One of the hallmarks of the Illinois Open Series is our consistency from event to event. With each tournament being run the same as the last, players know what to expect when they decide to play in one of our events.

*** IOS #75 Dave Pitner Memorial is part of the WGE. All Women's divisions are on Saturday for this event only! ***

A note on amateur divison names: The IOS team feels that the traditional division names (Advanced/Intermediate/Recreational/Novice) can be misleading. We will instead refer to them as AM I, AM II, AM III, and AM IV. See the FAQ page for more info.
