The Hoag Classic is one of the most prestigious events on the PGA TOUR Champions. It hosts the finest field of professional golfers all year, is played at one of the most scenic golf courses and has donated record earnings for charity.
Known as the most philanthropic tournament on the PGA TOUR Champions, this event is highly regarded for its profound history of giving. In 2000, it became the first event to raise $1,000,000 for charity – which went unmatched for four years. We set the standard that has since become the model for every TOUR event.
For 20 years, the tournament has raised over $20,000,000 which directly aided our community in Southern California. Proceeds have benefitted many of Hoag’s institutes including the Hoag Cancer Foundation, the Sue & Bill Gross Women’s Pavilion, Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart and Vascular Institute, and Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center. In addition to Hoag, tournament proceeds have also been contributed to more than 50 local charities.
Hoag Classic’s charitable initiatives include support of local military families and charities and support of Hoag Employees trying to continue their education. To learn more about each of these initiates, please continue reading below.
