SCPGA Foundation Director, Matt Gilson, organized and facilitated the afternoon and has personally attended each of the donation ceremonies since its inception in early 2017. The ClubsForeYouth® initiative is the SCPGA Foundations marquee program, which has made a powerful impact in the lives of the next generation of golfers. Early research indicated that many of the children playing in the high school level, specifically girls, have a difficult time accessing proper equipment needed to enjoy the game. Time and time again, recipients explain that they are using old, beat up equipment, or are stuck borrowing clubs from family members.
LA QUINTA, CA – The ClubsForeYouth® program has seen many special donation ceremonies in the process of donating 358 sets to girls and throughout dozens of SoCal communities. The donation hosted at The Quarry at La Quinta was one of those days that seperate themselves from the rest. One reason is the fact that a record 23 sets were donated to the very deserving students from Coachella Valley & Indio High Schools, the other was the fact that each student was given an opportunity to play a Top 100 Facilty with their new clubs!
