Tim Jackson

The Southern Golf Association Hall of Fame was established in 1972 by the Board of Directors of the Southern Golf Association. The following qualifications were established as criteria for nomination of an inductee, but an inductee does not have to meet every single criteria. The candidate must have: 1) Outstanding competitive career; 2) Outstanding administrative contributions; 3) Outstanding promotional contributions; 4) The candidate must have met the above criteria while a member of a Southern Golf Association Member Club. The Southern Golf Association Hall of Fame is unique in that it does not necessarily induct a member each year, nor does it select multiple inductees.


In 1999, at Ocean Forest Golf Club in Sea Island, Georgia, Tim Jackson of Germantown, Tennessee was inducted into the Southern Golf Association Hall of Fame. While Tim's accomplishments and achievements in golf touch on each of the above criteria, having served and continuing to serve as a volunteer and director of the Tennessee Golf Association, he is honored more as a competitor than an administrator. To this end, we list for you the highlights of his competitive career:
