The governing body for golf is donating $1 million to help establish university and college golf programs, complete with scholarships the RCGA announced Feb. 27.
The hope is that the programs will eventually provide an alternative to NCAA programs. There are more than 300 Canadian golfers attending universities or colleges in the United States.
Were confident this will be successful based on the enthusiasm weve already received from both the university and college people, association head Rich Desrochers said Friday.
