Update: The 2020 Jimmy Rane Charity Golf Tournament & Banquet is canceled due to COVID-19. Mark your dates for the 2021 event: May 20 and 21, 2021.
The Jimmy Rane Charity Golf Tournament banquet events are always very special, and this year promises to be another very meaningful evening. Instead of one inspirational guest speaker, we will celebrate the legacy of someone very special to all of us – University of Georgia legend Coach Vince Dooley. Several great names will speak for a few moments about this great man’s impact on their lives and their careers, and we’ll all have a chance to hear their unique perspective. Be sure to join us May 14-15 for what promises to be another incredible event.
About the event
Since its first event in 2001, the Jimmy Rane Charity Golf Tournament has earned a reputation as an action-packed two days of good times, great athletes, quality golf and giving back. It’s a fun and unique opportunity to partner with the best of the best in basketball and football, as well as celebrities from TV and film, for a worthwhile cause. The event includes a silent auction, reception and scholarship awards banquet featuring an accomplished guest speaker. Some of our past speakers have included a decorated Navy SEAL and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell, ESPN Analyst Kirk Herbstreit, NFL’s Terry Bradshaw, MVP Peyton Manning, and Hall of Fame Coach Don Shula. The event also involves a round of golf with a celebrity athlete.
The annual tournament is our single biggest fundraiser, and with its success, the Jimmy Rane Foundation has been able to provide 422 college scholarships to deserving students throughout the years, and we hope to provide many more scholarships in the years to come.

"Nothing can match my two most important athletic awards: my diplomas."
Robert Montgomery "Bob" Knight, nicknamed "The General", won 902 NCAA Division I men's college basketball games, most all-time at the time of his retirement and currently third all-time behind his former player, Mike Krzyzewski of Duke and Jim Boeheim of Syracuse. He was the head coach at Army (1965–1971), Indiana (1971–2000) and Texas Tech (2001–2008).
While at Indiana, Knight led his teams to three NCAA championships, one National Invitation Tournament (NIT) championship, and 11 Big Ten Conference championships. He received the National Coach of the Year honor four times and the Big Ten Coach of the Year honor eight times. In 1984, he coached the USA men's Olympic team to a gold medal, becoming one of only three basketball coaches to win an NCAA title, NIT title, and an Olympic gold medal.
Knight was one of college basketball's most successful and innovative coaches, having perfected and popularized the motion offense. He has also been praised for running clean programs (none of his teams were ever sanctioned by the NCAA for recruiting violations) and graduating most of his players.
In 2008, Knight joined ESPN as a men's college basketball studio analyst during Championship Week and for coverage of the NCAA Tournament. For the 2008–09 season, he joined ESPN as a part-time color commentator as well as continuing his studio analyst duties.
Born in Massillon, Ohio, Knight grew up in Orrville and began his career as a player at Orrville High School. He continued under Basketball Hall of Fame coach Fred Taylor at Ohio State in 1958 and played forward on the 1960 Ohio State Buckeyes team that won the NCAA Championship and featured future Hall of Fame players John Havlicek and Jerry Lucas. Knight graduated from OSU with a degree in history and government in 1962.
