About the Classic

The Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic was established in 2000 by Doyon Foundation in honor of the late Morris Thompson, who served as the president/CEO of Doyon, Limited from 1985 until his passing in 2000. The annual event is held each year in mid-June at the Chena Bend Golf Course on Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Proceeds from the classic support the Morris Thompson Scholarship Fund, an endowed fund benefitting Alaska Native, higher education students studying business management and leadership. As of 2010, the Foundation has awarded 56 Morris Thompson scholarships totaling $121,400.
