18th annual Golf Classic features MLB legend and PGA Tour pros

Any annual event strives to top itself each year. On Oct. 20, the Foundation for Palm Beach State College did just that.  The 2023 Golf Classic elevated the player experience with tremendous vision, a stellar presentation, and hands-on interaction, creating a memorable morning before play began at PGA National – all to benefit scholarships for students.

Thank you to all who volunteered, helping us to deliver an exceptional experience! Special thanks and appreciation to Dr. Van Williams, Ken Libutti and Kirk Stetson for their fabulous partnership in delivering players and more for the event. Thank you to the entire facilities crew for their essential help and to Dustan Drebing and Troy Calvert for their IT expertise and dedication prior to and throughout the day!

The Foundation took great pride in creating an experience that prompted a PGA National executive to say, “In 13 years here, I’ve never seen anything like this.” We humbly take that compliment as we delivered an extraordinary experience with:

  • Ceremonial first drive by Julie Kintz, PBSC alum
  • A day on the Jack Nicklaus designed Champion Course
  • Toptracer Technology as used for Professional Golf Tournaments
