The KGA’s Virgil Parker Award, created in 1997, is given at the discretion of the KGA’s Executive Committee to those individuals that have made an impact on golf and golfers in Kansas through significant volunteer efforts.  The award is named after a man that was a volunteer leader of the KGA even during a successful amateur golfer career in the Wichita area.  Virgil Parker was an expert on the rules of golf, a president of the KGA, and a member of the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame.
