Peggy Dodds Profile
Born and raised in Sacramento, Peggy went to Sacramento High School and Sacramento Junior College. It was at Sac City College that she took PE golf classes from (fellow SGHOF inductee) Beth Hightower. From 1983 to the present day, she has devoted her time to running multiple junior golf events at the Sacramento City and County golf courses. She joined the Sacramento Golf Council in 1985 and was asked to reorganize the declining junior championships and now they remain some of the crown jewel events across Northern California and beyond. She has spent countless hours volunteering to help with additional events including Little Linkers, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento Tour events and other Golf Council events. Her tireless devotion to juniors has created multi-generations of parents and kids who have benefitted from the work that she has done.
