Each year, Coral Springs students are the winners at the “Golfing for the King” Golf Classic — where proceeds go to scholarships benefiting high school seniors.

The Coral Springs Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee hosts the 14th Annual MLK Golf Classic “Golfing for the King” on April 22, which honors Walter “Skip” Campbell, the late Mayor of Coral Springs.

During his tenure as mayor, Campbell was a champion for diversity and inclusion. He helped elevate the MLK Committee and further their work in the community. Campbell was also a regular participant in and supporter of the MLK Golf Classic. The event will benefit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund for Coral Springs high schools students.

“Our MLK Committee works hard to ensure golfers have a great time while raising funds to benefit the rising leaders in our community,” Joshua Simmons, Vice Mayor, and MLK Committee liaison, said. “Honoring Mayor Campbell, and his contributions to our city, make this year’s Golf Classic even more special.”

More than 300 high school seniors have received scholarships due to the MLK Scholarship Fund. The recipients are chosen based on financial need, regardless of ethnicity. The students can apply the scholarship money toward tuition costs at a university or other educational institution.

The City Commission recognized 15 deserving high school students with MLK Scholarships in 2021. Scholarship amounts ranged from $700 to $2,600 per student.

Held at the Country Club of Coral Springs at 10800 W Sample Road,  Registration starts at 7 a.m., and the event formally kicks off with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.
