Mabel Hotz founded the Junior Girls’ golf program in Oklahoma. Under her leadership, the program would become the largest junior girls’ golf program in the nation.
Mabel served the game of golf in many capacities. She was appointed to the USGA National Junior Girls’ Tournament Committee, serving 10 years. Mabel was instrumental in bringing the National Junior Girls’ Tournament to Tulsa for the first time.
Mabel is also credited with bringing the Women’s Trans-National Championship to Tulsa. At the time, the Trans-National was one of the largest women’s amateur golf tournaments in the world.
Mabel was an active golfer herself, but more importantly, an enthusiastic participant in life. Her love and dedication to golf could only be surpassed by that for her family and the civic duties she so often performed for the city of Tulsa.
