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 in November. 

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 raises $13,000 or more will automatically qualify to join Ernie and friends at the Finale.
