The PGA of Canada Hall of Fame will launch at Canada Night at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando with the induction of its inaugural class.
“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,” said PGA of Canada hall committee chair Warren Crosbie.
“It is a means to preserve our history, celebrate PGA of Canada members and communicate our story to the public,” he added.
The virtual hall of fame will feature a number of web-based technologies that will not only celebrate the PGA of Canada and its members, but also educate and inform website visitors.
“The soon-to-be launched 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,” said 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 at Canada Night,” he added.
The PGA of Canada Hall of Fame virtual site will feature inducted members, past association presidents, honourary members and directors, Master Professionals, a champions room and a number of digital features.
