On October 4th, long-time golf administrator and former Golf Canada and Golf Quebec president Jacques Nols was inducted into the Quebec Golf Hall of Fame at Kanawaki Golf Club, Nols’ home club in Montreal.
Nols, who for a five-year period was one of seven people on the Rules and Decisions Committee which governs the Rules of Golf in the World, is one of the founders of the highly successful CN Future Links program which encourages and supports young Canadian golfers to advance through the various levels of sport development.
Still very active in the governance of the rules of golf in Canada, Jacques has refereed at 19 Canadian Opens, the Masters, US Open, Open Championship, World Amateur, countless Canadian Amateur events, and the Presidents Cup.
In 2004, the Golf Canada presented Nols with its Distinguished Services Award and recently, Kanawaki presented him with its Honouree of the Year Award.
Other members of the Quebec Golf Hall of Fame include Graham Cooke, Adrien Bigras, Jocelyn Bourassa, Judy Darling-Evans, and Mary Ann Hayward.
