History

The Georgia Golf Hall of Fame was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly in 1982.  Headquartered in Augusta, the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame began inducting members in 1989 and held an induction ceremony in Augusta annually through 2009.  During the 2010 legislative session, the GGHOF Authority and Commission was abolished. The Marietta-based Georgia State Golf Association then entered into an agreement with the Georgia Department of Economic Development to manage the ongoing activities associated with the Hall of Fame. Working in accordance with the wishes of the former GGHOF Board of Directors, the GSGA is now authorized to host the annual induction banquet and store and display Hall of Fame members’ memorabilia.  The Induction Ceremony was revived in 2011 at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, and is now held annually in January.
