About The EVENT
The annual ALS golf tournament originated in 1983 by former Royals player and Baseball Hall of Famer George Brett. When the tournament began it was known as the George Brett Celebrity Golf Classic. This premier tournament was renamed in honor of the great Kansas City sports writer Joe McGuff in 2003, and has continued the tradition of an exciting event designed to entertain its guests while raising much-needed funds for research and care services.
To honor the original efforts of George and celebrate more than 30 years of the tournament, celebrity participation is once again a focus of the tournament. Each foursome will be assigned a celebrity or Midwest PGA pro as the fifth player. In addition, each player will receive: a gift bag of premium items; lunch; photo opportunities with celebrity golfers, including George Brett and Tom Watson; dinner; and a round of golf at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate.
