MGA HALL OF FAME – The MGA Hall of Fame has been in existence since 2005. Only the MGA Board of Directors have been able to nominate people. Starting in 2021 anyone may nominate people to be considered.

A committee of the MGA Board members will then consider the nominees for induction. The committee will then forward those candidates deemed worthy to the entire Board of Directors of the MGA for voting. A two-thirds vote will still be necessary for a candidate to be inducted.

One of these categories must be met: A distinguished amateur career, A distinguished professional career, Distinguished service to the game of golf in the state of Missouri

COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Current and immediate past-president of the MGA and geographic representatives of the state of Missouri, as chosen by the President. (SE, SW, KC, StL)
