Texas Golf HOF Reschedules Class of 2020 Induction Event
The Texas Golf Hall of Fame recently announced that the previously postponed formal 2020 induction dinner has been rescheduled for Monday, August 9 and will be held at the River Crest Country Club in Fort Worth. The event was originally slated for October 2020 but was postponed as a cautionary measure due to COVID-19.
Last July the Hall announced its 2020 Class of Inductees that are to be honored during this formal induction ceremony that is open to the public.
2020 Texas Hall of Fame Inductees:
- Professional Player: Angela Stanford
- Amateur Player: Hank Kuehne
- Lifetime Achievement: Verne Lundquist
- Golf Professional / Teacher: Mike Wright
- Golf Professional / Teacher: Dow Finsterwald, Jr.
- Texas Registry of Historic Golf Courses: Oak Hills Country Club
In addition to the upcoming induction dinner, each of the Inductees has been commemorated on a granite marker on the prestigious Texas Golf Walk of Fame at historic Brackenridge Park Golf Course in San Antonio.
“We are very excited to finally give this class of inductees the celebration that they deserve!” said Texas Golf Hall of Fame Board Chairman, Reid Meyers. “These are extraordinary times, and we are fortunate to be able to slowly return to the normalcy of life. We hope you join us in celebrating the accomplishments and contributions of this class to the State of Texas and the great game of Golf.”
This will be the Texas Golf Hall of Fame’s eleventh class to be inducted since the Hall’s reconstitution in 2009. Public nominations made online were voted on by living Hall members, the Texas Golf Hall of Fame Board of Directors, and designated Texas golf media members.
