Naperville, Ill. (August 8, 2023) – Naperville Country Club will host the 25th Annual Swing for Scholars Golf Tournament, which benefits the Manny and Pat Pulido Sánchez Foundation, August 14th from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Longtime Naperville Country Club members Manny and Pat Pulido Sánchez first brought the tournament to the club in 2019 to raise funds for scholarships for disadvantaged youth, specifically first-generation Americans of Hispanic descent for college, trade school, private high schools and other educational needs.

“Naperville Country Club is thrilled to welcome back the Swing for Scholars tournament, one of our favorite traditions,” said Naperville Country Club General Manager Brad McMillan. “We look forward to welcoming golfers, corporate supporters and scholarship recipients to the club for a great day of fundraising and comradery.”

The Swing for Scholars tournament includes breakfast, lunch, a golf clinic, a cocktail hour with live auction and an awards presentation. Registration includes golf accessories provided by corporate supporters of the scholarship and Chicago Scholars. Scholarship recipients will attend the clinic and reception and give acceptance speeches during the awards program.

Swing for Scholars is an annual golf tournament that supports low-income students in the Chicago Scholars program. Since 2019, the tournament has benefitted the Manny & Pat Pulido Sánchez Foundation, which provides eligible students with a four-year scholarship of $5,000 per year, totaling $20,000.

About Naperville Country Club
Naperville Country Club is a private, member-owned club, managed by Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon. In addition to award-winning golf, Naperville Country Club provides a full array of dining, social and special event programming for the entire family.

Naperville Country Club continues to be a social hub for the community, providing a place where members can connect with others, enjoy family-friendly activities and events, while experiencing a variety of club amenities. In 1921, the club featured a 9-hole golf course with sand greens. Shortly after opening, golf course architect Tom Bendelow was engaged to design and build an 18-hole golf course on the 124-acre property. Bendelow’s original layout remained mostly intact until 2006 when architect Steve Forrest of Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest & Associates was commissioned to complete a major course renovation. Emphasis was placed on adding length to the golf course, improving shot values and developing new green complexes. The new Steve Forrest-designed course debuted in July 2007 and winds its way through rolling terrain, mature trees and ponds. The course has earned several national honors, including being named Golf Inc. magazine’s 2009 “Renovation of the Year” for private clubs. For more information on Naperville Country Club, visit
