Birch Golf Classic
Thursday, September 9th!
Bellingham Golf & Country Club
9:30a Shotgun Start
We’re excited to announce that the next 3 years of Birch Golf Classic proceeds will go to: Whatcom Dream (Transitioning from poverty with help of financial literacy), BEST (Businesses Ending Slavery & Trafficking) and REST (Real Escape from the Sex Trade) with our goal of raising 100k annually for each organization. The goal of the Birch Golf Classic is to earn revenue for and to shine a light on organizations along the I-5 corridor who are doing amazing work helping our most vulnerable transition off the streets and onto better pathways.
As an on-going sold-out event we will continue to hold to 30 teams for pace-of-play, a 9:30a Shotgun start. A silver lining of covid restrictions last year was discovering how great it was to have food trucks + beverage stations throughout the course– which we’ll be doing again this year. In addition the Longest Drive Competition (serious heavy hitters & always entertaining), tournament winners and announcements will immediately follow the tournament at the 1st Tee Box at the 19th Hole Celebration.
What your team raises in funds is how you are supporting the organizations and also puts you in selection position for Community Trailblazer + Team Prize. The Community Trailblazers are the 5th golfer for each team and are comprised of public servants, volunteers, business owners, CEO’s, professional athletes, law enforcement, academic community, coaches… all with links to the NW community and many that are traveling to Bellingham just for this event.
Team Prizes are unique and or difficult to obtain items and experiences including: Celebrity accompanied events, private jet to exclusive wineries, high-end game day experiences, events at private island residences, Alaska Airline Tickets, incredible wine and more.
