The Kansas Golf Hall of Fame was founded in 1991 to honor Kansas men and women – amateurs and professionals – who have made outstanding contributions to the game of golf. Hall of Fame inductions are now made in even-numbered years. The Kansas Golf Foundation operates the Hall of Fame as part of its mission to Promote the Future and Preserve the History of Golf in Kansas.
To be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame, a person must meet one of the following: (1) have been a Kansas resident for at least 10 years at any time; (2) have been a Kansas resident during the period of his or her contributions or accomplishments; or (3) in the judgment of the Kansas Golf Foundation Board of Trustees, have substantial ties or connections to the State of Kansas. Nominees will be judged based on the general public perception of the nominee, and his or her public record of achievements and contributions to the game of golf.
Nominees meeting the criteria are submitted by the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which consists of the Trustees of the Kansas Golf Foundation and representatives of golf organizations and news media from around the state. Normally, between one and two nominees are inducted, but not more than one from any category in any induction year. A candidate must receive votes from a majority of the Selection Committee in order to remain as a nominee for future consideration.
The next induction year will be 2018. Nominations for the Class of 2018 Hall of Fame may be made anytime prior to January 12, 2018. To obtain a nomination form you must have Adobe Reader (Adobe Reader Download). This downloadable nomination form may be filled out and emailed by clicking "submit via email" at the bottom of the application, or by downloading and sending all supporting materials to the Kansas Golf Foundation, 1201 Wakarusa Drive, Suite B5, Lawrence, KS 66049 (785-842-4833 ex. 205).
