Dick Tollette

Beginning his career as a high school teacher, Tollette went on to become a vital member of the Minnesota Section PGA, helping to grow junior golf programs across the state.  Among his many awards, he was the first member of the Minnesota Section PGA to achieve Master Professional status, and was recognized for his efforts in junior golf by being named the PGA of America Junior Golf Leader in 1993. In addition to the national award, Tollette has been named the Minnesota Section's Junior Golf Leader three times.  He was involved in the original plan, design and construction of Bunker Hills Golf Course, the course where he has been the head golf professional for 41 years.  Tollette was named the Minnesota Section's Professional of the Year in 1981 and 1994, and received the Steve Weidner Outstanding Service Award in 2008.  He was instrumental to the Minnesota Section PGA's leadership, serving as Section president from 1993-94, and like Schultz, was involved in developing the MGA/PGA Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame.
