The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County 36th Annual Golf for Kids Jim Griggs Tournament is SOLD OUT!

Join us for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County 36th Annual Golf for Kids Jim Griggs Tournament!

Founded by Jim Griggs in 1988, and renamed in his memory in 2019, the Golf for Kids tournament has played a vital role in supporting the success of thousands of youth in Monterey County.

You are invited to take advantage of this great tradition – it is an excellent opportunity to host clients, colleagues and friends for a world-class round of golf, socialize with professional golfers and receive prominent recognition as a sponsor of this prestigious tournament.

Your participation provides much-needed scholarship funds for deserving teens through the Davis Love III Family Scholarship Fund, which has awarded to over 70 Club members. These life changing scholarships would not be possible without the generous support and commitment of our sponsors, players, and pros.

Please join us in helping children and teens further their education and claim their future.

Thank you for supporting our 32nd Annual Golf for Kids Jim Griggs Pro-Am Tournament!

Since 1988, Golf for Kids has brought together friends and pros from all around the country to celebrate the game of golf in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County. This year, you helped us raise over $380,000 to support great futures for children and teens in our community. We extend a special thanks to Union Bank for their $10,000 matching gift. Thanks to their generous support, we were able to raise over $43,000 specifically for College & Career Readiness Programming!

Because of your generosity, we awarded $35,000 in Davis Love III Family Scholarships to Seven Teen Members to help them as they further their education.

Again, thank you for supporting the youth of Monterey County!
