Nominations for the 2019 Class of the Texas Golf Hall of Fame opened Friday, March 1. Texas golf fans are urged to nominate qualified individuals according to the guidelines on the Hall’s website at www.texasgolfhof.org.
Nominations, which can only be made online, will be accepted until April 26. Nominees will be reviewed for eligibility and voted on by living Hall members, the Texas Golf Hall of Fame Board of Directors, and designated Texas golf media members.
The 2019 Class will be announced in July.
“We encourage the public to nominate individuals who have contributed to the betterment of golf,” said Loren Singletary, Chairman of the Texas Golf Hall of Fame Board of Directors. “The input we get from fans is invaluable. Having an open nomination period ensures feedback from all corners of the state.”
Nominations for individuals and courses can be made in five categories: Amateur Player, Golf Professional/Teacher, Lifetime Achievement, Professional Player, and the Texas Registry of Historic Golf Courses.
This will be the Texas Golf Hall of Fame’s tenth class to be inducted since the Hall’s reconstitution in 2009.
The Induction Dinner will take place at the historic San Antonio Country Club on Monday, October 14, 2019. The 2019 Class will be commemorated on a granite marker, joining other greats along the Texas Golf Walk of Fame at Brackenridge Park Golf Course earlier that day.
Last year’s inductees were Chad Campbell, Billy Ray Brown, Bill Moretti, Bill Macatee and the Austin Country Club.
