The award, given annually since 1976, is presented to a person who has made a significant contribution to the game of golf and the profession of golf course architecture. Jemsek will receive the award at the ASGCA Annual Meeting in Milwaukee on Oct. 3.

Frank’s father, Joe, first brought Frank into the family business when he was 11 years old.
