Naperville Park District submission

Naperbrook and Springbrook golf courses will sponsor the 2012 Turkey Shoot golf tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.

Registration begins Nov. 10; last year's event sold out with a record 210 participants.

In addition to the challenge of playing golf in unpredictable November weather, Turkey Shoot golfers may choose to donate nonperishable food and/or their free turkey (or equivalent cash) to Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry for the 2012 Thanksgiving food drive. In 2011, Turkey Shoot donations totaled $860 and generated 556 lbs. of food.

Interested golfers may register as a fivesome, as a smaller group, or as a single. Singles and smaller groups will be paired as fivesomes for the nine-hole tournament.

Registrations will be taken in person (recommended) or by phone at Springbrook Golf Course at 2220 W. 83rd St., Naperville, and at Naperbrook Golf Course, 22204 W. 111th St. in Plainfield. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, and is on a first-come, first-served basis until all spots are filled at both courses.
