What is the Chili Open?
With the generous support of area businesses, the Chili Open Golf Classic was founded by The Rotary Club of Strongsville in 1992. Since then The Classic has raised over $2 million for various charities locally, nationally and internationally.
This FUN-RAISER has been a February tradition for over 30 years in Northeastern Ohio, drawing nearly 1,000 golfers who tee off into blasts of frigid air, putt across frosty greens and warm up in an event hall full of hot food, good drink and sizzling activities.

How would you Describe Chili Open
What better way to both have FUN playin – in a unique way – and assist those less fortunate than we.
It’s non stop entertainment, from the exciting auction to the purchasing of beads for the wheelbarrow full of booze. There are simulated golf contests inside as well as golf outside on our 9 hole golf course. 50/50 raffles each hour and the amazing food of chili, sausage, pizza and wings!
It’s a charity auction with celebrities, food and beer with the bonus option of hitting a few golf balls in Ohio in February.
Great time and lots of fun. Plus you feel good because it’s all going to charity!
Hitting Balls in the snow is just a small part of the chili open. The fabulous food and drink as well as the excitement of the auctions makes the event spectacular. It’s a great way to spend a day with friends!
It’s a party with all the food you can eat and all the beer you can drink. With the bonus of being able to play golf outdoors at the Berea Fairgrounds in February.
It’s not a chili competition but we have chili. You can golf on the frigid grounds or just chill with your friends inside and enjoy the food and beverages. A lot of fun things are going on – Celebrity auctioneers, fantastic auction items, 50/50 raffles, win a wheelbarrow filled with top shelf liquor. You’ll have a chillin’ goodtime!
“A day of drinking, laughs and good times… ALL FOR A GOOD CAUSE!”
I think I’ve described it as an Oktoberfest beer hall with long tables, food and beer, a live auction and 50/50 and other games going on, and some people play golf outside
My Favorite Part of the Chili Open is…
The live auction!
Raffles and Wheel barrels of Booze!
Watching the auction with our celebrity auctioneers. It’s a great time every year!
Eating, drinking, attempting to play golf in the snow and ice of a typical northeast Ohio Winter
The Celebrity auctions and 50/50 events are a lot of fun for everyone. Lots of ways to win some great things and money!
Something that Surprised me about the Chili Open was…
The amount of people that attend and the size of the cash prizes!
The amount of people that attend and how smooth everything runs during the event!
That our meats are cooked on the premises and our cooks arrive at 4am! This past year I was also surprised to see the simulated golf!
The number of seemingly fellow crazies as I. I mean playing golf in the snow! But not surprised that so many reach out to assist those less fortunate than we.
The number of people there and the value for the money the attendees get.
