LAS VEGAS – July 12, 2022 – TPC Summerlin, a private 18-hole golf course located just minutes from the famed Las Vegas Strip and host to the PGA TOUR’s Shriners Children’s Open, congratulates Dale Hahn, Director of Golf Course Maintenance Operations on being selected to join the 2022 Class of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame.
The Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame is set to induct Hahn on October 1 at TPC Summerlin as the official kickoff for the PGA TOUR’s Shriners Children’s Open taking place Oct. 3-9, 2022.
“I’m honored to be elected to join such a prestigious group of trailblazers in the golf industry,” said Hahn. “This is an achievement of a lifetime, and I am very appreciative of the opportunities provided to me through my role at TPC Summerlin.”
Before joining TPC Summerlin, Hahn was the superintendent at Morgan Run and Pala Mesa Resorts. Those experiences have helped shape his passion for agronomy, leading to a successful career at TPC Summerlin, overseeing renovations along with tournaments and preparing the course for valued members and TOUR players.
“We’re so lucky to have had someone like Dale lead our agronomy team for the past two decades,” said Brian Hawthorne, TPC Summerlin’s General Manager. “He’s extremely deserving of being elected to the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame and has been vital to the operations here at TPC Summerlin.”
Since 1991, the Las Vegas Hall of Fame has inducted 61 members – of those, 13 were club professionals and two were golf course superintendents. For this year’s Class of 2022, Hahn was selected out of 80 individuals and organizations in Las Vegas by the Hall of Fame selection committee who meets six times a year to have open discussions about each nominee and their impact on the community.
“We don’t want to award someone for just doing their job,” said Joe Kelly, President of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame. “We want to honor individuals that do an outstanding job, making a difference in the community outside of work and are involved in their organization. We are pleased to honor someone whose golf facility is proud to have them represent their club and Dale Hahn checks all those boxes.”
