"Golfers are excited about the tournament at Olympic Club, and its going to be the top sports story all week. We thought this would be a fun way to engage our Facebook fans."

Opened in 1999, the 7,100-yard Stonewall Orchard course was the first Arthur Hills-design in Chicago. Playing through heavily wooded, mature Oak and Pine trees, the course is on rotation as host site of the Illinois PGA Section Championship, along with legendary private clubs Medinah and Olympia Fields.

Stonewall Orchard will host this year's IPGA Section Championship in September.

Stonewall Orchard features natural, rolling landscapes throughout its magnificent 18-hole Lake County layout. The course also features an abundance of tranquil wetlands and wildlife.

From the 4,968-yard junior short course to the 7,074-yard, par 72 championship layout, each hole provides its own identity, completely immersing the golfing public into nature. For more information, call (847) 740-4890 or visit
