2020 Fall Scramble Results at Springbrook Golf Course

Springbrook Golf Course held the annual Fall Scramble on Saturday, October 10, 2020 with a record 132 players participating.  The winning foursome included Bob Trine, Mike Herbert, Dave Lemaistre and Bob Falkman, with a score of 61.  Two teams tied for second place with a score of 62: the team of Chuck Millington, Phil Wierzbinski, Bill Parrilli and Dave Maxson and the team of Bryan Spaits, Greg Hawes, Bill Kerth and Rick Prohammer.

“The early fall weather was perfect for the tournament,” said Head Golf Professional Mike Lyzun. “We appreciated the support of tournament sponsors Belgio’s Catering and FBC Remodel.”

The Fall Scramble is the last of the regular season tournaments at Springbrook Golf Course. The next event planned for 2020 is the annual Turkey Shoot, held at both Springbrook and Naperbrook on November 21 and 22. A fun tradition, this five-person scramble is held in all kinds of weather, which in the past has included rain, cold and snow. All participants receive a turkey, and the group with the lowest score for the day will get the biggest birds. As part of the tradition of the Turkey Shoot, players who do not wish to receive a turkey may donate the value of the turkey to a local charitable organization. 

The Naperville Park District has selected Operation Support Our Troops—a Naperville-based organization—to be the beneficiary of donations from the 2020 Turkey Shoot event at Springbrook and Naperbrook Golf Courses. Participants may elect to donate the monetary equivalent of their prize turkey that will be forwarded on to this cause that supports “the morale and well-being of American forces by providing comfort, resources and education to them and their families.” 

Sponsors of the 2020 Turkey Shoot include Sharko’s BBQ, Belgio’s Catering and Jewel-Osco. Jewel-Osco is donating the prize turkeys.

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District’s Fee Assistance Program. The Naperville Parks Foundation supports the recreation needs and desires of the residents of Naperville – encouraging health and wellness, fitness, family time, and fun. The Foundation supports the mission of making recreation of all kinds accessible to everyone across the community, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
