MANITOBA GOLF SCHOLARSHIP FUND
A registered charity, the object of which is to provide financial assistance to young golfers entering or continuing in a Post-Secondary Educational Institution in Canada.
The young golfers of today are the club members and supporters of the game tomorrow.
The undertaking of the Fund is restricted to:
“The provision of periodic scholarships to younger golfers of either gender, resident in Manitoba, for the advancement and furtherance of such person’s education … and the receipt, accumulation and disbursement of funds for this purpose.”
Since its inception in 1986 the Fund has been accumulating a Capital Fund and have awarded one hundred seventy-seven (177) scholarships to worthy recipients who have participated in the Manitoba and North West Ontario golf community and who have demonstrated scholastic excellence. It is the Board’s hope that the Capital Fund can be steadily augmented so that both the number of scholarships and the amount of each can be increased.
The 2017 Scholarship Recipients are:
The Dr. Dwight Parkinson Award is a $3500 scholarship that has been made possible by Mr. Dave Hill of the St. Charles Country Club.

The greater the Fund, the greater the academic assistance it will be in a position to provide.
