Ellen Griffin

Griffin combined her love for golf and teaching by establishing a facility in Greensboro known as “The Farm.” A 1940 graduate of Woman’s College (now UNCG), she taught in the Physical Education Department until 1968. She was recognized for her work by the LPGA as its national Teacher of the Year in 1962. The LPGA also honors her with the Ellen Griffin Rolex Award, presented annually to an outstanding golf teacher. Griffin was co-author of the textbook “Golf Manual for Teachers” and received the UNCG Distinguished Service Award in 1980.
