are announced. Lots going on.

The best part? A portion of the proceeds will benefit the non-profit organization Franciscan Outreach – one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest providers of programs to individuals without homes.

So let’s recap: Play the only 18 hole golf course in Chicago, enjoy local cheer and beer, and donate to a good cause — all on the first official Saturday of summer in Chicago.

Yeah, I think it’s about time you signed up. Full details and pricing are below – click on the banner to register.

But first, watch this teaser video to get in the right frame of mind for the 27th.

And try not to do that on your first shot. Or any of your shots.
