The lives of Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dinah Shore were honored last week as the trio was inducted into the Southern California Golf Association Hall of Fame at a luncheon in Universal City. Family members of all three legendary figures were on hand to accept the inductions in front of a crowd of more than 250 people.
"Crosby, Hope and Shore all helped popularize the game in Southern California and the whole country," said Bob Fischer, SCGA board member and chair of the Hall of Fame committee. "They also supported three of the most successful professional tournaments in the Southland. We felt inducting the three of them into the same SCGA class was appropriate."
Any golfers out there? Any fans of classic artists like Crosby, Hope and Shore? That was quite an era.
