Park district golf course to hold May fitting day, Mother’s Day special and family golf night
“Being a park district golf course, we are working hard to get our community and other surrounding communities out to the course to help grow the wonderful game of golf,” White Pines Golf Club PGA Manager Andrew Godfrey says. To that end, the course is offering several special events in the month of May for golfers of many different levels at its facility located at 500 W. Jefferson St. in Bensenville.
The golf club will host the first of several Callaway Fitting Days this summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the club’s driving range. According to the Callaway website, custom fitting can be one of the most important aspects to improve one’s golf game.
“These demo days give people of all skill levels the chance to try the newest and best equipment on the market and help upgrade their current set,” explains Godfrey. “You’ll leave the fitting feeling confident with equipment that’s customized to your game.”

Then, the club gives thanks to area moms with its Mother’s Day special—all females get to golf for free all day long on Sunday, May 8. Females of any age may enjoy a relaxing day of golf at White Pines by reserving their tee time in advance on the golf course website. There is a limit of 18 holes. Godfrey feels the special “is a great way to grow the game with women and families, especially in our community.”
Finally, it will be fun for all ages when the club hosts its first family golf night of the summer beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday, May 15. Bring the whole family out for an evening of golf; the tees have been moved up and players can play at their own pace while enjoying a $3 meal deal that includes a hot dog, chips and drink.
“We started family days last year and are excited to offer them once a month for the entire summer this year,” Godfrey explains. “It’s a great opportunity for everyone in a family—no matter the skill level—to come out and enjoy time on the golf course without feeling rushed or pressured by the golfers behind them.”
Fees are just $5 for juniors 17 and under and $10 for adults. Carts are $10 per cart for players and $10 per non-playing rider. For more information, visit WhitePinesGolf.com/event/family-golf-nights.
