Each year the Oregon Golf Association honors the OGA Volunteer of the Year during Volunteer Appreciation Day. The 2019 award went to Steve Hagen for his outstanding work over the years.
Steve Carr, Mary Gilbert and Roger Mink were also nominated for the 2019 award and recognized as honorees at the annual ceremony.
The Oregon Golf Association and Oregon Junior Golf would not be able to conduct Championships, USGA Qualifiers and rate courses without the dedication of our volunteers. A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers for all the time they donate to amateur golf in Oregon and SW Washington!
** The award is named after Bill Worden.
