About Golf Classic

The Teeing Up for Student Travel Golf Classic is a two-day fundraising event supporting the SYTA Youth Foundation, a 501c(3) charity that changes young lives through travel. Over 7,200 students and more than $1.3 million in scholarships and programs have been awarded through the support of donors and events like the Classic.

6 Ways to Participate


Whether you are an avid golfer, a beginner or testing your golf skills, everyone wins playing in the Scramble. If you have a regular twosome or foursome that you play with, bring them along. Fans are invited to cheer on the golfers and spend the day at the course or come over for the awards reception and luncheon.  Open registration includes breakfast at the course, unlimited beverage cart, specialty snacks and fun themed holes and prizes, followed by an awards reception and luncheon.
