Golf Classic

Good legislation begins with good lawmakers. Proceeds from the PRLA Golf Classic support political action and advocacy funds, as well as and the National Restaurant Association Restaurant Advocacy Fund. These funds are used to educate lawmakers on the issues and challenges facing the restaurant and hospitality industry in Pennsylvania and across the country. Treat yourself, your customers, or your employees to a fine day of golf on one of Pennsylvania’s premiere golf courses, while supporting your industry. Reserve early – this outing is always a sell out.

New for 2022, the PRLA Golf Classic will be held in conjunction with the PRLA Annual Conference & Awards Gala, September 12-13 at The Hotel Hershey.
