The Minnesota Section PGA has selected the recipients of the 2020 George Waters Memorial Grant.
The George Waters Memorial Grant Program was established to help worthy PGA Professionals and other golf related Player Development or Golf in School programs further their goals in player development with an emphasis on junior golf, disabled golfers or Special Olympics athletes.
The Grant Program was developed from the gracious support of PGA Professional George Waters. Waters, owner of George’s Driving Range and a PGA Member for more than 50 years, enjoyed teaching the game of golf to all interested including juniors. The Minnesota PGA Foundation was a benefactor from Mr. Waters’ estate when he passed away in 2009.
