37th Annual Walker Family Golf Championship

Saturday, August 24th, 2024
King's Grant Golf & Country Club

Since 1986, the Fayetteville Rotary has hosted the annual Walker Family Golf Classic, a local tradition that raises funds for annual service projects including the annual Fayetteville Christmas Parade, leadership development for local high school students, support of local organizations such as Rick's Place and Better Health of Cumberland County.   The tournament originated as the Fayetteville Rotary Club Father-Son-Daughter Golf Championship and was changed in 2015 to a family tournament and "The Walker Classic" in honor of our dear friend and former Club President, Mr. Joe Walker.

Tournament sponsorships benefit organizations through advertising and complimentary tournament entries.  Framed Pin Flags with logo are also awarded to Double Eagle and Champion Sponsors.  Watch for sponsorship info coming soon.

If you would like to be a sponsor of this year's tournament, please email or contact a member of the Fayetteville Rotary Club.

Tournament entries are open to all amateur golfers who are legal residents of Cumberland County.  Non-residents of Cumberland County

are eligible provided the other team member qualifies.
