Tomorrow is the big day! We are so excited to honor all of our 2021 WNYPGA Section Award Winners!

Today we would like to highlight our 2021 WNY Hall of Fame Inductee, Chip Clover, PGA!

The WNYPGA Hall of Fame recognizes extraordinary careers and pays tribute to those PGA Professionals and Amateurs who served the golf industry in an exemplary manner, set standards for promoting the game throughout our communities, and/or will long be recognized and respected for their illustrious playing accomplishments. By dedicating themselves to the game of golf, WNYPGA Hall of Fame Members contributed in a special way to the growth of golf and heritage of professionalism. Throughout his career, Chip has been an outstanding Professional. He has been a longtime member of the WNYPGA Section and has volunteered in many different ways. Most noted, dedicating over 20 years on the WNYPGA Board of Directors, chairing numerous committees and serving as the Section President in 2009 - 2011. One of his greatest accomplishments while serving on the WNYPGA Board of Directors as our Section President was implementing and starting the WNYPGA Foundation - now PGA REACH WNY.

Congratulations Chip!
