Growth of the Game Grant Applications Available for 2017
Applications are available online
Colorado PGA REACH Grant Applications are designed to provide financial assistance to facilities within the geographic boundaries of the Colorado Section PGA, that employ PGA members or apprentices in good standing, to develop and/or significantly enhance Growth of the Game programs that will attract and retain new golfers.
Growth of the Game grants have been used to help launch facility level programs that are focused on traditionally underserved communities. In addition, grants have been used to partially subsidize the cost of the implementation of PGA Family Tees, military focused programs, and to provide access to facilities for new or lapsed golfers who might otherwise not have the financial resources to participate in growth of the game programs.
