Things are heating up in Palm Desert as the 2012 Humana Challenge kicks off – and guests at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa are just a short drive away from the festivities! The new Humana Challenge PGA Tour event, formerly known as the Bob Hope Classic, includes celebrities such as Morgan Freeman, Alice Cooper, Julius Irving, and more, along with some of the best PGA golfers in the world, for a tournament that celebrates health and well-being at every age.
You’ll find Palm Springs events all week long – from the kick-off breakfast to the couples challenge to the main event – played at the La Quinta Country Club and the Palmer and Nicklaus Private Courses at PGA West. This Coachella Valley golf tournament features Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Greg Norman, and local-favorite Anthony Kim, along with personalities like Don Cheadle, Smokey Robinson, and Billy Crudup. The fun culminates on Sunday, January 22 when pros only compete in the final round for a winner’s check of more than 1 million dollars.
The 2012 Humana Challenge also presents the first national conference on health and well-being, entitled “Health Matters: Activating Wellness in Every Generation,” with a keynote address by President Bill Clinton. Designed to encourage participants and the millions of viewers across the country to proactively live healthier lifestyles, the PGA event includes on-course wellness activities, healthy snacks at the concession stands, pedometers to track daily steps, and a family fit area.
The 2012 Humana Challenge is presented by Humana, the Clinton Foundation, and the PGA Tour, with tickets starting at $25.
