It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Alan “Al” Fergus Mundle, PGA on March 25, 2023. Al was a remarkable man, a distinguished member of the golf community, and a true gentleman. He left a legacy of dedication and service that will forever be remembered by those who knew him.
Al’s passion for golf was evident throughout his life, and his contributions to the sport were significant. He served as the head professional at several of the most distinguished clubs in the Northwest, including Overlake Golf and Country Club in Medina, Washington, Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Oregon, and most recently RiverRidge Golf Complex in Eugene, Oregon. His expertise and commitment to excellence were recognized with numerous awards, including the PNW PGA Golf Professional of the Year award in 1974 and 1978, and the Bill Strausbaugh award in 1977, 1981, and 1983. He was inducted into the PNW PGA Hall of Fame in 1989.
Al was highly involved in Chapter and Section affairs, serving as Section President in 1971-1972, and as the Hall of Fame Committee Chairman for many years into the 1990s. He was a PGA Century Life Member, and his love for the game extended beyond his professional duties. Al was known for his kindness, generosity, and unfailing support of young golfers, always willing to lend his expertise and encouragement to those starting out in the sport.
Al was a great friend to many, and his passing is a profound loss to the golf community and to all who knew him. He will be dearly missed, but his legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched during his remarkable life.
