UCLA’s Mayorkas Is Inducted Into Women’s Golf Coaches Hall of Fame

Charlotte Mayorkas, one of only four three-time women’s golf All-Americans at UCLA, was inducted into the Women’s Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame of Coral Springs, Fla, as part of the Class of 2023.

The induction ceremony took place at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas on Monday.

Mayorkas became the third Bruin player and the fifth person from UCLA to be inducted into the WGCA Hall of Fame, joining Janet Coles (Players Class of 1988), Jackie Tobian-Steinmann (Coaches Class of 1989), Kay Cockerill (Players Class of 1996) and Carrie Forsyth (Coaches Class of 2011).

During her senior season of 2004, Mayorkas claimed a UCLA record four individual titles in one  season among 10 finishes in the top 10, and led the Bruins to the Bruins to the Pacific 10 Championship, NCAA West Regional Championship and NCAA Championship.

Mayorkas claimed the individual Pac-10 title that season and was the first Bruins player to be named Pac-10 Golfer of the Year in program history, and she finished in the top five in both NCAA West Regional and the NCAA Championship. She wound up the season at No. 2 in the national rankings.

A native of Chula Vista,  Mayorkas ranks second in program history in career top-10 finishes with 24 and fifth with five career tournament victories.

After graduating from UCLA, Mayorkas turned professional and won two titles on the Duramed Futures Tour titles before going on to make 54 out of 67 cuts during her career on the LPGA Tour.

These days, Mayorkas is a teaching pro at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento.

Also inducted into the WGCA Hall of Fame alongside Mayorkas were Anna Grzebien of Narragansett, R.I., who was a four-time All-American at Duke, and Kristy McPherson of Conway, S.C., a three-time All-American at South Carolina.

Judi Pavon, who coached Tennessee to 25 tournament titles in her career with the Volunteers, was inducted into the WGCA Coaches Hall of Fame.
