College Heights Foundation Golf Classic
The College Heights Foundation Golf Classic Scholarship Fund was initiated in 1974 by a sponsoring committee made up of Emmons O. Pearson Jr., Robert M. Pearce, Harold B. McGuffey, and Herbert J. Smith. These four founders developed the idea of having a two-day golf tournament, in which the proceeds would benefit a permanent scholarship fund for needy and worthy students at Western Kentucky University. Since its inception, the tournament has been held at Bowling Green Country Club. Throughout the 40 plus years of the CHF Golf Classic, over $800,000 has been awarded to more than 1,500 deserving students.
