Trusted Choice Big I Jr Golf

Five Arkansas Junior Golfers Headed to National Tournament.

Jonesboro's RidgePointe Country Club was the site of the Annual Trusted Choice Big "I" Junior Classic on June 25-26. Despite the 100 plus degree heat index on Thursday and Friday, more than 50 of the state's top junior golfers competed in the state tournament to win the opportunity to play in the prestigious Trusted Choice Big "I" Junior Classic to be held August 3-6 at the nationally known Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.


This outstanding junior golf tournament is made possible through the year-round fundraising efforts of the IIAA's Young Agents Committee. As always, a special thanks to long-time tournament director "Bubba" Barnett  of Stephens Insurance, LLC, in Jonesboro.​
