About The Honda Classic

The Honda Classic, with a star-studded list of former champions and nearly four decades of massive impact on South Florida children’s charities, is one of the elite events on the PGA TOUR. The tournament awarded $5.1 million to 100 South Florida philanthropic organizations in 2021, a number that approached tournament record levels despite the widespread impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The $5.1 million distribution impacted the lives of more than 100,000 children and provided a much-needed boost to South Florida community charities that faced their own fiscal challenges in a tough year. The Honda Classic has now surpassed $55 million in charitable contributions as American Honda enters its 41st year as title sponsor of the PGA TOUR event, including almost $40 million in the 15 years since Children’s Healthcare Charity, Inc. became the host organization and moved the event to PGA National Resort and Spa.
