The honor is given to individuals “for significant and long-lasting contribution to the NGCOA,” according to award criteria.
“Anne is one of those truly special people who was always a terrific team player,” said Mike Hughes, NGCOA’s Chief Executive Officer. “She was never out for individual glory. It was all about moving the ball forward for the association and its members. Our mission was always foremost in her mind: to benefit our members.”
Lyndrup, who retired two years ago after 20 years of service, worked alongside Hughes as Director of Player Development and Director of Conference and Trade Show.

She was also instrumental in creating the NGCOA Beginner Friendly Certification program which facilitates participation by creating a set of standards that foster a welcoming atmosphere and flexible playing conditions for new golfers.
Lyndrup also spearheaded NGCOA’s Grow the Game effort which benefitted the association, its members, and the golf industry in general. Her contributions also significantly increased attendance and program quality at the NGCOA’s Annual Conference, held in conjunction with the Golf Industry Show.
