Wall of Fame

In 2008, as part of the Club's 50th Anniversary celebrations, Whitevale Golf Club created a Wall of Fame, with eight inaugural inductees. While our Club has been home to hundreds of high-achieving amateur and professional golfers over the years, these eight individuals have excelled at an exceptional level either during or subsequent to their years as members, helping to raise awareness of Whitevale Golf Club throughout the province, the country, and in some cases, around the world.
