A History and 25-year Legacy
The 25th Annual Maxwell Cup Golf Tournament

Pacific Union College’s golf tournament started in 1994 and was renamed the Maxwell Cup Golf Classic in 2001 in honor of Dr. Malcom Maxwell, President of the college for eighteen (18) years. Because of his dedication to education, Malcom Maxwell was honored by the Board of Directors who named him President Emeritus of Pacific Union College. Since he loved interacting with students, alumni and supporters, he attended the tournament well into retirement until his passing in October 2007. It is currently named Maxwell Cup Golf Tournament in remembrance of our great leader. 

During its history, the tournament has grossed over $820,000 to support students the college as they “prepare for productive lives of useful human service and uncompromising personal integrity” in the global society.
