Putt Your Heart Into It! Have Fun and Support the Michael Jarrett Scholarship Fund

Whether you're a pro or a duffer, you're invited to putt for a great cause: the newly established Michael Jarrett Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will be awarded to a UT Arlington student who exhibits strong leadership values and was created to honor Mike's legacy of leadership, passion for community, and famously fantastic golf game.


The first-ever Michael Jarrett “Be Like Mike" Putting Competition presented by Worthington National Bank is coming up on Monday September 26 from 4-6 p.m. at Shady Valley Country Club. The competition will be held after the Greater Arlington Chamber 18th Annual Golf Tournament on the putting greens outside the clubhouse. 

Try your hand at the long putt! The closer you get, the better the prizes, including:

  • 5 ft circle – 2 free street tacos from Cartel Taco Bar
  • 3 ft circle – Downtown insulated aluminum cup
  • Hole in one - $50 Downtown Arlington gift card

There will also be music, games, and a bar cart!
