Birch Golf Classic Trailblazers

What is a Trailblazer?


The Birch Golf Classic highlights Community Trailblazers in business, law enforcement, social services, professional athletes, education and local celebrities. The tournament is a diverse melting pot of community and business joining together to enjoy a great day together and spread word / raise money for non-profits doing tireless and incredible work along the I-5 corridor. 

What do Trailblazers do in the Birch Golf Classic?


The Trailblazer is the 5th person that joins each 4-person golf team to create a 5-person scramble. 

In addition the Trailblazer is recognized for the good work they do in the community. Prior to the event, Trailblazers and Sponsors are invited to attend a private celebratory dinner the evening before the tournament.

Teams raise funds prior to the tournament via the Teams Page, Trailblazers are paired with unique/hard-to-obtain prizes. On Aug. 31st, fundraising ends at 12pm. Teams then select their Trailblazer (5th golfer of their team) + Prize Combo in order of funds raised.
