Due to record flooding, the NKF Konica Minolta Golf Classic, the nation’s Premier Amateur Golf Event for Charity benefiting the National Kidney Foundation, has changed the date! The road to Pebble Beach now starts at Royal Oaks Country Club on Monday, October 29, 2018! The public is invited to register now!

NKF is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.

Co-chaired by Brandon Rowland (Ernst & Young) and Jen Anderson (Holmes Murphy), the tournament registration begins at 10:00 a.m. with  lunch and the practice facilities open. Shotgun starts at 12:00 p.m. Immediately following the tournament there will be cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, reception, dinner, awards presentation and auction.

Each year thousands of golfers from across the country participate in over 30 events across the U.S. for the exciting competition and the chance to earn an invitation to the National Finals at Pebble Beach—while raising over $3.5 million for the NKF. Top 3 finishing teams (Gross and Handicap Index Divisions combined) are invited to compete in the National Finals held at the famed Pebble Beach Resorts in January 2019.

A venerable tradition of great golf began with the design of a world-class course carved out of thick forest in 1969. This challenging course, along with Hall of Fame instructors and strong playing membership, continues to attract top amateur players and professional golfers to Royal Oaks Country Club each year. By joining us at this year’s tournament, you will help to support the lifesaving programs and services of the National Kidney Foundation.

Foursome entry fee is $2,000. Sponsorships are available. Visit the website for registration and details:    or contact the National Kidney Foundation, Tiffany Archibald, Director of Development, 214-214-351-2393,
