World Golf Hall of Fame Celebrates Women Champions in New Exhibit

Posted by: Cathy Eng in Golf, News, WGV Amenities, WGV Events

The World Gold Hall of Fame recently kicked off its newest exhibit “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years.” The exhibit celebrates the sport’s most accomplished female champions from the early 1940s to present day, including highlights of 28 Hall of Fame members (as well as potential members).

The exhibit features plenty of treasures from decades of women’s professional golf. Visitors can see a Women’s Titleholder’s Championship green jacket presented in 1965 to Kathy Whitworth, who holds a record 88 tour wins (more than any other professional golfer—male or female).

The exhibit also showcases the careers of other Hall of Fame members like Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez and Babe Zaharias, as well as present-day major champions like Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park and Lorena Ochoa.

Don’t miss special items like the robe given to Amy Alcott after her ceremonial jump into Poppie’s Pond after winning the 1991 Dinah Shore Championship (a tradition that she actually started in 1988)!

The exhibit is a fascinating and inspiring look into the world of women’s professional golf spanning the past eight decades. For more information, contact the World Golf Hall of Fame at (904) 940-4000 or visit http://www.worldgolfhalloffame.org/.
