    Pepperdine Wave Classic 2017 was again hosted at The Riviera Country Club's championship golf course located in Pacific Palisades, California on October 9th. Owning a legendary place on the American golfing landscape, Riviera's famed George Thomas-designed golf course has hosted one U.S. Open, two PGA Championships and a U.S. Senior Open, in addition to serving as the perennial site of the PGA Tour's Northern Trust Open.  This exhilarating event blessed Seaver College students and faculty with more than $2,000,000 in scholarship and program resources. The men's and women's golf teams have also been a generous beneficiary of this tournament's proceeds.

    Our exciting day consisted of a tasty breakfast, barbeque lunch; contests will include a Golf "Warm-Up" Clinic, Longest Drive, closest to the pin and Putting Contest. The day closed with a cocktail reception and awards dinner followed by silent and live auctions.

    If you are interested in playing in or supporting this annual event in the 2018 Wave Classic please contact Kim Barkis at (310) 506-6110.
