Holston Hills Country Club | Knoxville, Tennessee
The Patricia Neal Golf Classic is a TPGA sanctioned pro/am event benefiting the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center in Knoxville, TN. Named for the late Oscar-winning actress Patricia Neal, who was a Knoxville native and 43-year stroke survivor, the Center is a 73-bed facility nationally recognized for its treatment of stroke, spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. The Center is dedicated to people with disabilities who are learning to become as independent as they possibly can.Over the last 33 years, this prestigious golf tournament has raised almost $6 million in net proceeds to support the many programs and services of the rehab center. The tournament brings Tennessee professional golfers together with amateurs from across the U.S. for a worthwhile cause at one of the state’s top courses.
Our world is a different place now. All of us are working to safely adapt and thrive amid the constraints and guidelines necessary to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We hope that you are staying safe and healthy.
Even as COVID-19 has challenged us all to find new ways of working and living, the other health care needs of our community have not stopped. Some of our friends and neighbors are still battling cancer, strokes, and other devastating illnesses. Babies are still being born. People are still learning to walk and talk again after traumatic brain injuries. And we are committed to helping them recover with your support.
Within the confines of current CDC and health department guidelines, we are so looking forward to inviting you to join us in making a difference in the health of our communities. We have had to cancel and/or postpone several events this spring and summer, and fund raising revenue for our hospitals and health care services has suffered. Now, we are excited to be planning for both outdoor and indoor fundraising events to begin. Our outdoor golf tournaments and 5k runs are moving forward, as are fall indoor events such as the Morristown-Hamblen gala and Peninsula’s Artsclamation! fine art sale. All are being structured with a strong overlay of safety and flexibility.
We need the support of our volunteers, sponsors and communities to be successful and we pledge to offer you a safe way to partner with us.
