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.
