The 2023 Jeff Jarnigan YOKE Golf Classic, presented by Home Federal Bank will be held Friday, June 2nd at Three Ridges Golf Course. The tournament will have one flight with a shotgun start at 8:30 am. Lunch is included in the cost of the tournament and will be served at noon. All proceeds from the tournament benefit the ministry of YOKE in Knox, Blount, Anderson, Jefferson, Loudon, and Grainger Counties.

After losing his father as a middle school student, Jeff Jarnigan developed a close personal relationship with YOKE founders John and Helen Coatney. “I consider it an honor to be involved with YOKE and with the YOKE Golf Classic,” said Jeff, now the PA announcer for the Vols at both Thompson-Boling Arena and Neyland Stadium. “I support YOKE because YOKE changes kids’ lives.”

Prizes will be awarded for the top teams as well as for winners of the long drive, closest to the pin, and putting competitions. A hole-in-one could win you a FREE CAR!

The cost is $125/person or $500 for a team and includes all range fees, use of a cart and the practice range, and lunch. Garbage packages can be purchased for $20 when you register or the day of the event, and include 1 mulligan and 1 shot from the red tees (not valid on prize holes, limit one per person).

Three ways that you can help.

  1. Help sponsor the event. Most of the income from the golf tournament is generated through corporate sponsors. There are a variety of sponsorship levels. Talk to your business, church, or community organization about being involved.
  2. Come play! Recruit your own foursome and invite other golfers to do the same. It’s a great way to enjoy each other’s company and support the ministry of YOKE.
  3. Donate prizes. Talk to your place of business about products, services, or gift cards that could be used in prize packs for the winners. Talk to your friends, partners, and vendors about doing the same.
