LEMONT, Ill. The slate for the 105th Championship Season of the Chicago District Golf Association was released on Monday, highlighted by the 88th Illinois State Amateur Championship returning to Bloomington Country Club. In all 10 CDGA and Illinois State championships will be conducted as part of 55 total events. Registration will open for all CDGA or Illinois State tournaments on Monday, Jan. 22.

The Illinois State Amateur returns to Bloomington for the eighth time, and first since tour professional Luke Guthrie’s 2009 victory. The 72-hole championship of amateur golf in the state will be contested July 17-19. The Association’s championship, the 99th CDGA Amateur, moves up a week on the calendar, to June 18-21, at Briarwood Country Club in Deerfield. The CDGA Am will be Briarwood’s first CDGA or state championship of any kind, after the club served as a second site for last year’s Illinois Open.

“We are excited to visit a pair of great clubs for two of our premier championships,” said Nick Scillia, CDGA Director of Rules and Competitions. “Both have recently served as championship venues and will provide a fitting challenge to the best amateur golfers in the state and Chicago District.”

Other state championships include the 26th Illinois State Mid-Amateur, Aug. 27-28 at Glen Oak Country Club in Glen Ellyn. Glen Oak most-recently hosted the 2011 Illinois State Amateur. The 32nd Illinois State Senior Amateur visits Riverside Golf Club in North Riverside, Sept. 12-14.

Hinsdale Golf Club, site of the founding of the CDGA in 1914 and, most-recently, the CDGA Amateur in 2014, hosts the 4th CDGA Mid-Amateur, May 21-23. The 17th CDGA Senior Amateur moves to Itasca Country Club in 2018, which hosted the CDGA Senior Amateur Four-Ball this past season.

“Our goal is to always host championships at elite sites,” Scillia said. “We look forward to putting on championships at these venues.”

In total, the 2018 slate features eight multi-day Illinois State or CDGA championships, two one-day CDGA championships, 25 Illinois State or CDGA championship qualifiers and 20 USGA qualifiers. The schedule begins in late April and runs through mid-October. For complete details on the schedule, visit CDGA.org/Tournaments.
