Golf Tournament

The California Maritime Academy Foundation Golf Classic is a premier day of golf benefiting the cadets and educational programs at Cal Maritime.

Since 1998, our tournament has provided an opportunity for guests from industry to network, connect with their customers, and enjoy golfing on the golf course.

Our tournament also honors the memory of two past board members: Dr. B.C. Kingsbury and Captain Fred Henning '95, who through their service on the tournament's committee helped provide the highest caliber of training to cadets preparing to make their mark on our global economies. Funds raised through the golf tournament will be directed to benefit memorial scholarship endowments in their names.

We invite you to join our list of sponsors, donors, and friends for another successful event.
