Hall of Fame Members
The Professional Golfers’ Association of Canada, the second oldest and third largest professional golf association in the world, is proud to introduce the PGA of Canada Hall of Fame.
Launched in January 2014 as part of Canada Night at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., with the induction of the inaugural class, the virtual hall of fame celebrates PGA of Canada members—both past and present.
“The virtual PGA of Canada Hall of Fame is dedicated to our members—the men and women who have been the foundation of the Association since our inception in 1911,” says Warren Crosbie, PGA of Canada Hall of Fame Committee Chair. “It is a means to preserve our history, celebrate PGA of Canada members and, communicate our story to the public.”
With an inaugural Class of 26 Members, the PGA of Canada Hall of Fame honors many of the most dedicated Golf Professionals in the history of Canada. Dating back to the first elected Captain (modern day President) in George Cumming, a popular pro and teacher from The Toronto Golf Club, the Hall of Fame website will ensure the proud history of the PGA of Canada lives on forever.
“The PGA of Canada Hall of Fame will undoubtedly celebrate our association’s proud history from our humble beginnings more than 100-years ago, to our present day success stories,” says PGA of Canada President Gregg Schubert. “I speak on behalf of the PGA of Canada’s 3,700 members when I say that I can not wait for the unveiling of both the hall of fame’s virtual site and the inaugural class this January, 2014 at Canada Night,” adding, “it will be a proud moment for all PGA of Canada members when the curtain lifts on this highly anticipated virtual hall of fame site.”
