Tournament Details

Hundreds of golfers teed off for a good cause during this tournament.

They won prizes, bid on fabulous live and silent auction packages, and had a fun time raising money for Special Olympics.


The Nordholm Classic is named after Betty Nordholm, whose passion and enthusiasm for Special Olympics was an inspiration to all of us. She passed away in 1999 after more than 30 years as Area Director of Special Olympics Long Beach. Her leadership and dedication are being continued by her daughter, Elyse Nordholm Garcia.

Thank You

The Nordholm Classic was made possible thanks to the support of the Steering Committee, volunteers, sponsors, and many more supporters.

We couldn't have done it without you...thanks!

Training for Life

Special Olympics Long Beach provides free year-round sports training and competitions for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics is more than a sports program. Our programs help build the self-confidence of our athletes so they can give back to their community. They drive the athletes' determination so they can overcome hurdles. They give families hope that their children, siblings, and relatives will achieve their potential. We provide individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to become more physically fit and live happier, healthier, and longer lives.
