Roberta Hughes Wright Memorial Golf Classic! Presented by Avis Ford

Monday, July 27, 2020 | 8 AM Registration

Join us at the end of July at the recently renovated Rouge Park Golf Course for the Roberta Hughes Wright Memorial Golf Classic! This fun-filled day of golf, food, and fellowship, presented by Avis Ford, will provide much needed support for the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. 


The establishment of the Roberta Hughes Wright Golf Classic amplifies the Women's Committee's efforts. The goal is to make this an event for years to come, anticipated by golfers from the Michigan region, as well as golfers from around the United States.

2020 Chairperson: Karen Chappelle

2020 Co-chairs: Retha and Walter Douglas and Cynthia and Larry Long.

2020 Honorary chairs: Wilbur Hughes and Barbara K. Smith

In 2019, author, educator, and Women's Committee champion Dr. Roberta Hughes Wright passed away at the age of 96. Because of her dedication to the success of the Women's Committee, the name of the event, which had already been named in honor of Dr. Hughes Wright, was changed to reflect her memory.


8 AM: Registration and contest entries

9 AM: Shotgun start

Cost: $175 for individuals, $600 for foursomes. Each registration covers golf, lunch at the turn, and a post-game awards banquet. Foursomes must register at once.


Registration includes a membership to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. If you already have a membership to The Wright, then the cost will be deferred to advance students in the Midnight Golf Program.




The Women's Committee promotes and supports The Wright Museum through volunteering and community involvement. The efforts of the Women's Committee increase visibility and enhances the legacy of the Museum through financial support.


Dr. Roberta Hughes Wright was an award-winning author, educator, and humanitarian. The widow of Museum founder Dr. Charles H. Wright, she remained involved in Museum activities and affairs until her passing on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at the age of 96.
