Jim Entwistle served as Tuscarora’s head golf professional for nearly 35 years. Jim was a graduate of LeMoyne College and strongly believed in the value of education. Although golf was, of course, important to Jim, he believed education was essential to a person’s well being and success. Although Jim passed away in 2000, his memory lives on in the Jim Entwistle Scholarship. Every Spring, during the Jim Entwistle Memorial Day Member-Member, Tuscarora gives a scholarship to a deserving child of a member in Jim’s name.
