A person must meet one of the following: (1) Kansas residence for at least 10 years at any time; (2) Kansas residence during the period of his or her contributions or accomplishments; or (3) in the judgment of the Kansas Golf Foundation Board of Trustees, have substantial ties or connections to the State of Kansas. Nominees will be judged based on the public perception of the nominee, and his or her public record of achievements and contributions to the game of golf.
How to Nominate Someone for the Hall of Fame
Nominations may be made by anyone, using the online nomination form below. All nominations are first reviewed by the Foundation Trustees to determine eligibility. Nominees meeting the criteria are then submitted to the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which consists of the Trustees of the Kansas Golf Foundation and representatives of golf organizations and news media from around the state. Normally, between one and two nominees are inducted, but not more than one from any category in any induction year. A candidate must receive votes from a majority of the Selection Committee in order to remain as a nominee for future consideration.
