We rounded the corner on 22 years producing what most feel is the best amateaur charity golf tournament in the Seattle area. The Detlef Golf Classic format is a 5-person scramble: 4 players and a celebrity. The celebrity is a random draw.
With prizes and entertainment on every hole, if you only golf in one Seattle tournament this year, we hope it was the Detlef Schrempf Celebrity Golf Classic.
This year, the tournament was the Monday after the U.S. Open at TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge. Our Gala & Auction followed the tournament with country great, Darius Rucker and his band as the evenings special guest performer.
2015 Golf Classic Details:
Location: TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge

The inaugural Detlef Schrempf Celebrity Golf Classic was in 1994 - the vision of Eastside Chrysler Jeep and Sports Radio KJR AM, partnering to raise money for Boyer Children’s Clinic.
At that time, Detlef and Mari Schrempf were making their way back to the Pacific Northwest through the Seattle Sonics, and Detlef joined the Classic as the celebrity host.
In 2001, Audi and Volkswagen Dealers of the Puget Sound became the title sponsor and in 2006 Western Washington Toyota Dealers stepped up to the tee.
2011 would be the year Michael’s Chevrolet of Issaquah and Michael’s Toyota of Bellevue would marquee the tournament, as well as their commitment to 2012.
Celebrities from across the nation, from Hollywood and the athletic arena, have participated in the Golf Classic. Notables include David Robinson, Bob Cousy, Kevin Calabro, Brent Barry, Sam Perkins, Brock and Damon Huard, Desmond Mason, Todd MacCulloch, Brian Doyle Murray, Joel Murray, Ryan Stiles, Christopher McDonald, Patrick Warburton, Hootie and the Blowfish and a host of other highly entertaining hackers!
Thank you 2015 Golf Classic Sponsors!
