GSGA Foundation | 2020 Annual Fund

Society of 1916 and President’s Club 

The GSGA Foundation’s Annual Fund supports the Yates and Moncrief Scholarship Programs as well as the GSGA's Adaptive Golf Program and Junior Golf Programs. Over seventy-five young men and women are receiving financial support from the GSGA Foundation’s scholarship programs which have provided over $3.5 million in aid since inception. Our GSGA Adaptive Golf Program is leading the country in providing opportunities for individuals with physical, cognitive and sensory impairments to learn and enjoy this great game. The GSGA Youth on Course Program is tackling affordable access so junior golfers in Georgia can play golf for only $5 at over forty courses across the state while the GSGA Junior Tour offers affordable competitive experiences for ages 5-18 which allow them to have fun and make new friends while on their way to becoming lifelong golfers.
