2017 Schedule will be announced this week!
About the Els for Autism Golf Challenge: Spearheaded by World of Golf Hall of Famer Ernie Els, the Golf Challenge consists of a series of Super Regional events at top-rated courses across the United States and Canada from May through October. Two-person teams compete for a place at the Grand Finale and Seminar - a two-day extravaganza including an autism seminar, golf and entertainment in Las Vegas hosted by Ernie and Liezl Els November 4-5, 2016 at the Encore Hotel.
In this tournament a team's fundraising ability is valued as much as their performance on the golf course. Teams compete for regional event prizes and every team who raised $13,000 or more have now qualified to join Ernie and friends at the Finale.
Everyone can participate in the Golf Challenge. Want to walk? Planning a bake sale and want to have your friends donate to your efforts? Have an event in your hometown and want to qualify for the Finale by making a donation? Please join in on the fun by creating a Gallery Club team and fundraise your way to the Finale as you help people dealing with autism every day. Click here for more information.
