The History of Golf Inc.

History

It was an idea fostered by Floyd Farley, a former golf professional and course designer, the late U.C. Ferguson, Jr., a long-time director of golf at Lincoln Park Golf Course, and the late Wally Wallis, a golf writer for The Daily Oklahoman.

In 1993, Golf Digest cited our program and GOLF Inc, as the No. 1 municipality in the United States for its promotion of amateur and its junior program.
