Michigan Golf Hall of Fame Needs New Home

The Michigan Golf Hall of Fame's collection of plaques, portraits and memorabilia commemorating 98 members recently vacated its most recent home in Troy, and is seeking a new site.

A location in any part of Michigan will be considered by the Hall of Fame's board of directors. Golf facilities, public venues, office complexes and others are welcome to offer a creative and mutually beneficial solution to finding a new space.

The collection includes memorabilia related to Horton Smith - the first winner of the Masters Tournament - and professional standouts like Dave Hill, Dan Pohl and Meg Mallon traces the history of the game in Michigan as well as its most prominent players, benefactors and contributors.

Rick Smith, the Gaylord-based golf course designer and instructor, Flint-area PGA professionals Larry Mancour and Jack Seltzer, and Grand Rapids amateur Jack VanEss are in the 2012 class of inductees. In May of 2013 another class will be selected for the hall of fame.
