The 27th Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open will take place Monday, July 25th and Tuesday, July 26th 2022 at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville.
The Illinois Women’s Open was the vision of the late Phil Kosin, who believed that Illinois needed a women’s state championship. Kosin’s passion for golf radiated throughout the pages of his Chicagoland Golf newspaper, on his blog, and over radio waves as host of a radio show on 670 The Score. Kosin was passionate about the game and dedicated himself towards the tournament for 15 years.
