The Swedish American Chamber of Commerce Chicago hereby invites you to our 2022 Annual Golf Outing.

The Golf Outing is the perfect occasion to spend a day outside with friends, colleagues and clients at the Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove. Participants can create their own team of four or sign up individually and be assigned to a team for the golf scramble.

VIN 90, the Arboretum Club’s new restaurant, will have burgers & brats hot off the grill for purchase for those who want to enjoy lunch at the club before hitting the golf course. Lunch & beverages will be available for purchase throughout the day.

After the game, we will gather for the Award Ceremony to announce the winners and pass on the Les Nelson Trophy to the Open Category winning team. Following the ceremony we will mingle and enjoy dinner on the patio.

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE GOLF OUTING?
ABOUT THE SCANDNAVIAN GOLF CLASSIC AND THE LES NELSON TROPHY

The Swedish American Chamber of Commerce, Chicago used to be called MASTA before it got its current name. During their time as members of the organization, the avid golfer Les Nelson and his wife initiated an annual golf tournament. For many years the event was held at the Itasca Country Club. Later on when SACC Chicago and the Swedish Consulate started hosting interns from Sweden it was decided that the proceeds from the Golf Outing would go to support the interns to give them the opportunity to live and work in Chicago. 

In 2000, the now existing Les Nelson Trophy was handed out to the winning team for the very first time. Every year the winner's name is engraved on the trophy plaque.

Les Nelson and his wife have now passed away, but it is thanks to them that the Golf Outing is still one of SACC Chicago's most celebrated social networking events and that the trophy is awarded to the winning team.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON THE GOLF COURSE!
