The Pacific Northwest PGA Junior Golf Fund is proud to bring to you the 2015 YOUTH PLAYER DEVELOPMENT GRANT PROGRAM. This new initiative reflects the commitment of the Junior Fund Board to growing Junior Golf in the great Northwest. Donations to the 1% Club have contributed greatly to this program.

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 JUNIOR programming. Our approach will be purposefully 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. A total of $9,000 has be allocated for 2015.

As a new program, we are looking to you to help define the needs of Junior Golf in the Northwest. Do you need funding to buy Junior sets for your beginner classes, do you need funding for your personal Golf in Schools program, do you want to offer scholarships to potential students to pay ½ their registration fees, do you need funding for Snag equipment? 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 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 a editable pdf, simply type your responses to each question. If the file grows to additional pages, we certainly welcome the detail.
