The 27th annual Little Bogey’s Golf Classic, presented by Koehler Electric, is set with a shotgun start at noon on Monday, May 8, at Oakwood Country Club (1067 US Highway 6, Coal Valley, Illinois).

Proceeds from the Little Bogey’s Golf Classic are invested back into Quad Cities families through SAL’s high-quality child-care and education programs. In 2022, community support for the Little Bogey’s event provided more than $25,000 in support for school-aged children attending SAL’s Skip-a-Long Childhood Centers.

The registration fee is $175 per golfer or $700 per foursome. Each golfer package includes eighteen holes of golf with a cart, a boxed lunch and snacks, two drink tickets, an individual Mulligan, one special tee, and a loaded goodie bag. Golfers can win additional prizes for longest drive, longest putt, hole-in-one, closest to the pin, and drive to the middle. Additional events available for purchase include a ball-drop 50/50, hire a pro to tee off, the mystery prize game (a crowd favorite), raffles, and a silent auction.

Limited sponsorships are still available, and donations for games, raffles, the silent auction, and prizes are requested.
