Friday is the last day to have nomination forms for the 2021 Saskatchewan Golf Hall of Fame (SGHF) submitted.
Last year with the induction of five individuals the enshrinement list grew to 59 people.
Once elected to the Hall of Fame, nominees are officially inducted at a special ceremony by the Saskatchewan Golf Hall of Fame. The honoured member’s portrait is then enshrined at the Golf Saskatchewan office and available for viewing on the Golf Saskatchewan website.
Each category has certain criteria to be filled before induction will be approved by the committee. For the player division nominees must:
- Be an adult, female/male/individual, of any race, colour or creed, not necessarily living at the time of consideration.
- Be at least, 40 years of age (unless already deceased) at the time of consideration.
- Be a resident, or former resident with substantial connections to Saskatchewan.
- Be an amateur or professional golfer during the period of accomplishments; and
- Be a person who has brought recognition to Saskatchewan primarily through excellence in golf championship play at the international, national, regional, and/or provincial level.
For distinguished service individuals they must meet the following terms:
- Be an adult, male/female/individual, of any race, colour or creed, not necessarily living at the time of consideration.
- Have resided and provided a minimum of 10 years of distinguished service in Saskatchewan when most extraordinary contributions to golf were made.
- Have made a significant contribution to golf in Saskatchewan. However, service to other national, regional, provincial, state or local golf associations may be considered.
- Be selfless and have devoted service “Above and beyond the call of duty.”

In 2020 the induction banquet was cancelled due to COVID-19. The 2021 ceremony is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 18 at Riverside Country Club in Saskatoon.
