RDGA Foundation Inc. Overview
The Foundation exists to Grow Junior Golf in Rochester
Golf gives children a great way to learn life lessons, grow as a person, and make lifelong friends.
The RDGA Foundation Inc. and Rochester District Golf Association are dedicated to giving children within the district of the RDGA access and exposure to the game of golf.
This is accomplished through programs we have administered for decades - featuring youth golf tournaments, coaching, training, and education of golf's etiquette, safety, rules, and fundamentals.
Foresight Junior Golf Initiative
In 2016 the RDGA Foundation Inc. and Rochester District Golf Association will begin the Foresight Junior Golf Initiative to enhance its role in growing the game while providing junior golfers will more opportunities to play and learn the game.
• The Foundation will begin awarding summer golf memberships for juniors in coordination with the RDGA, Monroe County Parks Golf
Courses, Kless-Myers Golf Management, and Section V Schools.
• These golf memberships will provide junior golfers with unlimited golf privileges at any of the three Monroe County golf courses. Membership will also include use of the driving ranges at Genesee Valley and Churchville Golf Club.
• Section V middle school and high school physical education teachers and golf coaches will help select juniors to be awarded summer ForeSight golf memberships.
• The Foundation will fund the membership fee for each junior. Initially we plan to provide up to 60 juniors with memberships in 2016, and grow each year following.
As a potential donor you can help us provide memberships to more students.
The Foundation and the Rochester District Golf Association have awarded scholarships annually to assist students in financing their college or university undergraduate educations.
The scholarship program has awarded over $320,000 to local students since its creation.
The Foundation would like to grow its ability to assist more students with scholarships.
Free USGA-RDGA GHIN Handicaps to all Juniors
Getting kids to have and use a golf handicap aligns them closer to the game, helps them improve their scoring and brings them to the golf course. Handicaps make it fun for players of all abilities to play together!
This service will be promoted to our member clubs and the community to encourage juniors to sign up for a handicap, and ultimately play more golf.
