In Memory of Jim Griggs: Golf for Kids continues to shape great futures

Inspired to support children in Monterey County, Jim Griggs founded the Golf for Kids Pro-Am Tournament in 1988 to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County. Since then the tournament has raised over $4.5 million, including $600,000 in college scholarship funds for deserving Club teens. Please join us to honor Jim’s vision of great futures for our youth at the 31st annual Golf for Kids Tournament on February 4th at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

“It has been my honor to support Golf for Kids through my long-time relationship with the Griggs family. This special partnership continues to bring educational opportunities to kids who need it most.” – Davis Love III, 2017 World Golf Hall of Fame
