Charlie Baron

Charlie Baron spent the better part of 22 years as the driving force behind the PGA Tour’s annual stop in Las Vegas. In that time, he helped the Las Vegas Founders raise millions of dollars for local charities and contribute significantly to the Las Vegas economy as some of the biggest names on the PGA Tour - Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and others - roamed the fairways. Baron had a couple of top memories in his years organizing the tournament, including Chip Beck’s fabled 59 in 1991 at Sunrise Country Club and Tiger Woods’ first PGA Tour victory, coming in 1996. Baron also helped run countless men’s and women’s collegiate tournaments over the years and was also involved in AJGA golf tournaments held around the Las Vegas valley.

In his words: “I am honored to be recognized as part of the golf history in Las Vegas. I had the pleasure of working with many Las Vegans during my 22 years in the community and we accomplished many goals over the years that benefitted numerous organizations.”
