Dawn Ginnaty

Throughout the 1980s, Ginnaty was a force to be reckoned with in Minnesota golf. She started her career at Edison High School, where she found great success on the course, finishing second in the Minneapolis city high school tournament in both her junior and senior years. At Winona State, where she was persuaded to switch from playing softball to playing golf, she became the team’s top performer in both her junior and senior years. After graduating college, she continued to find success on the golf course. While representing Gross Golf Club (Minneapolis) and Northern Hills Golf Club (Rochester), she accomplished the remarkable feat of winning four consecutive Minnesota Women’s Public Golf Association Championships, from 1983 to 1986. This winning streak has never been duplicated. Additionally, she won the MGA Women’s Amateur Championship (then known as the Minnesota Women’s State Amateur Championship) in 1986 by four-strokes, a notable margin given the level of competition. Clearly, Ginnaty is one of the best players of her time and a well-deserved inductee to the Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame.
