Greg Kunkel


Inducted in 2015

The longtime caddie manager at Sunset Ridge in Northfield, Illinois, Greg Kunkel has been a steadfast advocate for caddies and their role in the game of golf. Kunkel began his caddie career at Sunset Ridge Country Club in 1986 under the tutelage of the club's longtime caddie manager, Tony Battistello, who himself was inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame in 1999. Sunset Ridge’s longstanding support for caddies dates back to its earliest days; and thanks to Kunkel, it has maintained its reputation as one of the finest nationally recognized caddie programs. As caddie manager, Kunkel helped shape the lives of thousands of Sunset Ridge caddies, many of whom went on to earn the Evans Scholarship. 


For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Greg Kunkel was inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame in 2015.
