The Kingsbury Golf Classic provides the opportunity to get away from work, enjoy the splendors of autumn (and golf!) and win prizes, while knowing that you are helping to assist children who struggle with learning differences. All proceeds from the Golf Classic will benefit the Kingsbury Scholarship Fund.

If you'd rather watch others play golf, you can still make a donation and/or register to attend the luncheon that day.

Registration fee are as follows:
  • $45 for luncheon only
  • $130 per player
  • $500 per foursome
