Bangor Muni pro inducted into Maine Golf Hall of Fame

Brian Enman, the head golf professional at Bangor Municipal Golf Course, has been inducted into the Maine Golf Hall of Fame.

Enman was joined by five other members at an induction dinner held last week at the Poland Spring Golf Club in Poland.

“This is a great honor for Brian, and we are proud he is joining this elite group of Maine golf professionals,” Tracy Willette, director of Bangor Parks and Recreation, said in a news release.

Enman has been a PGA member since 1980. He began his career as the head professional at Northport Country Club in 1978 and later moved on to become the head professional at Dexter Municipal Golf Course in 1982.

He became the head professional at Bangor Municipal Golf Course in 1995, replacing Austin Kelly, who also is a member of the Hall of Fame (1997).

“It is certainly unique for the only two pros that have been at Bangor Muni to be inducted in the Hall of Fame,” Bangor Municipal Golf Course assistant Pro Rob Jarvis.

Enman also has served as the Greater Bangor Open Tournament director since 1995, was a member of the 1978 USGA Public Links Committee, and was a former Husson University golf coach. He also has won several club and tournament championships.

The Maine Golf Hall of Fame was established in 1993. Candidates for induction into the Maine Golf Hall of Fame must demonstrate integrity in both competition and personal life and conduct themselves with dignity and consistent respect for the rules of golf and golf etiquette.

Also gaining induction to the Maine Golf Hall of Fame were Jane Diplock, George Ellis, Meredith Hudson Koerner, Romeo LaBerge, Phil Gerber.

Diplock was a five-time Women’s Maine State Golf Association senior champion, Ellis was a member of both the Maine Seniors Golf Association and Southern Maine Seniors Golf Association, Koerner is a two-time Southern Maine Women’s Golf Association champ, LaBerge has been one of the state’s premier amateur players for several decades, and Gerber is a co-founder of the Southern Maine Senior Golf Association.
