Iredell Golf Classic

Sign up now to become a player and/or sponsor of our 2023 golf classic.

Thursday, May 18: 1:00 PM
Friday, May 19, 9:00 AM

This cornerstone fundraising event is dedicated to furthering the dreams of our nursing heroes through The Institute for Nursing Excellence and Innovation. Over the years we have been able to assist over 500 individuals with educational endeavors, specialty certifications, and nursing leadership development. 

As an added bonus for participants, this year Jeff Crittenden (right), world long drive champion, will be raising the stakes at a designated hole, where you’ll be able to have him take your drive shot.

The Institute affirms the role and importance of nursing now and into the future for Iredell Health System. The primary goal of the Institute is nursing education with an emphasis on earning higher degrees such as the Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Funds are also used for specialty certifications such as CCRN for Critical Care Nurses, continuing education to enhance clinical and leadership skills, and more. Ultimately, these funds will result in continuous improvement of patient safety and quality of care to support our mission. That is why it is so important to support The Institute for Nursing.

Deadline to register is April 19, 2023.

Register to become a sponsor.


Jeff Crittenden began playing golf in college and several years later decided to make a career of it and became a professional golfer. He has played professionally and won several mini-tours. He has also taught golf for such companies as Grand Cypress Academy of Golf, Swing the Thing Golf Schools, Precision Golf Schools, ESPN Golf Schools, and Golf Digest Golf Schools where he worked with some of the most prestigious names in golf instruction – Hank Haney, Fred Griffin, Rick McCord, Ed Bowe, and Dick Farley.

In 2006, Jeff realized he had a true talent for strength and distance in golf and decided to try his hand at long drive. In long drive, he quickly found his calling and within a year was competing professionally around the country and around the world just a few years later.

Currently, Crittenden competes in fourteen or more long drive events per year. He also performs 25 or more exhibition and trick shot shows per year. It’s his job to hit the golf ball as far and as hard as possible while remaining within a very specific grid. In 2019, at the age of 48, Jeff won his second (2017 & 2019) World Long Drive (WLD) Masters Division Championship in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
