Some young people never get the chance to take up golf or develop their potential as players, due to obstacles beyond their control. Club League USA will address this issue through the introduction of a unique scholarship program that will open doors for deserving youth golfers to participate in this new, team-oriented approach to the game.
Clubs who field a 10-player team in Club League USA will have the ability to offer a scholarship to an additional youth player, between the ages of 8 and 15, who is not a club member. This young man or woman will show promise on and off the golf course and will receive complimentary registration and tournament fees for the entire 2021 Club League season.
“We are excited to expand the opportunity for more young golfers to participate in Club League USA through this innovative scholarship program,” says Jeremy Lee, PGA, Founder and CEO of GolfCritique.com, which sponsors Club League USA. “As we work to grow youth golf, we think it is important to look for players who are not club members but have the potential to develop their game. This financial support can make all the difference for a young player and provide them with the opportunity and motivation to become a better player.” Scholarship players will practice as part of the team and earn their spot in competition just like their teammates, while gaining valuable exposure to teaching and coaching in a club environment.
“The future growth of golf depends on the opportunities we give young players today,” says Lee. “Club League USA wants to ensure youth golfers from every background are given a chance to fulfill their potential, and we believe this scholarship program is an outstanding step in that direction.”
