The Celebrity Chef Classic kicks off Friday evening with a VIP cocktail reception by the new Herb Garden Pool with wine and appetizers presented by each celebrity chef.

The golf tournament begins Saturday at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start where guests have the opportunity to play Ojai's greens, designed by George C. Thomas, Jr. and home to seven PGA Senior Tour events, alongside our participating chefs and celebrities.

Proceeds from the event will benefit two charities - Help of Ojai (
