Mary Lou Mulflur was inducted into the Women’s Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Tuesday, becoming the second Washington women’s coach to earn her place there. Mulflur joined her former coach and mentor Edean Ihlanfeldt.
“I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” said Mulflur. “I never dreamed to be in this position when I started coaching. It is very special to be recognized by your colleagues who you work side-by-side and compete with year after year.”
Mulflur is in her 31st season as head coach at Washington, and has led the team to 20 consecutive NCAA Regional appearances. Nine times Washington went on to qualify for the NCAA Championship.
Mulfur graduated from Washington with a degree in speech communications in 1980. She was a four-year letter winner and won three individual titles. She took over as head coach in 1983. A native of Portland, Ore., Mulflur is already a member of the Portland Interscholastic League Hall of Fame as well as a Hall of Famer at her alma mater, Grant High School. In 2010, Mulflur was awarded the NCGA Founders Award for her service to the sport.
