The Just Fore Kids® Golf Classic began as the Foster Brooks Pro Celebrity Golf Tournament in 1970 with Foster Brooks serving as honorary chairman. The famous actor and comedian, who was born in Louisville, attended the event every year until his death in 2001. In 1997, the event changed its name to the Just Fore Kids® Golf Classic. The event has raised nearly $1.7 million dollars over the past 20 years to support Kosair Charities and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The key founders and organizers of this event include Bobby Clarkson and Randy Coe. This year’s event is presented by Galt House Hotel.
