This is the unofficial kick off to summer in Lake Forest and is one of the Friends of Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Foundation's largest fundraisers.
The Annual Golf Classic is one of the major fund-raisers for the Friends of Lake Forest Parks & Recreation. Proceeds from this event will go to the Deerpath Golf Course Renovation Project. This project hopes to raise $2.6 million in private funds which will be used to improve drainage, improve course restroom facilities, expand the driving range, create a new short game practice area, upgrade the cart fleet, and build a new cart barn.
Through tax-deductible donations and special events, including Festival & Fireworks, the Friends have provided substantial funding to beautify parks, make structural improvements, and expand recreational programming.
Open to the public - more info at www.friendslfpr.org.

Who is Fred Jackson?
The Classic was re-named the Fred Jackson Golf Classic in 2007 in honor of Fred’s 43 years of service to our Parks & Recreation Department, 38 of them as its Executive Director. Fred was also a founder of Friends and one of our proud Board members. And by the way, the Classic is an honorarium and not a memorial to Fred! In fact, we expect him to grace our fairways for many, many years to come!
