ALDIE, Va., July 26, 2019—The 2019 Creighton Farms Invitational Hosted by Jack Nicklaus returns this August when Jack and Barbara Nicklaus come back to the Creighton Farms course that Jack built. Initially created as a one-day tournament, the event has grown to three days of exciting events leading up to one of the Washington D.C. area’s premier charity pro-am golf events.

The weekend kicks off on Saturday, August 24 with players and their guests invited to attend a welcome Par-Tee at The Middleburg Barn. The Spazmatics will provide a concert and seven-time Cy Young Award Winner, Roger Clemens, will provide an evening of fun as DJ No Requests. On Sunday, August 25, players will meet at Creighton Farms for brunch and an optional practice round. Guests are then invited to join the players at Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg for a special evening hosted by Jack Nicklaus that includes cocktails, dinner, a charity auction with extraordinary experiences and amazing items and a fireside chat with Jack Nicklaus—all hosted by Golf Channel personality Charlie Rymer. On Monday, August 26, players will gather at The Clubhouse at Creighton Farms for a special day of golf hosted by Jack Nicklaus. Following breakfast, each foursome will have the opportunity for a group photo with Nicklaus before teeing off in the 18-hole golf tournament alongside PGA Tour Pros. A luncheon follows for players and guests and then an awards ceremony.

The Creighton Farms Invitational was created in 2012, and was primarily the brainchild of David Southworth, president and CEO of Southworth Development LLC, which owns and operates Creighton Farms, a community featuring an award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Loudoun County, Virginia.

“The Creighton Farms Invitational is an example of an event that’s much more than the sum of its parts, and one that our community is increasingly proud to host year after year,” said Southworth, who also serves as an event chair, along with Southworth Development Chairman Joe Deitch.
The CFI is one of only a handful of elite tournaments created by Nicklaus to benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. The Foundation came about because of the Nicklaus family’s interest in helping children gain access to world-class healthcare. The event has raised a significant amount of money for the Foundation and other children’s healthcare charities. In addition to the Foundation, the event will also contribute to The National PKU Alliance.

“In just seven years, this event has raised $6 million for children’s health-care initiatives, and it brings us great joy to continue this tradition of raising funds for children, while providing a charity golf tournament experience unlike anything else in the region,” said Deitch.

A very few spots are still available in the 2019 Creighton Farms Invitational Hosted by Jack Nicklaus. In addition to the opportunity to participate in the golf tournament, there are also packages for those who do not golf but would like to attend the Saturday and Sunday events in Middleburg. Sponsorship packages are also available. For information on how you can participate in this year’s CFI, contact Michelle Persteiner at (715) 495-4008, or by email atmichelle.persteiner@nkpua.org.
