Mike Goodes Scholarship Fund

The goal for the scholarship fund is to raise $250,000 over the next five years. The fund will lend a helping hand to aspiring young golfers who demonstrate dedication and passion in developing their skills. The scholarship offers support for those starting the game and those excelling in it. Plans for the Mike Goodes Scholarship fund will include supporting two college bound scholarships for advanced junior golfers heading to compete in collegiate golf, five developmental scholarships designed for developing junior golfers active in competitive events, and ten novice scholarships for youth golfers just beginning the game on a yearly basis.

“Mike’s game and personality is embodied in the Goodes Scholarship Fund. His hard work accompanied with focus and a greater purpose for doing all he does makes him an ideal role model for the young people of the Greensboro community. Our Foundation is greatly honored to have Mr. Goodes on the team and we believe it will continue to further create and enhance innovative programs for the growth of junior golf in the Carolina’s and beyond. Certainly, the TYGF mission is enhanced and expanded with Mike’s presence and generosity” says TYGF President Chris Haarlow.
