Golfers at Minnesota's 25th annual Chilly Open hit the ice links tomorrow!
Ahh, it’s that time of year again on Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, Minnesota. It’s time for stir-crazy, spring-fevered golfers to don their longjohns and grab a few clubs—and maybe a hockey stick—and hit the icy links.
It’s time for The Chilly Open.
Tomorrow, February 7, is the day devoted Twin Cities-area golfers look forward to. Come snow, come sub-zero temperatures, come nipples so hard they slice through your shirt, there will be fairways plowed smooth, and holes drilled into the ice. There will be schnapps and beer, there will be bratwursts and chili.
And there will be our old friends from BogeyPro Golf, hosting the festivities on the 8th hole of Course #2 from 11am-5pm.
This year marks the 25th playing of the Chilly Open, and will be celebrated with a tent party complete with a live band after the golf.
And they said it couldn’t be done. And they said it wouldn’t catch on. And they said no one would play golf on a frozen lake in Minnesota in February. And they said our livers would never hold out.
Well, they may have been right about that last one…
Here’s to everybody at tomorrow’s festivities (I wish I could join you): Hit it on the smooth ice!
