KCGA Announces 2016 Hall Of Fame Inductees

The Kansas City Golf Association and the Kansas City Golf Foundation recently announced its newest members to the Kansas City Golf Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame committee reviewed five candidates for induction and eventually elected three members, including: James Dalgleish, Marian Gault and Bill Ludwig.

Dalgleish was a major contributor to the Kansas City golf landscape, having part in designing numerous courses. He was nationally known as “The Father of Kansas City Golf” during the 1920s.

Gault’s golf resume is littered with numerous Missouri Women’s Amateur and Kansas City Women’s Match Play titles. In total, she earned five MO Women’s Amateur titles and 15 KC Women’s Match Play championships, all during the span from 1942 to 1960.

Ludwig, a former Board of Directors member of the KCGA (1990-2012), was quite the player in Kansas City and throughout his amateur career. The 1974 Kansas City Match Play champion also added a 1991 Missouri Senior Amateur title and a 1995 Senior Four-ball champion with his partner Jim Round. He was also a 1973 U.S. Open qualifier in addition to qualifying for four separate U.S. Senior Amateur championships.

The trio will be officially inducted into the Kansas City Golf Hall of Fame on Saturday, Nov. 19.
