About the Tournament
The KUMC Memorial Golf Classic started in the 1990s. We know for sure that one was held June 14, 1997 at Willow Springs, affectionately called the pasture. Some of the early organizers were Earl Teague, Bill Sorley, Dave Hill, Brian Irwin, Dan Hernandez and Neil Herbert.
In the following years, after Neil passed away, the tournament was called the Neil Herbert Memorial. Later, when Karen Roberts joined Neil in heaven, the name was changed to the Neil Herbert and Karen Roberts Memorial Golf Classic. As more members joined their esteemed ranks, the name was again changed to the KUMC Memorial Golf Classic. We are still blessed to have Doris Herbert, Neil's widow, involved in this event along with the Roberts family. Many of the golfers have participated every year since the tournament's inception.
Over the years, the proceeds from this event have help fund church camps, mission trips, Water to Life and many other church missions. We look forward to continuing this worthwhile event for many years to come.
