State of play: Forest Preserve Golf puts safety first

Wednesday, May 20, 2020
Cook County Forest Preserve Foundation

Naturally, with the spring season reaching its peak greenness, every golfer wants to hit the links. Golf is still happening in the Preserves, with some restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic and statewide orders to maintain safe and healthy distances.

For the Foundation, golf plays a key role in our yearly events calendar. The Conservation Cup is our primary fundraiser—and it will go on this September at a slightly later date. We look forward to hosting friends and supporters for another fun day at George W. Dunne National in Oak Forest.

Even with the restrictions, Forest Preserve Golf management still wants players to enjoy Cook County public courses like Dunne. The new rules are designed to put players’ safety first. With a new date of Sept. 30 set for the Foundation’s ninth annual Conservation Cup, we spoke with Host Committee member Josh Geppi, who is also the general manager of George W. Dunne National, about the current status of Forest Preserve Golf.

“We have a really big golf course, and we’ve got plenty of space out here,” Geppi says to assure players that everyone can maintain a safe distance on the course.
