The Brotherhood is also the driving force and committee for the annual St. Basil of Ostrog Church Petrovdan Golf Outing. The golf tournament is an important church fundraising event, which is held annually on the Saturday following the Sts. Peter and Paul Feast Day. The tournament is open to all golfers of all ages and is played at the local Foss Park Golf Course. The golf outing is currently under the leadership of brotherhood member, Marko Vojcanin along with an honorary guest co-chairman. The past co-chairs include Luka Mirkovic, Big Ten Northwestern basketball player and scholar and more recently, Alex Maragos, Chicago NBC anchor.
The tournament begins with final registration and a great noontime cevapcici luncheon on the clubhouse patio featuring a live Serbian orchestra. Following opening prayer led by our priest, all our golfers start their engines and carts and golfers are off. The 15th hole features live music, snacks and refreshments. A beverage cart circulates the course to make sure golfers have what they need.
After the 18-hole round of golf, players check in their scorecards and head to the St. Basil of Ostrog Church social hall for an incredible all-you-can-eat dinner buffet. The dinner buffet features fresh off the pit roast lamb and pork and grilled cevapcici. The buffet also includes an array of appetizers, salads, sides, fresh fruit and desserts. This is definitely a tournament favorite that is open to guests as well. While this is a part of the golfers registration fee, guests can purchase dinner buffet tickets at the hall just before dinner. Live music is playing throughout dinner and into the night.
At the conclusion of dinner, several golf awards are presented for a variety of achievements from closest to the pin, best score, longest drive, best dressed, furthest traveled, etc.
This is a highly successful and acclaimed event enjoyed by golfers and guests. Join us!
