“It’s an honor anytime a Hall of Fame invites you in. I’m very proud of it. In fact, I’ve got the plaque the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame gave me when I was inducted on display at Colbert Hills, the golf course for Kansas State University.”
–Jim Colbert, 2002
Welcome to the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame. The mission of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame is to celebrate and bring awareness to players, administrators, benefactors, groups, instructors, teams, and other worthy golfers who have served the game of golf in Las Vegas in a positive and meaningful way, whether through performance on the course, volunteerism, financial support, promotion, or other dedicated service. And to preserve the deep history of golf in Las Vegas.
The museum-quality home exhibit is located at Las Vegas National Golf Club and is open to the public for free during regular business hours of the course. A 16-person committee made up of Las Vegas golf professionals, media, amateur association leaders, and Hall of Fame members, oversees the management of all aspects of the Hall.
“It’s a wonderful honor to be in the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame. There’s so much great golf history in Las Vegas, and I’m very privileged to be a part of that storied history. It’s terrific and this is one of the great honors of my life.” — Dwaine Knight, 2009
