Mistwood Golf Club Partners with Vienna Beef to Take Back World Hot Dog Record on Independence Day

July 4: Mistwood Golf Club Will Line Up 2000+ Hot Dogs From Tee to Green

(Chicago, IL) - Mistwood Golf Club, one of the nation’s premiere public courses located in Chicago, has hosted a hyper-patriotic “Stars & Stripes” tournament on the 4th of July for 20 years. The event features costumed golfers, fireworks and otherwise zany entertainment on most holes all in the spirit of celebration for America’s birthday.  This year, however, the course management will up the ante by seeking to reclaim a Guinness Book of World Records feat: the longest continuous line of cooked hot dogs, a record which currently stands at 1157 feet and is held by Nakakyushu Kubota of Japan.

“When we learned that there was an official world record for lining up hot dogs, our first thought was, “Wow, that’s awesome, of course there should be a record for that human achievement,” said Jim Koklas, Food & Beverage Director at Mistwood Golf Club. “There are few things more American than the hot dog, and we decided it is time to bring this record home. As a nation founded on ingenuity and industriousness, we’re also very good at lining things up.  On behalf of all Americans we are going to reclaim this title on July 4th, guaranteed.”

Mistwood will partner with Vienna Beef on the world record attempt as the Chicago-based company celebrates its 125th anniversary and the kick-off to national hot dog month (July).

The World Record attempt is open to the public and is free to attend. Staff and volunteers will begin lining-up hot dogs on tables that stretch from tee to the green on the 3rd hole, a spectacular par 5 measuring over 550 yards at the award-winning course. The event will also feature live entertainment and American-themed activities. Additionally, as the world record specifies that the hot dogs must be cooked and consumable, guests at the event will have a chance to indulge in the history-making moment.

July 4th -- Approximately 2PM
Mistwood Golf Club, 1700 W. Renwick Road, Romeoville, IL 60446
