Scholarships

The SCGA Junior Scholarship Program is designed to help youth continue their education in college or vocational school.

The Scholars: Over the past eight years, SCGA Junior has awarded $757,000 to 85 college students. This year’s class of 45 students encompasses individuals who are role models in their community, hard workers at school and who have grown in character through their experiences with golf. They are all members of Southern California junior golf programs, and we congratulate them on their educational collegiate journey.

Program Requirements: All applicants, who must be active SCGA Junior Golf Club members for at least two years, are required to submit an application, college budget, resume, and personal statement, along with two reference letters from community service or academic professionals. There is a minimum requirement of a 2.5 GPA and students must maintain full-time academic status.

Golf Pass members who become certified online have access to the more than 150 facilities who participate in the program by offering green fees of $1-$5 and range fees of $1-$2. We will continue to partner with facilities in areas that need more access to grow our facility numbers including target regions in Ventura and San Bernardino counties. SCGA Junior seeks to certify 4,000 youth for the program, subsidizing 50,000 buckets of balls and 35,000 rounds of golf in 2016.

SCGA Junior provides junior golf instruction at Pico Rivera GC, Norwalk GC, River Ridge GC and Bell Gardens GC and Maggie Hathaway GC. We plan to serve 1,700 juniors in 2016 between the five instruction sites. This number will include youth cultivated through community outreach partners geographically close to the three sites. Instruction participants will receive a golf pass designated for their instruction site when they initially join the program, and will have an option to purchase the SCGA Junior Club Golf Pass at a 50% discount. The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) junior golf curriculum is utilized at all sites except River Ridge GC. A lead instructor who is TPI certified runs classes at each site, and is assisted by site coaches at each facility. The TPI curriculum is a science-based, proven junior golf curriculum, which will promote health, fitness and swing biomechanics.

• Club Outings: We host monthly club outing days at participating SCGA Junior facilities throughout Southern California. These are rotated each month so that we cover all of the regions we serve. Clinics are open to all junior golfers and include an hour of instruction from the local professional followed by nine holes of golf. The cost to attend is $5 for club members and $10 for non-members. Club tournaments are designed to be social and introductory events and the formats vary. The cost to participate is $20.
• Girls Outings: Active female club members are invited to attend outings specifically for girls throughout the year. These outings are also a way to encourage members to have their friends sign up for the program. SCGA Junior’s Girls Committee determines locations and dates for the outings and each is hosted by a committee member.
• Educational Activities: Club members are encouraged to participate in our educational activities as well and participation increases their opportunities to play in our private golf club outings as well as improves their opportunities to receive a scholarship. Activities include college tours, volunteer days, and college golf summits.
