USBGA Hall of Fame

Hof_tropyWhen an organization has met the test of time and created history, then it needs a Hall of Fame to document the accomplishments.

The United States Blind Golf Association has met and exceeded those requirements and is therefore proud to introduce its Hall of Fame Inductees. It has been over half a century since the first 10 blind golfers met and founded the association. During that time golfers, coaches, and friends of the USBGA have made significant contributions that will be showcased in the United States Blind Golf Association Hall of Fame.

Inductees into the Hall of Fame are honored for their performance or service to the organization. Their accomplishments must be achieved over a period of time. The people or associations honored in this Hall of Fame are the reason the United States Blind Golf Association has successfully held a national championship for over six decades. Their talent and dedication helped inspire others to join and grow the organization.

The United States Blind Golf Association adopted a motto years ago. The motto states: “You Don’t Have To See It To Tee It”. When one learns about the golfers in the Hall of Fame, they discover that the inductees truly exemplify the message in the motto. The same blind golfers will be quick to point out that none of their success would be possible without coaches or friends of the USBGA.
