2019 Pine Rest Golf Classic is September 23
10th Annual – A Special Course for a Special Cause
In 2010, then Pine Rest Foundation Board President, Carol Van Andel suggested the Pine Rest Foundation take a new approach to its annual golf outing. What if, she wondered, we find a course that matches the exceptional care experience Pine Rest provides? With that, the idea of a ‘Special Course for a Special Cause’ was born. That first year the course chosen was the breathtaking Arcadia Bluffs. Since then the Golf Classic has been held at a some of the premier golf experiences in Michigan; including Harbor Shores, Lost Dunes, Point O’ Woods, and Forest Dunes to name a few.
The year 2010 was also an important milestone for Pine Rest: celebrating our 100th anniversary. This year marks an important milestone as well. It is the 10th Annual Golf Classic, once again honoring the theme a ‘Special Course for a Special Cause’. On September 23, 2019 Pine Rest will return to Arcadia Bluffs for the 2019 Pine Rest Foundation Golf Classic. We are honored to recognize Merrill Lynch as our Title Sponsor for all 10 Golf Classic.
The Golf Classic proceeds directly support Pine Rest’s Patient Assistance Fund (PAF), which provides access to mental health treatment for individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. Last year, over 54,000 individuals sought care at Pine Rest. For many, treatment would not have been possible without the Patient Assistance Fund.
