A golf scholarship means you attend a college or university for the main purpose of achieving an academic qualification. You help pay for the cost by representing your college or university golf team in competitions and tournaments. In essence, you are combining study for your academic qualification with practicing and playing golf.
With more and more big names like Paul Casey, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald having used US collegiate golf as a springboard to greater success, a US golf scholarship is widely recognised as the ideal way to raise your game and find out if you have what it takes to reach the next level.
With scholarships covering such a broad range of academic and sporting levels, there is something to suit most young talented and enthusiastic golfers. Whether you study for a degree or a national diploma, attend an NCAA Division I university or a junior college, all depends on your golfing ability and academic achievements.
