Walt Whithaus Male Sportsmanship Award

Each year FAGA selects a male and female competitor that throughout the year has best displayed the qualities of a great sportsman.This award bears the name of our friend Walt Whithaus, who was an avid supporter of FAGA. He was born December 1, 1932 in Osage County, Missouri. Walt was the retired owner of the Findlay Pizza Huts, and was co-owner of the first Pizza Hut franchise in Topeka, Kansas. A U.S. Air Force veteran who served during the Korean War, he graduated from Chamois High School, Chamois, Missouri, and attended Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas. He was a member of the Fostoria Country Club; Findlay Country Club; Elks Club; and Pits, Rod & Gun Club.


Walt passed away on January 10, 2000. We are very proud of the contributions he made to golf and to our own organization, but most of all we are proud of the friendship we had with him. We, along with all of his friends throughout Findlay and Hancock County, miss him.

This award carries a special significance because of the tremendous importance of good sportsmanship and most of all by the name the award has inscribed on it…Walter L. Whithaus.
