Jack Vickers

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2006

For more than 11 years, Jack Vickers tried to obtain the rolling, pine-covered hills near Castle Rock to create a world-class golf course hosting a major professional tournament. His persistence paid off in the late 1970s when he purchased a 5,000 acre tract of land, hired Jack Nicklaus to design the course and in 1981 opened Castle Pines Golf Club. In 1986, Castle Pines was given a spot on the PGA Tour hosting The INTERNATIONAL. Twenty-one years later, The INTERNATIONAL has become one of Denver’s major events, attracting more than 100,000 fans as well as national and international television coverage. The INTERNATIONAL has been a strong supporter of Denver tourism, providing air time for a Denver commercial to be seen around the world by millions of viewers, in addition to exposing the beauty of golf in this region.
