MPGA Ron Self Award

The Ron Self Memorial Award, an engraved State of Minnesota plaque, is presented at the fall banquet to the person who most symbolizes, through their active involvement, the enthusiastic spirit of pubic golf in Minnesota.

It is named in remembrance of Ron Self, who was an active Executive Committeeman in the 1970's.

It is the Association's most prestigious and honored award, often serving as a lifetime achievement award.

The recipient is nominated from the at-large ranks of the association.
