Golfers living in coastal Orange County have a chance to see a PGA golf tournament and help raise money for a good cause. The Hoag Classic is coming up beginning Wednesday March 4th and running through Sunday, March 8th. The stop on the PGA Tour Champions is held at Newport Beach Country Club. The tournament raises money for Hoag, which operates two hospitals and multiple health centers throughout the area. Chances are good that all coastal Orange County home owners have been to a Hoag facility at one time or another. In addition to Hoag, the tournament supports many other local charities.

This year, all active duty, reservists, National Guard, retired military, and veterans are welcome to attend for free, along with three guests, and enjoy the golf as well as complimentary food and beverages. This year, the event will be on Saturday, March 7th.
