Get Your Golf Fix This Summer

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.
