LAKE FOREST, IL – Deerpath Golf Course announced today it will host a Putting Challenge on September 10th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on The Lawn putting and chipping green. This event serves as a qualifier for the inaugural PopStroke National Putting Championship scheduled for this October at the PopStroke Sarasota, Florida, location.

The first and second-place winners of the Deerpath competition automatically earn entry into two championship events – a Stroke Play Individual competition and a two-person Team Championship to compete for over $100,000 in total prize money. Competitors can register for the Putting Challenge now at the Deerpath Golf Course website.

“With the addition of The Lawn to our practice facility, we have the opportunity to host fun, friendly competitions like this Putting Challenge,” said Deerpath Golf Course General Manager Patrick O’Donoghue. “On behalf of the team at Deerpath and KemperSports, we are excited to welcome all golfers to enjoy a fun putting competition and experience all that The Lawn has to offer.”

The Lawn opened on July 6th, 2022. It covers more than 30,000 square feet, consisting of a world-class bentgrass putting and chipping experience providing practice options for both novice and avid players alike. The Lawn’s impressive footprint offers an 18-hole putting course and three-hole chipping course and is surrounded by a 15-foot chipping fairway surface and synthetic practice tee stations. Deerpath Golf Course is one of the only municipally owned facilities to feature such a world-class amenity, making the course a destination for golfers across the Chicagoland area and beyond.

Each round will cost $10, with golfers welcome to take on the course as many times as they wish. Tee times are not required, and players will que in line based on their arrival time.
