Our Story

The Bob Downs Invitational Golf Classic is a ministry of St. Matthews Baptist Church in Louisville, and is named in honor of former SMBC member and avid golfer, Bob Downs. The tournament is played with the two-fold purpose of sharing faith and helping others in the name of Jesus.

The Bob Downs Invitational Golf Classic has been partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Louisville since 2011. To date we have raised more than $225,000, and help build ten houses!

Click on the Sponsor tab to find out how you can help working poor in Louisville realize the life-changing dream of becoming homeowners. Registered players will receive additional information about a brand new, fun idea that has the potential of raising an additional $2,000 for Habitat!

2022 Lunch provided by Chick-fil-A and sponsored by Republic Bank!


New in ’22! Sponsor a player!

In an effort to raise more money for Habitat, we are introducing the opportunity to sponsor individual or multiple players!  We are suggesting $1/hole for a total of $18/player, but you can sponsor in any amount you like.  Support a friend or family member, or give in honor of someone else.
