The 19th Annual Celebrity Championship was held last month at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with Marshall Faulk – Super Bowl Champion (St. Louis Rams, Super Bowl XXXIV), NFL Hall of Famer and Division 1 football standout – serving as the host.
Members and the general public were encouraged to come out and watch. The 2017 Celebrity Championship included a two-day Celebrity-Amateur tournament, nightly parties, and a 36-hole, celebrity-only competition. The competition brought over 30 of the best celebrity golfers in the world together to participate in a Celeb-Am Tournament and compete in a celebrity-only competition for a cash purse and the coveted Celebrity Championship trophy.
Celebrities included former NFL players Terrell Davis and Jerry Rice, professional golfer and former MLB pitcher Rick Rhoden, actors Brian Baumgartner (The Office) and Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle), former NFL player and current CBS sports analyst Marcus Allen, former MLB player Jermaine Dye and former professional soccer player Landon Donovan.
Proceeds from the Celebrity-Amateur, won by former NFL placekicker Josh Scobee, will be donated to The Junior Seau Foundation and The Marshall Faulk Foundation.
