As Seen On WATE

A local youth ministry is preparing to host their fourth annual golf tournament to benefit ministry programs. 

YOKE Youth Ministries, a faith-based mentoring program for middle school students, is hosting its 4th Annual Jeff Jarnigan YOKE Golf Classic on Friday, May 4th, at Three Ridges Golf Course. 

The event, presented by Home Federal Bank, features a scramble format with shotgun starts at 8:30 am and 1:30 pm. There will be prizes for the top finishers in each flight, and separate competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt. 

Jeff Jarnigan, Knoxville media personality and public address announcer for the Tennessee Volunteers, considers it an honor to headline the YOKE Golf Classic. After losing his father at the age of 12, Jeff benefited from a mentoring relationship with YOKE founder, John Coatney. “I support YOKE because YOKE changes kids’ lives,” says Jarnigan.

The cost is $100 per person and includes all range fees, use of a cart and the practice range, and lunch, provided this year by Shafer Insurance. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information or to register, visit yokeyouth.com/golf or call (865) 522-6907.
