About the Classic . . .

A simple idea — a belief of the Willow Park Golf & Country Club in the importance of giving back to the community, of supporting worthwhile causes on behalf of the Club and its members — began the Willow Park Charity Golf Classic.

For 29 years, since 1988, through the generosity of Willow Park Directors and members, and through the support of sponsors,players and volunteers, the Willow Park Charity Golf Classic has donated over $9.5 million to Calgary charities.

This year, proceeds from the Willow Park Golf Charity Classic will support the Children’s Hospital Foundation KidSIM Program. Like flight simulation for pilots, high-tech human patient simulation is becoming increasingly important in training medical professionals for potentially lethal emergencies. The Alberta Children’s Hospital KidSIM™ team has helped pioneer this field in Canada and provides crucial training within the largest on-site pediatric simulation lab in the country. Each year, 4,000 health care providers and students are able to use sophisticated mannequins that simulate breathing, pulses, blood pressure, speech and sound during mock trauma and resuscitation drills that help them prepare for real life emergencies.
