The Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations for the fourth annual Everett Dobson Award – a $5,000 cash award – to recognize an outstanding male or female golfer graduating from an Oklahoma college or university.
The recipient(s) of this Award should exemplify strong citizenship, sportsmanship and character – attributes that the OGHOF believes are engendered by the game of golf. Golf accomplishment will be considered, but it is not the sole or determining factor for this Award.
The recipient will be recognized and given the award at the 2019 Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame Induction Dinner Nov. 24 at Southern Hills Country Club.
The nomination deadline is Aug. 1, 2019. Please email all forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame, 6218 S. Lewis Ave., Suite 200, Tulsa, OK, 74136.
The Everett Dobson Award is named for the Oklahoma City businessman, philanthropist and avid golfer and champion of the game who provided the initial impetus and funding to start the Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame.
Dobson, who played his collegiate golf at Southwestern Oklahoma State and is a former president of the Oklahoma Golf Association, is now the owner of Oak Tree National and was responsible for helping bring the 2014 U.S. Senior Open to Oklahoma.
