posthumously. Hollins was one of greatest sportswom- en of her era and the driving force behind the creation of the Cypress Point Club and Pasatiempo. Hollins was born in


with approximately 300 courses to his name world- wide. Palmer was unable to be at the ceremony due to a previous commitment at one of his many charitable endeavors. Dick Ferris served golf as


chairman of the PGA Tour’s Policy Board for 20 years. The Sacramento native is the former president and CEO of United Airlines and now serves as co-chairman of the Pebble Beach Com- pany. “We look at ourselves as stewards, not owners of a national treasure,” Ferris said. “We want the company to be profitable so we can sustain it. We work every day to make it better.” Peter Ueberroth is one


of the true renaissance men


of American business. His leadership during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los An-


Marion Hollins


geles resulted in a surplus of a quarter million dollars. He served as Major League Baseball Commissioner from 1984 to 1989 followed by a period as chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee. Ueberroth was Time magazine’s “Man of the Year” in 1984 and now serves as co-chairman of the Pebble Beach Company. “It benefitted the community, it benefit- ted golf,” Ueberroth said regarding the purchase of Pebble Beach. “It wasn’t about business or profits, it was about using golf for the betterment of society.”


MARION HOLLINS The Hall of Fame also inducted Marion Hollins


1892, to a socially promi- nent and wealthy family on Long Island. She was the consummate athlete, proficient in golf, tennis, marksmanship, swimming and car racing. The plus- one handicap was also an expert equestrienne. In 1917, she was ap- pointed to the first USGA women’s committee, later becoming its chairperson. In 1922, Hollins created the Women’s National Golf Club in New York. On the West Coast she then joined with Samuel Morse in making Pebble Beach a premier destination. She established the men and women’s Pebble Beach Golf Championships in 1923 and would later win the event seven times. Besides her golf prowess, Hollins was at her best in golf architecture as illustrated by the story of her dropping a ball and taking a swing that would change the 16th hole at Cypress Point Club from a par 4 to the world’s most famous par 3 against the advice of Alister MacKen- zie, who thought the hole would be too difficult. Her architectural judgment at Pasatiempo and Cypress Point laid the groundwork for MacKenzie to become Bobby Jones’ architect at Augusta National. In 1932, Hollins was se-


lected as captain of the first Curtis Cup team, leading the U.S to victory. She died in 1944 at the age of 52. –Staff Reports
