The Legacy Scholarship will provide 20 students with $1,500 annually. The annual Legacy Awards Scholarship will aid those looking to advance the GCSAA program in education, research and advocating for the work of those who work in golf course management and development. 

First established in 1926, the GCSAA is a professional association for the men and women who work on and keep the sports most valuable resource in pristine condition. It represents 20,000 members from over 78 countries and is a key component in elevating the game and business of golf 

Glass Clippings, originally created as a clothing and merchandising company, is dedicated to the greenskeepers. Opened in 2018, Grass Clippings at Rolling Hills is Arizona’s first fully-lit 18-hole course with the objective of growing the game of golf for any and all ages and backgrounds while providing a unique experience to the game.

The mission makes it a natural partnership between Grass Clippings and the GCSAA.

The scholarship amount will not have a roof, however, as the funds can be raised via rounding up your bill to the nearest dollar at the Grass Clippings pro shop, direct donations, weekly putting contests on the Tempe course or by purchasing any co-branded items in the pro shop. All proceeds will go directly to the fund. 

“Grass Clippings is profoundly honored to express our commitment to nurturing the future of golf by supporting its very foundation: the grass beneath our feet and the dedicated individuals who keep it green,” said Grass Clippings Co-Founder Jake Hoselton. 

“Through our partnership with the GCSAA Foundation and the Legacy Awards, we celebrate the heroes of the game and invest in the education of their families, ensuring the spirit and sustainability of golf for generations to come.” 

To be eligible for the Legacy Scholarship, applicants’ parents or grandparents must be active Class A, B or C, equipment manager, A-retired, B-retired, or AA member of the GCSAA for five consecutive years. The competition is also open for children, step children or grandchildren if the  deceased GCSAA member was active at the time of his or her death.
