DOWNERS GROVE – The world's best golfers squared off on Sunday in the annual Masters tournament in Augusta, Ga. Halfway across the country in Downers Grove, the community's best putters put on a competition of their own.

The Downers Grove Public Library's annual mini golf adventure took over the library's space, where an 18-hole putting course was set up.

About 330 golfers attended the event, helping to raise about $5,000 for the library's foundation.

The event was funded by 25 generous business, organizational and individual sponsors

Proceeds helped the Downers Grove Public Library Foundation support the library.

Supplementing the community’s tax support, the foundation helps in the broad effort to provide abundant books and other material, special support for children’s reading, up-to-date technology and comfortable surroundings.

This year’s proceeds are likely to fund some special part of the library’s upcoming building renovation project, according to library director Rick Ashton.
