Pepperdine's 2018 Wave Classic will be again hosted at The Riviera Country Club's championship golf course located in Pacific Palisades, California on October 22, 2018. 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 has 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 consists 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 closes with a cocktail reception and awards dinner followed by silent and live auctions.
