A $35,000 ‘first’ hole-in-one
Farragut’s Jack Walsh wins huge cash prize on No. 14 at Egwani Farms


Jack Walsh of Farragut picked a “valuable” time to nail his first-ever hole-in-one.

Sinking his 155-yard tee shot on the par 3 No. 14 hole at Egwani Farms Golf Course in Rockford, Walsh won $35,000 while participating in the annual Alzheimer’s Association Memory Links Golf Classic Monday, May 1.


“If you’re going to have your first one, that’s a great time to have it,” said Walsh, who was playing in a foursome that included his son, Kevin.

“It was a big surprise.”

Having played golf “over fifty years” and saying his favorite course in Willow Creek in Farragut, Walsh said the May 1 event was his first experience at Egwani Farms

“The course was in excellent shape, the people here were very nice, it was a good experience,” Walsh said. “My son and I will be back to play again.”

Walsh said the only drawback to Egwani were the roar of planes flying overhead from nearby McGhee-Tyson Airport

Walsh said he also received a trophy that turned out to be the wrong gender — a woman golfer — that soon will be replaced.
