Kingswood Golf Classic

September 11, 2020

Join us for our 24th Annual Kingswood Golf Classic. It’s a tournament of fun, friendly competition. It’s about bragging rights and creating future legacies. It’s about raising funds for Kingswood students by hitting the golf course with your favourite foursome.

As our biggest fundraising event of the year, the Kingswood Golf Classic’s purpose is to provide further financial aid and scholarships to Kingswood students – men and women being equipped to become servant leaders who will make a global impact for the Church and ultimately for Christ!

What’s the 2020 goal?  – 100 golfers (men & women) raising over $25,000 in scholarships for our students here at Kingswood University.
