While the traditional golf tournament and banquet fundraising event at an elite Oklahoma City country club is not taking place this year, the financial demands and student needs remain great. After extensive conversation, the David Baker Golf Classic planning committee voted to embrade a radical new approach.

We are excited to announce the new online competition format that allows participants the latitude to choose their own golf course and date of play through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The traditional Baker format was limited to a specific date and place. This world-wide expansion of participants will allow many more SNU supporters to demonstrate their love for the unique SNU approach to sport and ministry.
