2018 Midwest Open

Midwest Open

The Premier Event of the Summer

July 20th - July 22nd


Experience The Ultimate Golf Destination with the Ultimate Tournament Experience.

Our staff has been working hard to make this year's Midwest Open the best one yet! Previous venue hosts have included Blackwolf Run, Cog Hill, and TPC Deere Run.  We are excited to bring Eagle Ridge Resort into the mix. Four beautifully maintained championship golf courses set Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa as the premier golf destination in Northern Illinois.

The 9th Annual Midwest Open will be contested on the South and General courses. This event will host players from all across the country and has sold out every year since it was first started!  More details will be announced in the coming months, be sure to follow our Facebook page (click on the logo below).
