Check out our special programs
They’re special to us, and we hope they’re special to you.

Like you, we have a few “pet projects” here at The Village Links of Glen Ellyn.

Along with the programs you’ll find links to below, we are particularly proud of our efforts to build and grow our Junior program, since this is the future of the game.

Please take a look at some of our special programs.

Legends of the Links

In 1992, the Glen Ellyn Recreation Commission created a program to honor individuals who had made unique contributions to the Village Links of Glen Ellyn. This program was titled "Legends of the Links". Ed Posh was the inaugural "legend". Ed was inducted into the "Legends of the Links" in 1992, on the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the golf course.

Since then, several others have been recognized for their role in the history of the Village Links. Each member of the "Legends of the Links" has a plaque that hangs in the Village Links clubhouse. The list of Legends includes:

Ed Posh - 1992
Lee Hesterman - 1994
George Winchell - 1995
David Gill - 1995
Bill Galligan - 1995
Bob Becker - 1995
Keith Nicolls - 1995
Ted Sokolis - 1995
Marge Faulkner - 1998
Dave Glod - 2002
Doug Pinns - 2002
Roger Warren - 2002

The Recreation Commission periodically adds new individuals to the "Legends of the Links". Letters of nomination should include the accomplishments that one feels merits consideration as a "Legend of the Links". Letters of nominations can be addressed to the Glen Ellyn Recreation Commission, 485 Winchell Way, Glen Ellyn, Illinois 60137.
