Dozens of golfers braved slushy conditions and temperatures in the mid-30s Saturday during the Chili Open at the Golf Center in Des Plaines. So that they could find their balls, golfers used color golf balls with ribbons attached as they played the snowy course.

Brian Panek, manager of golfing facilities, said 53 participants signed up for Saturday's event. Considering that it was minus 11 degrees outside Monday, he was happy to get that number of golfers, though it was fewer than participated last year.
