The Annual Zurich Golf Classic
A PGA Tour Event Benefiting Our Friends, the Fore!Kids Foundation
The Fore!Kids Foundation is an incredible organization that is a dear friend to First Tee and to many other non-profits and charities in the New Orleans area. Since 1958, they have distributed over $40 million to children’s service organizations. At the core of their fundraising is the annual Zurich Golf Classic, a Two Man format PGA event.
In most years, First Tee participants are invited out to the event to caddy the Pro-Am practice round. Selected older students also join as Junior Course Reporters, getting real-world experience interviewing players and event organizers from the Media Tent.
2020’s event was canceled, but the tour is back in town in 2021!
