Waynesboro golf pro, Kathy Murphy, is to be inducted into LPGA hall of fame

Waynesboro Country Club golf teaching pro, Kathy Murphy, was recently chosen in the 2020 inductee class of the LPGA Golf Professionals Hall of Fame.

Although Murphy, 68, is new to the WCC she brings with her experience from prominent golf courses across the country from Vermont to Arizona and Florida to Baltimore. She is an LPGA Master Professional who was the resident golf professional at Palm-Aire Country Club in Sarasota, Fla. and the head professional at The Plantation Golf & CC in Venice, Florida where in 1989, she hosted the LPGA Professionals National Championship.

“I was thrilled to be the head pro at Plantation Country Club for many years but working at Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Arizona in 1995 which was the home of Arizona State University golf teams, is where I got hooked up with the Phoenix crowd and that really boosted my knowledge and skills,” Murphy explained. “The other two members of our 2020 hall of fame class, we actually worked together on LPGA projects and our own coaching programs; ASU had such a great reputation for elite players and aspiring touring professionals.”
