Are you looking to give back to the game that has brought so much to your life?
What many don’t realize is that Mass Golf – as a 501(c)3 organization – is unique because any donations made go directly to supporting our efforts to create playing opportunities for all and to growing our junior golf program for those in most need. It is a model that we were leaders in creating and that other groups are trying to adopt.
Mass Golf is the seventh largest state golf association in the country and has become a leader to providing a pathway for all golfers – from the most elite to the recreational – by building an engaged community through competition, developmental programs, and lasting experiences.
The 501(c)3 organization provides critical services to its Member Club base and also continually creates value-added programs for the more than 87,000 golfers who hold a Mass Golf/GHIN handicap index with our Member Club base.
The First Tee is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Since 1997, over 10 million young people have had exposure to The First Tee through programs at golf courses, schools and youth agencies. The First Tee is a very powerful brand in the golf industry right now and it is because of the strength of its golf and life skills curriculum. In recent years, The First Tee has developed the motto – “Good Golfers. Better People.” – and the program is truly living up to that statement.
The First Tee of Massachusetts is one of approximately 150 chapters of The First Tee that currently operates five program locations (green-grass facilities that offer programs throughout the year) located around the state – Norton, East Longmeadow, Hyannis, Boston and Brockton. More than 2,000 children are impacted annually at the program locations through a variety of learning opportunities.
With a motto of “Good Golfers. Better People”, The First Tee has – since 1997 – provided programmatic exposure to more than 10 million young people through programs at golf courses, schools and youth agencies.
The WGAM Junior Scholarship Fund, Inc. was organized in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing scholarship aid to deserving WGAM junior golfers. It is a federally income-tax-exempt organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. When the merger between the MGA and WGAM become official, the Mass Golf Board of Directors made a decision to continue supporting the WGAM Junior Scholarship Fund so that all existing scholarship funds could go towards assisting deserving candidates.
If you have any questions about the Scholarship Application or the award process, please contact:
