2023 Yard Dawg Classic

21st Annual Yard Dawg Classic

22 Teams played in the 21st annual Yard Dawg Classic. It was one of the best ever!

Jimmy McPherson and Jake Sorrells had the MSU Golf Course in perfect playing conditions, the weather cooperated and everyone enjoyed seeing the renovations since last playing the course. Special thanks to Jim Basel and his staff for coordinating the tournament. Great job!

Special thanks of course to our loyal sponsors. It is absolutely impossible to hold an event like the Yard Dawg without them. Please remember them when making purchases for your business.

AND A BIG SHOUT-OUT to all the MSU alumni who came and supported the turf program at State! It was a pleasure to see so many former students.
