Program 1

SCJGF Scholarship Program

Since 1995, the SCJGF has provided over $750,000 in academic scholarships to 105 students in SC. What is fulfilling about this program is the fact that awards are earned by SC youth who must attend in-state colleges/universities, so the money stays in our home state!

Executive Director

Mr. Happ F Lathrop

BIO

Happ Lathrop has been the Executive Director of the SC Golf Association (SCGA) since 1976. As his roles with the SCGA increased, so did the need for developing programs for youth. In 1990, Happ and the SCGA Board created the SC Junior Golf Association (SCJGA) to have tournaments and programs for youth up until high school graduation. With the success of the SCJGA and junior golf programs as a whole, the SC Junior Golf Foundation (SCJGF) was created in 1995 to help fund the programs as well as scholarship needs for SC youth.
