Humana Challenge Golf Tournament: January 13th-19th, 2014

Like all Palm Springs area golf enthusiasts, the Desert Empire Insurance team is looking forward to the Humana Challenge golf tournament, January 13-19. Since its founding, this prestigious tournament has been among the jewels of Palm Springs events. As insurance professionals, we’re especially pleased to recommend an event that focuses on health and wellness.

The tournament stands out for a commitment to charity. Over the years, the annual event has helped to raise more than $50 million for Eisenhower Medical Center and other area charities. Child welfare agencies, social services, food pantries and shelters have all benefitted. Those benefits flow from our community members, who have organized, promoted and attended the tournament since its beginning.

In the past it was known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, the tournament placed a special emphasis on pro-am play. That tradition continues with the Humana Classic. There’s a Club Team Challenge on Monday, January 13, followed by more pro-am play on Wednesday through Saturday. Thursday is Senior’s Day, Friday has been designated Women’s Day, and Saturday is Humana Military Appreciation Day. The PGA pros play the final rounds of golf on Sunday, January 19.
