About this event
The road to Pebble Beach starts at Champions Golf Club on September 16, 2019! The National Kidney Foundation Konica Minolta Golf Classic is the nation's Premier Amateur Golf Event for Charity. Each year thousands of golfers from across the country participate in over 30 events across the U.S. for the exciting competition and the chance to earn an invitation to the National Finals at Pebble Beach—while raising over $3.5 million for the NKF. Top 3 finishing teams (Gross and Handicap Index Divisions combined) are invited to compete in the National Finals held at the famed Pebble Beach Resorts in January 2020.
Champions Golf Club was founded by Jack Burke, Jr. and the late Jimmy Demaret in 1957. From its origin, Champions has consistently carved its place in golf history hosting such prestigious events as the Ryder Cup Matches in 1967, the United States Open in 1969 and the Champions International, a PGA tour event. The Cypress Creek course was designed by Ralph Plummer and opened for play in 1959. With over 70,000 trees, wide fairways and enormous greens, it remains one of America's premier tournament sites. By joining us at this year's tournament, you will help to support the lifesaving programs and services of the National Kidney Foundation.
