Principal and Interest

One of our favorite philanthropic events tees off this week: the Principal Charity Classic June 6-11 at Wakonda Club. This is the 10th anniversary of the tournament on the PGA Champions Tour, and it has generated almost $10 million for Iowa children’s charities. Classic, indeed.

Local interest in big-time golf is high this year, with the summer framed between the Principal event in June and the Solheim Cup in August. Pro-Am rounds at Wakonda are June 7-8. Tournament play is June 9-11. A schedule of all tournament events is here, including a list of freebies (pedometers, bobbleheads, etc.) for the first few thousand fans who arrive each day of the tournament.
