As we bid farewell to a wonderful 23 year partnership with Toshiba, this tournament is entering a new era with Hoag as title sponsor and we are thrilled to see the Hoag Classic come to life.
The first highly anticipated milestone is the unveiling of the new Hoag Classic website. With less than eight months until the next tournament, this is the perfect time to launch our new site for prospective sponsors and volunteers to learn more about participating in the only PGA TOUR sanctioned event in Orange County.
Although this will be Hoag’s first year as title sponsor, the nationally trusted health care leader has a long history with this event. The 2019 tournament will mark Hoag’s 21st year as host, manager and beneficiary. Under Hoag’s auspices, the tournament has become the most philanthropic event in PGA TOUR Champions history. In 2000, the then titled Toshiba Classic was the first ever PGA TOUR Champions event to surpass $1,000,000 in donations. The tournament continues to generate more than $1,000,000 for charity annually, totaling over $20 million in 20 years.
Stay tuned for the next exciting announcement from the Hoag Classic, including 2019 volunteer registration opening this summer.
