After a four-year hiatus, the Nordic Law Club’s popular Lutefisk Open will resume on Monday, Aug. 22, at Mission Hills Country Club in Northbrook with a shotgun start at noon. The benefit will include 18 holes of golf, contests and prizes, a box lunch and plated dinner.
Named for a Scandinavian food staple, the outing will help fund scholarships for meritorious international law students whose ancestry can be traced to any of the 89 countries that were visited by Viking-era Norsemen a millennium ago.
Lutefisk is a form of dried codfish that Vikings could use as paddles, tools, weapons and, of course, sustenance during their long voyages of exploration.
The cost of an individual ticket for the complete Lutefisk Open is $155 per person, or $65 for only the dinner. Opportunities for hole sponsorships and other scholarship contributions are available. Call Perry J. Gulbrandsen at (847) 219-3613 for details.
Payments should be mailed by Aug. 15 to Nordic Law Club treasurer David Clark at Canalia & Clark, Suite C, 419 Ridge Road, Munster, IN 46321. Clark may be contacted at (219) 836-0008.
