Portland’s Annual Celebrity Coach-Am: It Just Keeps Getting Better!


Huge thanks to all of our sponsors this year

On Monday, August 30, 2021, 95 golfers gathered at Oswego Lake Country Club for the 6th Annual Positive Coaching Alliance Coach-Am Charity Golf Classic presented by JET Industries. It was a beautiful August day with absolutely perfect weather.  The course was in prime shape for hosting a fun scramble format tournament.

“Seeing the support of the local community year after year to come and play in this golf tournament has just been amazing! Portland is a sports city and the people here understand that while we play to win, we want to shape the culture of sports to be a positive and inclusive space for all kids to have a life-changing experience!  I am so proud that we have been able to hold this tournament for 6 straight years, raising over $250,000 to support Positive Coaching Alliance” - Benjamin Dudley, VP West Territory and Regional Director of the Pacific Northwest for PCA.
