Posted: August 30, 2023

CHINO HILLS, CA :: On Monday, August 28, Hope International University hosted its 17th Annual HIU GOLF CHALLENGE at the Western Hills Country Club to help fund student scholarships and departmental programs. Our generous donors and sponsors teamed up to give nearly $50,000. Over the past 17 years, HIU’s tournament has raised almost $900,000 to benefit Hope students.

The Men's and Womens' HIU Royals Golf Teams served as ambassadors throughout the day. Participants enjoyed warm sunshine and fellowship throughout the day's activities, which included a putting contest and opportunities to win great prizes throughout the round. The event culminated with a fun, informal, delicious awards dinner at Cedar Creek in Brea.
