About the ITC Golf Classic

In 2018, a great tradition celebrates its 38th anniversary as WJR and Frank Beckmann present the ITC Golf Classic to benefit the March of Dimes. 

HISTORY

The year was 1981 and the March of Dimes Celebrity Golf Classic was in its beginning stages. Stan Aldridge from Indianwood Golf and Country Club welcomed us to his renowned golf course and Arnold Palmer helped kick-off the first annual event.

Over the years, we have honored such greats as Gordie Howe, Ken Holland, Tom Izzo, Bo Schembechler, Al Kaline, Bill Laimbeer, Kirk Gibson and Ted Lindsay for their support and dedication to the March of Dimes mission: To improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Our guests have enjoyed playing with celebrities like Eddie Murray, Eli Zaret, Denny McLain, Jason Thompson, Dave Rozema, Monte Clark, Chuck Schmidt, Rhonda Walker, Milt Wilcox, Marty Pavelich, Gary Danielson and Frank Beckmann – our host for the past 35 years. We thank all of the support we have had over the past years which helped us raise over $5 million for the March of Dimes.
