Porky's Open Golf Tournament Registration Now Open
Thursday, May 12, 2022
The Chattanooga Mocs are excited to announce registration is open for the 23rd annual Porky’s Open golf tournament presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee. The event is scheduled for August 23 at Council Fire Golf Club.
The four-person select shot format has long been a staple of the Chattanooga golf scene. Players can sign up as a team or individually and be placed in available groups. The field is flighted according to the total handicap of the entire grouping with flights determined by Club Pro.
“This is one of my favorite days of the year,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Mark Wharton shared.
“The Chattanooga community is so very supportive of our efforts, and there are a lot of the area’s golfers who have gotten their first glimpse of who we are through this event. I’m also proud of how involved our coaches and programs are in putting on such a major event.
“Most of all, it’s the impact on our student-athletes that I appreciate most about this special event.”
The Porky’s Open was created by late benefactor Frank “Porky” Kinser (1940-2020). Over the past 20+ years, it is a staple on the Chattanooga golf calendar, and the Mocs are proud to carry on his legacy as it provides the community with a wonderful day of golf and fellowship. A portion of the proceeds goes directly to the Frank Kinser Porky’s Open Endowed Scholarship which provides a continuous support stream to generations upon generations of Chattanooga Mocs.
Registering to play is not the only way to be involved. Sponsorships at a variety of levels from tee areas to greens to promotional items prominently featured for every participant as well as materials to the general public are available as well.
