DDWGA Awards Three Scholarships

Since its inception in 1996, the DDWGA Scholarship Awards have been a symbol of excellence and achievement for High School Females connected to the game of golf.  This prestigious award has recognized and rewarded the most deserving young women who have demonstrated an exceptional passion and commitment to the game in the DDWGA Area. 

With a long-standing tradition of empowering and encouraging female golfers, the DDWGA Scholarship Awards have donated over $60,000 to 75 deserving recipients who have exhibited extraordinary talent, determination, and dedication to the sport. These accomplished young women have used their awards to pursue their dreams and ambitions in the world of golf and academia and have become shining examples of what can be achieved through hard work, perseverance, and a deep connection with the game. 

As we continue to celebrate the legacy of the DDWGA Scholarship Awards, we look forward to honoring our three chosen female juniors at the DDWGA Spring Shamble on Monday, May 20th at Urbana Country Club.
