H Albert Inkel Scholarship Fund
Each year, Windy Hill holds a golf tournament to raise money for the scholarship fund supporting local junior golfers in our community. The H Albert Inkel Memorial Golf Tournament is held in October annually and has had the privilege to award over $40,000 to very deserving local junior gofers. The tournament is a 4-person scramble, which was Al’s favorite format to play with his daughters. There is a different theme each year, and golfers come in costume and have so much fun raising money for junior golfers to continue growing the game of golf. Sign-up begins over the summer, so make sure to keep an eye out for current events! We’ll also post information about the tournament on our Facebook page, which is a great way to keep up with everything Windy Hill!
The H Albert Inkel Scholarship Fund was set up by LPGA Nichole Inkel in reembrace of her father, H Albert Inkel.
Al “H” adored his family and was an avid golfer. He was a huge supporter of the LPGA and junior golf, getting his daughters Lori & Nichole started at a young age. He was always there to sponsor tournaments, volunteer his time, and set up scholarship funds giving players the chance to play at the collegiate level. As a father, he never missed a tournament of his daughter Nichole in over 20 years and always did what he could to help her get to the next level.
Al was on the LPGA State Farm Board of Director and was in charge of the press room for over 15 years. He and his wife hosted both Annika & Charlotta Sorenstam for more than 10 years while playing on tour, building a friendship that lasted until he passed.
Al’s passion and support of the game is the main reason his daughter Nichole became an LPGA Member and chose to dedicate her life to giving back to youth in the same charismatic fashion as her father did for so many years.
We’re also planning on hosting various events throughout the year in addition to the H Albert Inkel Memorial Golf Tournament, so keep an eye out here for updates!
