World Golf Hall of Fame > Induction  




The Induction Ceremony is the focal point of the golf calendar every other year when new members are welcomed into the Hall of Fame. The Ceremony is broadcast to an international audience.

The Induction process will now be governed by a Selection Commission made up of 16 individuals who will be responsible for electing candidates into the Hall of Fame, with each Inductee needing at least 75 percent of the vote to gain entry.

The new process will include four categories under which an individual may be considered for Induction: Male and Female Competitor Categories and the Veterans and Lifetime Achievement Categories.

New members are recognized in a variety of ways upon their Induction. Inductees receive a special Induction crystal trophy. Bronze plaques for each are added to the Wall of Fame in Shell Hall and personal items are added to their individual lockers in the Members Locker Room. Additionally, special Inductee exhibits are created for display throughout Shell Hall.
