Moore, Florence elected to Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame

Two golfers with strong Charlotte connections -- Patty Moore and Terry Florence -- have been elected to the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame.

Moore has been one of the area's top women's players for years, piling up victories almost routinely. In addition to dominating area tournaments, Moore has been a fine player on the national level, also.

She lives in Charlotte and plays out of Carmel Country Club but also spends a good deal of time in Pinehurst.

Florence is a Charlotte native who is among the best players the city has produced. He was instrumental in developing Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms, S.C., into a top-level golf destination. In recent years, Florence has been director of golf at Bulls Bay in Awendaw, S.C.

Moore and Florence will be inducted during Aug. 17 ceremonies in Pinehurst.
