The American Cancer Society and the Windy City Golf Open Committee take community seriously.  As a public health organization, we are committed to the safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers, especially those with compromised immune systems and currently battling cancer. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and our goal is to respond in a way that best meets the health and safety needs of those who rely on us.  The Windy City Golf Open will be postponed to August 17, 2020.  However, please know that our response to this unique time will be fluid. We are constantly assessing our decisions and promise to update you with any changes.

About the Windy City Golf Open

Previously known as the William T. White Memorial Golf Tournament, the American Cancer Society Windy City Golf Open will celebrate its 39th anniversary in 2020 at North Shore Country Club in Glenview, IL.


Golfers are able to play their own ball at the recently renovated North Shore Country Club's golf course, one of the most prestigious country clubs in the Chicago area.

Golf Includes:

  • Caddies 

  • Carts

  • Access to the driving range, chipping/sand area and putting green (spaced 6ft apart)

  • Outdoor boxed Lunch

  • Outdoor cocktail reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres

  • Player gift

  • Opportunity to bid on our silent auction and participate in our raffle

We anticipate that we will sell out and have a full course of golfers, so please do not delay signing up your foursome.


In 1981, William T. White, Jr. initiated a community golf tournament to bring friends and family together to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society. The tournament was named in his memory after he lost his battle with leukemia in 1993 and remained so named through 2017.


After honoring longtime American Cancer Society volunteer Kathy Mignin in 2017, Bill and Susan White and the Executive Committee agreed to change the name of the event going forward to the American Cancer Society Windy City Golf Open to honor all of those currently fighting cancer and memorialize those that lost their battle.
