Dedicated Members Earn More Than $27,000 In SNJGA Scholarships

Golf is a game that can help build young people for the future, and the annual SNJGA scholarship awards help those quality individuals as they embark on new academic and golf adventures.

These scholarships are made possible by a dedicated group of donors who understand why helping a youngster is so important. In 2021, more than $27,000 was awarded and the SNJGA is committed to annually giving away scholarships with its partner, the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame.
