The Texas Golf Association Foundation, the charitable arm of the TGA, is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that was established to make certain that golf in Texas continues to grow and prosper.
It achieves this mission through the financial and administrative support of existing grass-roots junior golf development programs, and in creating new avenues for deserving and underserved youth to learn some of life’s most important lessons through their exposure to the game of golf.
Those of us who have been fortunate enough to have played the game for any length of time can attest that golf has inherent traits – honesty, self-discipline, integrity and the competitive spirit – that prove to be immensely valuable in life. Additionally, the golf-related industry offers many exciting job opportunities like PGA professional, course superintendent and club management.
By ensuring that deserving young people from every walk-of-life have the opportunity to be exposed to this great game and the accompanying valuable life lessons to be learned, as well as discovering the many possible career opportunities surrounding the sport, the TGA Foundation expects that golf in the Lone Star State will be in good hands for generations to come.
