GAM Foundation

Invest in the Future of Golf

The GAM Foundation supports access to affordable golf for youth — an investment in the future of the game. Our simple goal is to help more kids play more golf for $5 or less through Youth on Course. We are making golf more affordable and accessible at a local level – an effort which requires help from generous individuals like you.

Golf is one of the safest activities for kids; YOC Michigan is growing fast

GAM Foundation Educational Scholarship

The GAM Foundation sponsors an educational scholarship for PGM (Professional Golf Management) students attending Ferris State University. All PGM students at Ferris State are eligible to apply for this award. Past participation in Youth on Course Michigan or the GAM is considered in the selection process with the hope that the scholarship recipient will offer YOC opportunities at their future golf facility. The GAM Foundation makes annual contributions from its general fund to the scholarship endowment managed by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan. Should you wish to make a direct contribution, checks can be made out to Community Foundation For Southeast Michigan or CFSEM with GAM Foundation written in the memo line.
