Sawgrass Country Club raises more than $12,000 to support scholarship trust fund


Sawgrass Country Club raised $12,040 in 2016 in support of the Jacksonville Area Golf Association (JAGA) scholarship trust fund. JAGA’s trust fund helps financially support students in need who have an interest in the game of golf.

Through the JAGA scholarship fund, Sawgrass has helped 21 students reach their goal of going to college – some of whom have gone on to careers in golf.

Students receive $1,000 per term for up to eight terms of undergraduate study – an increase from the initial amount of $250. All contributions to JAGA go to the scholarship fund.

Since the founding of the scholarship fund in 1974, more than $1 million in scholarships have been awarded to college-bound students.
