JULY 7, 2021
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif.– Mission Hills Country Club announced today it will continue its tradition and commitment of giving back and making an impact in the Coachella Valley community by hosting the 2021 Charity Classic Golf Tournament, an annual philanthropic open-house event in Rancho Mirage, CA, November 19-20, 2021.
This year, the 2021 Charity Classic will partner with Links to Freedom (L2F), the only charity in the country using golf as a therapy tool toward rehabilitating America’s heroes, to raise tuition for injured service members and disabled veterans to enroll in the program. “Two great sponsors . . . have really leaned forward in the foxhole to support our injured service members and disabled veterans,” said Links to Freedom President Rob Koon, a retired Air Force officer. “Our mission makes a difference, and our hosts are greatly impacting our ability to make that difference!”
Additionally, funds will also be raised to benefit ClubCorp’s Employee Partner Care Foundation (E.P.C.F.), a fund created to help ClubCorp’s employees and their families by providing financial assistance in times of crisis. In 2020, 672 Club and ClubCorp employees received over $1.1 million in grants to help them and their families through the many challenges of the past year. To date, the foundation has helped nearly 4,100+ employees by granting over $7.5 million.
Since its inception in 2007, ClubCorp Charity Classic events have raised more than $28 million to support its Signature Charity Partners’ vital work, benefiting important charities in our communities. Last year, the popular Charity Classic events hosted at ClubCorp clubs across the nation collectively raised $1.4 million for the E.P.C.F. and a variety of charities throughout the U.S. via hundreds of events across the country. Here at Mission Hills, the Charity Classic combined forces with the Scholars Foundation Tournament to raise nearly $113,700 and brought together over 200 area participants. This year our goal is to raise $200,000.
“Opening our club to the community for this event makes a positive impact on the lives of so many. We are so proud to once again host our Charity Classic,” said Michael Walker, General Manager at Mission Hills Country Club. “During our Charity Classic event, our members and employees work together with sponsors to show Mission Hills’ commitment to enriching lives in the communities we support.”
With this year’s registration and details now available, Mission Hills Country Club encourages members of the community to sign up now. This two-day event will feature an invitation-only chairman’s reception, golf tournament, silent auction, live auction and gala reception. Cost is $1,000 per team of four golfers and includes one ticket to the Charity Gala Reception per team member, and $125 for the Charity Gala Reception if not playing golf. Various sponsorship opportunities are also available ranging from $100 to $20,000. To participate, please visit the Mission Hills Charity Classic website or call the club at 760.324.9400.
