Hole-in-one in Tennessee earns free filet mignon
As my loyal fan will remember (yes, that’s singular on purpose), in May I was fortunate enough to to card my first ace. It was a 167-yard par 3 at King’s Creek Golf Club, just south of Nashville, Tennessee.
I have to admit that, at the time, I was sort of disappointed that my first ace came at a course so far from home, which I might never play again.
But then I got an e-mail telling me that, pursuant to a 2013 agreement between the Tennessee PGA and Omaha Steaks, every golfer who cards an attested hole-in-one on a hole longer than 150 yards at a Tennessee PGA member course receives a free box of four filet mignon steaks from Omaha Steaks.
Well, fire up the grill and pour the wine!
Tonight, I finally had the opportunity to enjoy these exquisitely tender medallions of prime beef. I wrapped them in bacon, added some seasoning, and grilled them to a medium rare. Paired with a pilaf of Minnesota wild rice from the Red Lake Indian Reservation, a baked zucchini topped with bread crumbs and several cheeses, and a 2011 Borsao Garnacha, I challenge any ace to taste as good.
Next time, I’m going for a new car. (But if I win some more steaks, I’ll be more than happy!)
