Since its inception in 1994, The Archbold Classic Golf Tournament has raised over $6 million in support of the Archbold Scholarship Program. Scholarships are awarded to Archbold employees and local deserving students to provide important financial support while they pursue degrees in nursing or other health care related fields.
From the beginning, the factor that has made the Archbold Classic unique among many other charity golf tournaments has been the recruitment of professional golfers from the PGA, Seniors and Korn Ferry tours to play alongside our amateur players. “Many of the pros who have played in the Archbold Classic have gone on to great PGA careers,” said Don Demsher, tournament director. “These include Bubba Watson, Jerry Pate, Sonny Skinner, Jason Dufner, Joe Durant, Chris DeMarco, Ben Bates and Kenny Knox, to name a few. All of the pros enjoy coming to Thomasville and travel many miles to raise funds for a good cause,” Demsher added.
Sponsorships from businesses and individuals are what drive the fundraising success of the Archbold Classic. This year’s Archbold Classic will be held on Monday, November 8th, 2021. We hope to see you there!
