The Principal Charity Classic takes place at one of Des Moines’ premier golf clubs, the Wakonda Club.
As the weather warms up, let’s think ahead a few months—to golf, summer and sunshine. Here are a few local outings to put on your calendar.
Great Futures Golf Tournament: Hosted by the Boys and Girls Club of Central Iowa on June 14 at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club, this charity event will feature foursome shotgun-style gameplay (meaning each group starts on different holes). There are also fun hole contests, lunch and a tee gift package. Tee times are 7:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Donation packages vary in price.
Principal Charity Classic: If you want to watch some top-flight golf, the Principal Charity Classic will return June 1-6 at the Wakonda Club, featuring players on the PGA Tour Champions circuit. Ticket packages start at $20 if bought in advance. All funds will go toward local charities.
Annual Golf Outing: Ronald McDonald House of Central Iowa combines its annual fundraiser golf outing with networking, food and auctions. The event is on June 2 at the Beaver Creek Golf Club in Grimes.
