The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame is dedicated to the recognition of extraordinary contributions and accomplishments in the game of golf in Canada. Honoured members, which include amateur and professional golfers and builders of the sport, have been inducted on a regular basis since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 1971.
A committee comprised of representatives from Golf Canada, the Canadian Professional Golfer’s Association and Canadian Golf Hall of Fame Honoured Members is responsible for reviewing nominations and selecting inductees at their annual spring meeting
Once elected to the Hall of Fame, nominees are officially inducted at a special ceremony by the Chair of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. The Honoured Member’s portrait is then enshrined at the Hall of Fame, which is housed inside the Leonard E. Shore building, home to the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum.
To be considered for election to the Hall of Fame, the nominee must have made an extraordinary national or international contribution to the game of golf in Canada. These achievements may be in the form of golfing accomplishments, an illustrious golf–related career or some other exceptional contribution to the sport. Nominees may be players, course designers/managers, administrators and others.
Every nomination must be seconded. Individuals may not nominate themselves. Nominations must be made on the attached forms and, together with any supporting documentation, forwarded to:

The Director will inform the nominator of the status of the application following its review by the Selection Committee.
Nominations must be received no later than July 31st to be eligible for selection the following year.
