Below is the alphabetical list of all members of the World Golf Hall of Fame (see Page 2 for the members listed by year of induction).

Most of the members of the World Golf Hall of Fame were elected on the strength of their accomplishments as tournament golfers. But the Hall also includes administrators, architects, writers and others who were inducted based on their contributions outside of playing the game. If the member is listed by name only below, they were elected as golfers. For members whose election was based primarily on off-course contributions, there is parenthetical notation of their role. If a name appears as a link below, you can click on the name to read a biography of the individual.
