Prep summer golf league comes to Edgewood

High school golf

MCNABB — The fall prep golf season is still more than two months away, but some area high schoolers are getting their swings in already.

The second night for the Illinois Valley High School Summer Golf League brought 24 players to Edgewood Park Golf Club in McNabb last week. Putnam County’s own Ian Roach (36) and Ali Cuicci (47) were the leading scorers playing on their home course.

The league will hit several courses around the Illinois Valley with upcoming stops at Senica’s Deer Park Golf Club in Oglesby (June 26), Wyaton Hills Golf Course in Prince­ton (July 3), Mendota Golf Club (July 11), Pine Hills Golf Club in Ottawa (July 17) and Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Club in LaSalle (July 24).

Hall High School coach Mason Kimberley, a former Princeton High School golfer, started the league in 2017 to give area players a chance to keep their game fine-tuned throughout the summer, playing competitive rounds at the area’s best courses at an affordable rate.

“As a high school golf coach, I noticed there wasn’t a lot of opportunity for high school kids to get competitive exposure during the summer, at least locally,” Kimberley said. “It’s a great way for high school golfers to get to know the competition in the area and prepare themselves for the fall season.”

League fee of $70 includes green fees for all courses, trophies and prizes, and a season-ending pizza party.

Interested golfers may contact Kimberley at 815-303-6003 or masonkimberley1@gmail.com.
