Sally Davis Wins 2012 Lew Frank Award


Congratulations to our own Sally Davis on winning the 2012 Lew Frank Award!

The Tennessee Golf Foundation’s committee selected Sally Davis in 2012 for her dedication and impact on many of their key programs: The First Tee of Nashville, the TGA Junior Tour, the Ace & Eagle Academy, Tennessee Middle School Golf Association as well as her willingness to host events for the foundation's partner organizations, the Tennessee Golf Association and Tennessee Section PGA. The success of TGF as a junior golf and youth development organization has some key people across the state that help them reach their goals to help grow the game and build better citizens in the process. The Tennessee Golf Foundation's relationship with Sally Davis and Metro Parks has had a big impact on TGF's program participants and improving lives in the community.


Since 2003, the Tennessee Golf Foundation gives out the Lew Frank Award, honoring the general manager or golf administrator that best exemplifies the same supportive spirit for the Tennessee Golf Foundation and Golf House Tennessee that Lew Frank exhibited during his lifetime.


Lew was the general manager of Memphis Country Club for many years and during the critical formative years of the Tennessee Golf Foundation. Lew gave the foundation access to the club when it was needed for fund raising or awareness building. Lew's willingness to help was one of the catalysts that helped get the TGF get to where it is today.
