LPGA Portland Classic
Written by: Rick McCloskey
The State of Oregon, the home of the Portland Classic, is the largest producer of Christmas Trees in the world. That said, the largest competition today comes from artificial trees that end up in landfill for hundreds of years.
In a spirited effort to champion the cause of living and authentic trees, the Portland Classic for 2024 and its sponsors introduced "Get Real" tree boxes and ceremonial tee boxes. The response to this initiative was nothing short of remarkable, resonating positively with audiences far and wide. Media outlets across the world extensively covered this endeavor, serving as a testament to the notion that promoting sustainability can be achieved without the need for a substantial budget.
