Golf Classic 2018

Philadelphia Orchestra Annual Golf Classic Event

Tuesday, May 15, 2018
Applebrook Golf Club
Malvern, PA 

For the last 26 years, The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Annual Golf Classic has raised significant funds for the Orchestra’s Collaborative Learning and Community Partnership programs, which enable the Orchestra to reach out to thousands of students and community members each year, bringing the power of classical music to the broader community, and to the next generation of audiences.

This year’s Classic will be held at Applebrook Golf Club, a private club established with the purpose of providing its members with unlimited access to the first tee. They are a "walking" golf club and therefore maintain one of the finest caddie programs in the country. Applebrook is consistently ranked by Golf Digest among the "Best in State."
