Walker's Fall Classic


Walker's Fall Classic Golf Tournament

October 21, 2021 | Golf Club of Avon

Join us for a fun day of golf while supporting Walker’s student-athletes!

The proceeds of Walker’s Fall Classic will provide additional resources to enhance the Walker’s Athletics Program by creating and expanding opportunities for student-athletes to learn, lead, and compete. Through your participation, you will play an important role in preparing our young women for success beyond our campus as graduates of Walker’s.

There are a number of ways to participate! You can enter a foursome or as part of a foursome. If you’re unable to golf, you can join us for dinner, become a sponsor, or contribute to our silent auction and raffle prize offerings.
