PACIFIC PALISADES, CA (FEBRUARY 26, 2024) –  The Southern California PGA Foundation was hosted by the historic Riviera Country Club for the 8th Annual SCPGA Foundation Classic Pro-Am while raising over $150,000 for the SCPGA Foundation’s College Scholarship and PGA HOPE programming. Since its inception, the SCPGA Foundation has awarded over $1 million in scholarships and supported thousands of veterans through PGA HOPE.

Playing in a stableford format, a total of 22 teams made up of one PGA Professional and three amateurs from all over the country participated in this year’s event.

“We are so grateful to all the teams here today to participate and raise money for all the great programs that our foundation does for Junior Golf, our veterans through PGA HOPE, and our scholarship/grant programs,” said Southern California PGA’s Executive Director, Nikki Gatch, PGA.

The team from Whispering Pines Golf Club, led by PGA Professional Chris Rowe, accumulated 98 points to claim the victory over the 22-team field.

Congratulations to Michael Block, PGA, of Arroyo Trabuco, and Raj Samra, PGA, of Wilshire Country Club, who tied for low PGA Professional with a 1-over-par 72, or 35 stableford points.

Anna Rawson, is going home with an all-expenses paid trip to Portugal for her victory in the closest-to-the-hole competition presented by Garmany Golf on hole 4.
