Annual charitable outings include: 

Peyton Manning Golf Classic

The Peyton Manning Golf Classic is a summer event where more than 225 golfers enjoy a round of golf in the morning or afternoon with former UT quarterback and current Denver Bronco quarterback, Peyton Manning. The PeyBack Foundation, established by Peyton Manning himself in 1999, promotes the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide both leadership and opportunities for children at risk. All proceeds from this golf tournament will help children in Tennessee. Want to learn more? Click here.

The Butterfly Fund

We are proud that one of the many annual fundraisers hosted on our course is The Butterfly Fund Golf Tournament. The Butterfly Fund was established by the families of Emily Barger and Maddie Harrill through the East Tennessee Foundation in memory of their daughters who were both diagnosed in 2007 with a rare form of childhood cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma. Both children passed away in the summer of 2008; however, the Butterfly Fund continues to support the research, treatment and services dedicated to the defeat of childhood cancers.
