Carolinas Golf

In 1977, the Carolinas Golf Foundation (CGF) was created to establish a qualified charitable organization devoted to providing financial support to Carolinas-based golf initiatives. Soon thereafter, the CGF honed in on an immediate need, Carolina's turfgrass research. In 1979, the first funding awarded by the CGF ($15,000) was distributed among five different turfgrass groups. Through 2023, the CGA has donated over $461,000 toward turfgrass research.

Over time, the CGF continued advancing its mission of "providing access to life-changing opportunities through the game of golf.” In addition to turfgrass research, through 2023, the CGF has donated over $1,668,000 toward player development and over $811,000 in scholarships.

Whether it’s witnessing a junior player grow into a successful adult, seeing a disabled veteran thrive through the therapeutic effects of golf, or watching a high school student achieve their dream of attending college, each CGF donor has been touched in some way by the contributions made to these programs. You, yourself, may even have played a round or two on turfgrass developed or improved by scientists at Carolinas universities and colleges. 


Your support is crucial in furthering our mission of growing this incredibly fun,
challenging, and life-changing game in the Carolinas!
