Our History

The Tournament
George Knudson passed away from cancer in 1989, but his memory is still inspiring people to make a difference. The Knudson Oakdale Pro-Am was launched soon after George died from lung cancer.

The 29th annual Knudson Oakdale Pro-Am will take place on Wednesday September 5, 2018 and continue the fight against cancer, raising significant research dollars for Mount Sinai Hospital’s Lunenfeld Tanenbaum Research Institute and Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF). Oakdale Golf and Country Club and the tournament have committed $1 million each to Mount Sinai Hospital and ICRF from the proceeds of future Knudson Oakdale Pro-Am tournaments.
