The Georgia State Golf Association wishes to obtain nominations from the general public for candidates to be considered for induction into the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame.

To be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame, a candidate should:

  • Be a current or former resident of Georgia for a reasonable period of time;
  • Have participated in golf as a competitor or contributor to the game; and
  • Have brought honor to Georgia and himself or herself with golf accomplishments in Georgia and/or elsewhere

Information About Candidates - The process by which an individual’s name progresses from initial nomination to induction begins with completing the nomination form (see box above). The information gleaned from this form can determine the stature or priority given to a person’s candidacy. Those wishing to place names into nomination are encouraged to provide as much accurate data as possible about the individual. Fields are mandatory for the Nominee Information and Nominated By sections and exceptions can be considered by the committee.

Hall of Fame Committee - This committee meets periodically to oversee the GSGA's management of the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. The purpose of this committee is to develop the criteria and make the selections for each inductee class of the Hall of Fame; assist the GSGA staff with the planning, sponsorship sales and table sales of the annual induction banquet; and to provide advice to the GSGA staff with respect to displays, promotions and other activities in the development of a communication plan for the Hall of Fame and its members.

Deadline for submission of completed nomination forms for the following induction is March 15. Nominations are valid for 10 years.
