Chicago Fall Classic

On Saturday, October 21, 2017 and Sunday, October 22, 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour hosted a tournament in Wheaton, Illinois at Cantigny Golf Club. The front and back nine were split between courses. The front nine was played on Hillside and the back nine was played on Woodside. The players continued to perform well as the tournament progressed throughout the weekend.  A major challenge was the extreme weather condition, but this did not deter them one bit.
