The Jeff Jarnigan YOKE Golf Classic is presented each spring by Home Federal Bank. The tournament, held at Three Ridges Golf Course, features a scramble format and prizes are awarded to the top teams as well as to winners of a long drive, closest to the pin, and putting competition. This year’s event was a success, raising more than $27,000 for the programs and services that YOKE provides to middle schools across 5 counties.

Jeff Jarnigan, the voice of the Tennessee Volunteers at both Neyland Stadium and Thompson Boling Arena, headlines the event each year. “I’ve been a supporter of YOKE since it started,” Jeff explained. After the loss of his father at age 12, Jeff was impacted by a personal relationship with YOKE founder and former director John Coatney, and his wife Helen. “It’s a great organization that does do much good,” Jeff added. “I will always be a supporter of YOKE.”

After a beautiful morning of competition, golfers were welcomed back to the clubhouse with lunch from Hamburger Hill, courtesy of our sponsors His Security. If you missed them at the golf tournament, make sure to catch up with their food truck, or give them a call about catering your event. You won’t be disappointed.

Dwayne Hunt, Johnny Cox, David Disney, and Brad Bullock from the Anderson Crossing Pharmacy team took home top honors. The team from Graham & Cook Insurance came in second place, and the team led by Stephen Millsaps came in third. The prize for the long drive competition was captured by Corey Lehy, YOKE Folk Matthew Scheunemann came closest to the pin, and Corbin Hedges won the putting contest.
