4th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic – Event RECAP


4th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic – Event RECAP

Presented by SAGA Foundation


A huge THANK YOU to our donors, supporters, and celebrities who helped to make our 4th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic the best one yet! 

Stanford Golf Course continues to be a destination course for this outstanding event which provides support to Positive Coaching Alliance so that we can ensure every child has a positive youth sports experience with a coach who inspires them to become the best version of themselves in the game and in life.  

Thank you to the SAGA Foundation for stepping up as our title sponsor for the event. We also greatly appreciate the support from cart, beverage, 19th hole, and lunch sponsors- Encore Capital Management, Palmer Electric, Cox, Castle, LLC, and Wealth Architects, respectively. Additional sponsors included PGA Tour Superstore and the Golden State Warriors. 

Thanks to every team sponsor for your support of this event. We hope you enjoyed the day at Stanford.


We were honored to have the support of longtime PCA partner, First Tee, at both the national and local levels. Our awesome youth golfers at hole #10, Camille Thai and Josh Jang are part of the First Tee of Silicon Valley organization. It’s so great to see our partnership at work. 

Our event host, Alex Smith shared some great insight into his NFL career, his golf game, and parenting and coaching his own kids now. It’s always so great to have athletes at the highest level share their perspective and connect their own lessons back to PCA.

Special thanks to our event host committee, David Bartoshuk, Chris Bryant, Larry Wong, and Geordie McKee for all of their time and support to ensure the event was a success! We couldn’t do it without you!
