MEMPHIS DISTRICT GOLF CLASSIC
September 9, 2023
Please join us for the Memphis District Golf Classic, the official golf tournament of the Southern Heritage Classic. Formerly known as the Ed “Too Tall” Jones Golf Classic, this new and exciting tournament offers a day of upscale golfing at Tunica Resorts in Tunica, MS. This resort is the signature destination for exceptional golf and tennis and is home to an 18-hole course that features Champion Bermuda greens, gently rolling zoysia fairways, tee boxes with six markers, and generous landing areas that both pros and novice players can enjoy. Proceeds from this inaugural tournament will assist in developing youth golf education programs.
The Memphis Golf Classic is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring at-risk youth and their families through exposure to the wonderful game of golf. We feel it is our duty to help youth see beyond their circumstances and environment by introducing them to beneficial opportunities that exist to help them create a bright future. Golf is the game of champions and a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, increase mental alertness, have fun and make new friends!
We are inviting communities, businesses, churches, youth, adults and anyone else who wishes to join us during this worthwhile event. With your support, we can not only share the game of golf with youth but provide them with mentorship and counsel. We want them to know there is hope and help when facing life’s challenges. There are people who care and they are NOT alone.
