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.
