Shotgun starts begin at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Registration and sponsorship opportunities are available online at

“Sponsors and golfers tell us that in the short history of this event, the WWGH Golf Classic has become one of the best attended and most enjoyable events of its kind in our region,” says John Cress, executive director of the WWGH Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Wine Valley Golf Club and lots of golfers and sponsors in support of award-winning health care in the Walla Walla Valley.”

The Golf Classic schedule is full of great golf, excellent food and fun throughout the entire day. A sampling of events awaiting participants include an unlimited practice range, complimentary golfer’s massage, exciting contests and prizes, $50 Nike Bucks for the Nike Mobile Pro Shop, along with complimentary snacks and alcohol-free beverages.

Proceeds from the Golf Classic will benefit the Enhancing the Healing Environment project for comprehensive patient room renovations to improve the care atmosphere and aid patients in their recovery.

Patients have deeply appreciated the new rooms. “We know that continuing improvements in our patient rooms make positive contributions to overall satisfaction and outcomes,” says Cress. “More than half of the rooms on our Medical/Surgical Unit and been fully renovated and most have been expanded in size to better accommodate family, friends and caregivers. We are eager to complete this work and invite our generous community’s continuing support.”

Sponsors at every level will receive recognition on the course, at the Awards Dinner, and in the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin.
