Lisa Meldrum (1982 - ...) - inducted in 2023
 
A Montréal native and member of The Royal Montreal Golf Club since the age of ten, Lisa Meldrum has distinguished herself as an exceptional player on the Junior, Amateur, and Professional scenes. Throughout her playing career, and still to this day in her teaching profession, she has been a model of perseverance, determination, passion, and positivity.
 
Her amateur career is very impressive. Since the age of 15, in 1997, she has dominated the competitive scene by winning the titles of Club Champion, Montréal Region Champion (in her age group), Provincial Junior Champion, and Canadian Juvenile Championship. She also placed 11th at the Women's Provincial Amateur Championship and was a member of the Québec Junior Team and the Québec Elite Team. This phenomenal season set the tone for Ms. Meldrum's career as she accumulated a dozen titles between 1998 and 2003, including three junior and two provincial amateur championships as well as Canadian championships.
 
More specifically, her victory at the Canadian Junior Women's Championship in 2000 earned her a first recognition from Score, which named her the Best Female Junior Golfer in Canada. With three consecutive Canadian amateur titles from 2001 to 2003, a feat not accomplished by a Canadian woman since Marlene Stewart Streit in 1956, Score also honoured her as the Best Female Amateur Golfer in Canada for each of those three years.
 
Since 1999, she has represented the Canadian Ladies Golf Association (CLGA), which has included numerous U.S. junior tournaments, a training camp in Scotland, junior and amateur competitions in the U.K., as well as the World Amateur Team Championship in 2002 and the Americas Cup in 2003, where she won. Her career low score is 64.
 
A member of the University of Oklahoma Sooners golf team from 2000 to 2004, Ms. Meldrum was the top player for four years. She completed a bachelor's degree in sociology in addition to a minor in business, was named Big 12 Freshman Golfer of the Year for 2000-2001, earned numerous Big 12 titles and All-American honours, in addition to winning three collegiate events and posting 25 top-10 performances.
 
Before returning to Québec, Ms. Meldrum played as a golf professional on the Duramed Futures Tour from 2006 to 2009, the LPGA Tour in 2010 and 2011, as well as the Symetra Tour from 2012 to 2015.
 
A “Class A” member of the PGA of Canada, she specialized in teaching and coaching, is TPI certified, and a Level 2 ELDOA practitioner. She has been teaching since 2016 and is currently the Head Teaching Professional at The Royal Montreal Golf Club where she plays a crucial role in the both the club’s junior and adult development programs for all levels of golfers, from beginner to advanced, and teaches 12-months a year in Montréal.
 
Ms. Meldrum was elected to the Québec Golf Hall of Fame in the player category.
