Storey, Browne Wiltshire headed for Maine Golf Hall

Nancy Storey, the executive director of the Maine State Golf Association, and Elizabeth Browne Wiltshire will be inducted Sept. 7 into the Maine Golf Hall of Fame at Poland Springs Resort.

Storey and Wiltshire were overwhelming candidates in the 25th class, said Gary Rees, the Hall’s executive director.

Storey, a 1983 graduate of the University of Maine, has been the MSGA’s executive director since 1997. She is one of the three women running a state golf association.

Browne Wiltshire grew up playing golf and operating the driving range at the Browne’s family-owned Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. She has been a Natanis club champion more than 20 times and won the 2015 Maine Senior Women’s championship.

Prior to the 7 p.m. induction, there will be an 18-hole scramble tournament at noon, social hour and dinner. For more information call Rees at 341-2911.
