Best Practices for Growth of the Game Grants

Lighting up Overton Park

City of Memphis brought portable lights to Overton Park, for a three day stretch. Invited golfers of all ages for a fun, family friendly atmosphere. Grant funding was used to help secure 4 portable lights.


Fall Bloomfield Linksters Program

Age ranges from 5-9 and 10-14 years old, for a total of 60 junior golfers. Throughout the program juniors learned short game, full swing and how to be a good teammate. Grant funding was used to help purchase jerseys and offset other costs associated with the program.

Holston Hills Birdie Basics Program

Ran 3 eight week classes throughout the season. Each class the Professionals would set up the activities in line with the instructions provided in the Birdie Basics curriculum materials. These detailed descriptions made it easy to gather materials, set up putting, chipping and full swing activities, generate the story line for the day, and the swing topics we will highlight. Grant funding help offset costs of the Birdie Basic program and SNAG equipment.
