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. With much appreciation, we thank Michael's Toyota for their support as title sponsor of the 2016 Classic.
Celebrities from across the nation, from Hollywood and the athletic arena, have participated in the Golf Classic. Notables include Darius Rucker, 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!
