Wisconsin Golf Hall of Fame

Golf House of Wisconsin, 11350 W. Theo Trecker Way
West Allis, WI 53214


The WSGA established a Wisconsin Golf Hall of Fame in 1964 to honor distinguished amateurs for their significant contributions to the game of golf in Wisconsin.  The five charter members of this elite group, all "legends" who made their "mark" in Wisconsin amateur golf circles, were E.P. "Ned" Allis, Dick Cavanagh, Lynford Lardner, Billy Sixty, Sr., and Wilford Wehrle.

In 1975, the WSGA Hall of Fame Committee changed the induction policies to allow professionals, women and public Links players to be considered for the Hall of Fame.  The first female to be inducted was Joyce Ziske Malison.  In 1980, Archie Dadian of Whitnall Park GC, became the first public links player to be elected to the Hall of Fame.  At present, plaques of all inductees, which outline their achievements along with an engraved likeness, are on display at Golf House of Wisconsin in West Allis.

The WSGA Hall of Fame Committee is comprised of WSGA directors, golf professionals, women representatives, public links players and media delegates, who meet annually to review candidates.  Candidate consideration is extended to individuals with outstanding golf records, and to those who have made exceptional contributions to the game of golf.  All candidates must be at least 40 years of age and must receive at least 75% of the committee's votes.  Below are a list of individuals (in order by year of induction).  Each member of the Hall of Fame is linked to their picture, club affiliations and the accomplishments that led to their induction.
