2019 Richard King III Grand Classic

Beecroft Construction is the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s Richard King III CHRISTUS Spohn Grand Classic! Shotgun start is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Monday, October 21st at the Corpus Christi Country Club.

This year, the proceeds raised from the 2019 Grand Classic will support the Inpatient Rehabilitation Department at CHRISTUS Spohn – Shoreline. Our inpatient rehabilitation program is accredited by The Joint Commission and specializes in treating amputations, brain injury, joint replacements, orthopedic injuries, spinal cord injuries, stroke and trauma injuries. Patients admitted to our rehabilitation department are treated by physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapists as prescribed, as well as pet therapy. Spohn’s rehabilitation department is unique in the Coastal Bend because we offer a Transitional Living Apartment for patients and their caregivers to stay in before they are discharged. This apartment, which mimics a home-like setting, provides patients an opportunity to practice specific daily living skills in order to facilitate the patient’s transition from a hospital setting to community living.

Join us for a fun afternoon of golf and a reception immediately following play.

About the Event

The Richard King III CHRISTUS Spohn Grand Classic has become one of the most notable fundraisers of the year across South Texas with roots grounded solely in philanthropy and a love for the game of golf.

CHRISTUS Spohn Health System’s charitable golf tournament has supported the healing mission of the hospital system for more than two decades. The philanthropic event began in 1991 when the late Vernon Medlin, M.D., a longtime radiologist and radiation oncologist with CHRISTUS Spohn, teamed with Corpus Christi Country Club Head Golf Professional Doug DeSive to raise money for the hospital system through his favorite pastime.

The 2002 Grand Classic was held in memory of the late F.F. Rogers M.D., a general surgeon who practiced with CHRISTUS Spohn. Dr. Rogers had made such an impression on one of his patients, Richard King III, that King was inspired to chair the event and host it in tribute of Rogers. As a member of the CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation’s Board of Directors, King championed the tournament for several years. When King passed away, it seemed natural to name the tournament in his honor.
