Inducted in 2013
A former caddie at Everett Country Club in Seattle, WA, George Holland went on to serve as president of the Washington State Golf Association and a Director of the Western Golf Association where he continued to advocate on behalf of caddies.
George Holland was introduced to caddying at the age of 13 when he began working at Everett Country Club in Seattle. He went on to win several state and regional championships before playing collegiately at the University of Washington. Upon graduating, Holland began a long career in the insurance industry. He served for four years as president of the Washington State Golf Association and has been a Director of the Western Golf Association since 1994. During George’s tenure as a WGA Director, Seattle GC, graduated more than 30 Evans Scholars. Much of that success is traced to Holland’s support of the club’s caddie program, mentorship of the young caddies and Evans Scholars, his work raising funds, and general stewardship. He was inducted into the Pacific Northwest Golf Association Hall of Fame in 1997 in recognition of his service to golf in the region.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Holland earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
