Alas, The Langley 2020 shall not come to pass,
yet we look towards 2021 to once again raise a glass to the memory of Jim Langley,
with a shout to the courage of our Veterans, and a nod to the Legends of our game!
As you can imagine, circumstances have made it impossible for us to hold The Langley in 2020. As the magic of The Langley involves our patrons gathering together at Pebble Beach to pay tribute to PGA TOUR Legends while honoring the spirit of Jim Langley, a decision has been made to forego this year's activities. With so many unknowns in people's lives and schedules due to covid-19, we were not able to secure all the components needed to provide a successful alternate virtual experience.
We are grateful to know that our Host Peter Jacobsen and our Honorees David Feherty and Bill Perocchi remain committed to the cause and vow to return in 2021. It is with this fortitude that we hope all our patrons stay strong and well, and look forward to joining us at The Langley in August of 2021.
Your support is so important. This year we are in need of your financial help even more! Please consider making a donation to help give HOPE to our veterans through the great game of golf:
- Your donation of $200 can purchase a starter set of clubs & bag for a Veteran
- Your donation of $250 can put a Veteran through PGA HOPE
- Your donation of $6,250 can fully fund a six week PGA HOPE program for 25 veterans, where you will be recognized as the Program Sponsor.

The Langley, A Tribute to Legends Charity Pro-Am provides an intimate golf experience like no other. Guests enjoy a two day event, starting with An Evening with Golf's Legends where attendees have a meet & greet with the Honorees. The following day, guests are treated to The Langley Charity Pro-Am tournament held at Pebble Beach Golf Links, followed by an Awards Luncheon attended by players, Honorees and Langley family members.
Named after former PGA Head Professional Jim Langley of Cypress Point Club, The Langley is the NCPGA Foundation's premier charitable fundraising event designed to honor the game's legends, where proceeds are donated to deserving charities. Langley was admired world-wide for his generosity and humble nature, and is the epitome of what this event is about. Jim was a UC Berkeley alumni, four-sports athlete, and member of Cal's famous 1959 Champion basketball team, and he also proudly served in the US Marine Corps.

“Jim Langley was a great golf pro, and over the parts of four decades he spent at Cypress Point, his contributions were made quietly because of the self-effacing person he was, yet their impact was far-reaching and lasting. He was a tremendous ambassador for our game. I had the fortunate pleasure to be with Jim...on a night I was truly honored to have received an award bearing his name.” - Jack Nicklaus (2012)
