Eight chapters receive outreach grants from GCSAA

More than $20,000 will go toward local communications efforts, including media promotions and golf economic impact studies.


GCSAA has awarded eight grants totaling $20,235 to help affiliated chapters engage in outreach activities to key constituents on the local level, primarily golfers and employers.

Now in its 10th year, GCSAA’s Chapter Outreach Grant Program has helped fund initiatives such as local media buys, state golf days, informational videos, trade show booths and state golf economic impact studies.

“The Chapter Outreach Grant Program helps our affiliated chapters take GCSAA’s national communications efforts and tailor them to for their local audiences,” says Rhett Evans, GCSAA CEO. “In the last decade, we have had more than half of our chapters take advantage of this opportunity to spread the message of the important work of superintendents and the many benefits golf brings to communities.”

The GCSAA-affiliated chapters receiving grants in 2018 are:

  • Alabama GCSA
  • Maine GCSA
  • Metropolitan GCSA
  • Michigan GCSA
  • Philadelphia Association of GCS
  • Rocky Mountain GCSA
  • GCSA of South Dakota
  • Southern Illinois GCSA

GCSAA has 99 affiliated chapters across North America.
