18th Annual Golf Tournament


Join us for a day of golf at our tournament’s NEW location – Fox Chapel Golf Club, which features a recently restored Seth Raynor course. Your foursome will be paired with a celebrity for this scramble style tournament, and will include team and individual prizes for longest putt, longest drive and hole challenge.

Proceeds benefit the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum at the History Center.

When it comes to sports pride and sports history, Western Pennsylvania is like no other place in the world.

The Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum at the Senator John Heinz History Center celebrates the rich sports tradition of this region by telling a story that spans sporting events, eras, and skill levels. The Sports Museum takes visitors from the sandlot to the semi-pros, from the little leagues to the big leagues, and from the dreamers to the heroes of Western Pennsylvania sports.
