The Grand Oak Classic is hosted by Academy Prep Tampa annually in the fall. This event includes an evening dinner on Wednesday, October 16,  for golfers, spouses and other guests, followed  by a golf tournament on Monday, October 21.

This year, we are pleased to honor noted community leaders Troy and Elizabeth Fowler as the recipients of the 2019 Fred S. Ridley Grand Oak Award. For over a decade the Fowlers have supported Academy Prep, creating a culture that prioritizes students’ social and emotional intelligence and empowers practices of mindfulness by annually funding Frameworks programming. The Fowlers possess a strong sense of mission for giving back to others and have made a significant and lasting impact on our school and in the Tampa Bay community.

Sponsorships are available for both foursomes and individuals. Sponsorship includes dinner for golfer and guest, breakfast, lunch, and 18 holes of golf. Attendance at dinner is approximately 200-250 guests; a maximum of 18 foursomes play in this exclusive tournament.
