Scholarships for PGA Apprentices

Johnny Williams, PGA assistant golf professional at Heritage Ranch Golf & Country Club, conducted the 7th Annual Chip-in Fore Charity Classic on Monday, October 31, 2016. This event raises funds for the Northern Texas PGA and Alzheimer's Association. The funds raised for the Northern Texas PGA are dedicated to the A.C.E. Program (Assistants' Campaign for Education), which helps aspiring assistant professionals on their path towards becoming a PGA Member.

In 2017, the A.C.E. Program will award $5,000 in scholarships to deserving newly elected PGA Members and also Apprentices who have completed Level 2 or Level 3 of the Apprentice program. The reason for developing the scholarship program is to help cover the costs related to the attainment of PGA Membership, and to recognize and promote our future industry leaders. The Northern Texas PGA will be awarding two separate $2,500 scholarships in 2017.
