Inducted in 2011
Dennis Cone founded The Professional Caddie Association and the Caddie Hall of Fame in 1999, and has worked tirelessly to celebrate caddies.
Cone established the Professional Caddies Association and the Caddie Hall of Fame to celebrate professional caddies and pay homage to those who played a special role in the history of the game. Cone worked to provide young men and women the opportunity to learn and grow through the game of golf and through caddying. Cone was instrumental in inducting such legends as Charles “Chick” Evans, Francis Ouimet and Gene Sarazen into the Caddie Hall of Fame. In 2011, Cone entered into an agreement with the Western Golf Association that allowed the organization to administer the Caddie Hall of Fame and continue to honor caddies.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Cone earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
