The NKF Golf Classic is the premier amateur golf event for charity with nearly 35 events held throughout the country each year, raising $3.5 million for the National Kidney Foundation. The top finishing teams at each local tournament are invited to compete in the NKF Golf Classic National Finals at the Pebble Beach Resorts on January 18 through the 21st, 2018 where teams play a 54-hole tournament on the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Links at Spanish Bay – one of the only events of its kind where you can win locally and move on to compete for a national title at the Pebble Beach Resorts.
At Pebble Beach, there is an opening reception, gala and auction, Champions Celebration, PING Skills Challenge and a National Finals Gift Package provided by National Sponsors. Since 1987, more than 290,000 golfers have teed off to help fight kidney disease, raising more than $90 million for the cause at the National Kidney Foundation Golf Classic events.
The Dallas event benefited The National Kidney Foundation, Inc. (NKF), the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.
