Humana, the new title sponsor, and the William J. Clinton Foundation joined forces for the first time two years ago at the Humana Challenge, kicking off an eight-year partnership with the PGA tour. Formerly known as the Bob Hope Classic, the Humana Challenge now follows a traditional four-day tournament schedule while still retaining many of its popular celebrity Pro-Am features.
Since its introduction in 1960 as the Palm Springs Golf Classic, the tournament has generated more than $50 million for charity and literally funded the construction of the Eisenhower Medical Center, thanks in large part to Bob Hope becoming involved as tournament host in 1965.
Tickets start at just $25 for a Daily Gallery Pass, which includes grounds access to all three courses for one day. The event also allows up to two children under the age of 12 into the tournament for free when accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket.
