Chris Rigdon & Jon Gustin inducted into Dixie Section PGA Hall of Fame

On Monday, February 9, 2015, the Dixie Section PGA inducted Chris Rigdon and Jon Gustin in the Section’s Hall of Fame.  The Hall of Fame has two divisions, the Modern Division which Rigdon becomes a member of and the Legends Division which elected Gustin.

Chris Rigdon is the current PGA Head Golf Professional/Owner of Trussville Country Club.  Rigdon has served as Trussville CC’s head golf professional since 1979.  During his career, Chris has been a tremendous promoter of the game of golf.  He has been an active participant in Section events through the years, now competing in the Senior Divisions of our tournaments.
