Yamaha logoThe Pacific Northwest Section is proud to join with our friends at Yamaha to present the YAMAHA PLAYER DEVELOPMENT GRANT PROGRAM. This new initiative reflects both our commitments to growing the game of golf in the great Northwest.

This opportunity is open to all Pacific Northwest Section Members and Apprentices in good standing who seek funding to help support their own Player Development programs. This program is focused on ADULT programming. The Junior Fund will be developing a similar program focused on junior golf. Our approach will be specifically broad and we encourage you to think outside the box.

Our goals are to provide as many grants as possible, with a maximum of $1,000 per grant. We will focus on enhancing your programs rather than fully funding them.

As a new program, we are looking to you to help define the needs of professionals in the Northwest. Do you need funding to buy rental sets for your beginner classes, do you need funding for a meet and greet reception to introduce Get Golf Ready, do you want to offer scholarships to potential students to pay ½ their registration fees, do you need part of the cost of a booth at the Home Show? The list could be endless. The Committee will consider all requests and your applications will help us expand our vision on what programs should be considered.

The attached application is designed to be efficient to complete, but please provide sufficient details. At the end of the grant we’ll have two requests. First, provide documentation on the use of the funds and second, write a short one page “Best Practice” on your program that we can share with other professionals through our web site.

The Grant Application is available as a Word file or as an editable pdf. Simply type your responses to each question. If the file grows to additional pages, we certainly welcome the detail.

We look forward to reviewing your request.
