McConnell Golf's Scholarship Program
In 2008, McConnell Golf announced their first elite class of young golfers who were awarded with McConnell Golf High School Golf Scholarships. These impressive golfers are nominated by their high school golf coaches or golf professional based on their level of talent, need, and commitment to the sport, as well as their proven dedication and value to the future of golf.
"This is one of the most exciting and rewarding programs that we have been involved in," said McConnell Golf CEO and Founder John McConnell. "Our company is committed to amateur and junior golf. Many times some of the best junior golfers in the area do not have access to professional practice facilities and challenging courses. Our goal is to provide this access and supervision in hopes of helping these talented young players move to the next level of play, and possibly allow them to elevate to the point where golf can become a means to help them receive financial assistance for higher education and even play beyond the collegiate level."
This innovative program is designed to offer limited membership opportunities to talented young golfers that may not have the financial ability to play challenging courses. Recipients must currently be involved in organized golf and be nominated by their coach or other golf professional. The awarded group will have access to all McConnell Golf facilities and have a structured program designed to help them elevate their game. The scholarship recipients will be eligible to play in events that are normally restricted to only McConnell Golf members and consistently be exposed to quality players and courses.
"McConnell Golf continually demonstrates its commitment to Junior Golf and this is the most innovative program that we have seen in some time," said Jason Cox, Director of Junior Golf for the Carolinas Golf Association. "McConnell Golf is quickly becoming an organization that is home to many of the best junior golfers in the state."
