35th Jernigan Memorial Golf Tournament

University Health Care Foundation’s first president, Harry W. Jernigan Jr., had two passions: University Hospital and golf. For 34 years, the Jernigan Memorial Golf Tournament has raised funds to support financial assistance to patients, employee continuing education, and capital improvements to University Hospital. This year, tournament proceeds will help fund the renovation of the Harry W. Jernigan Cancer Center at University Hospital.
