In 2019, the Sacramento Golf Council agreed to fund an annual $500 scholarship for a Sacramento area junior golfer who has played in junior tournaments sponsored by the Council. We have partnered with the First Tee of Greater Sacramento to use their scholarship award process each year. The Council intends to increase the scholarship awards in the future as funds become available. Donations to support the scholarships may be made at any time by sending a check to our Treasurer, Bob Adams, 5229 Willow Park Court, Carmichael, CA 95608. Checks should be made payable to “The Sacramento Golf Council” and include a note to indicate the donation is to support the scholarship fund.
