Golf Classic

The Small Steps Golf Classic is a premier charity golf tournament in Houston held each fall at Champions Golf Club.

Since the first tournament in 1996, the Golf Classic has raised more than $16.2 million for Small Steps Nurturing Center.
The Golf Classic is a first-class business entertainment event that is well known for the large number of great door prizes given away at the awards dinner following the tournament. In 2021, more than 70 corporations, foundations, and individuals sponsored the Golf Classic in support of Houston’s economically at-risk children.
