Our Caveman Scholarships were given out to 10 amazing young people this fall! Nine different clubs that we have worked with are represented in the winners. From two lovely sisters whose Father works at Lake Merced Golf Club in San Francisco to a young man from the small town of Valentine, Nebraska. Each of the students is unique and talented and truly appreciates the help that we have extended from the Caveman Family - which includes all of you!
One of the young ladies who recieved a scholarship is Kate Phillips (pictured on the left), she is currently a Turf Intern at – Seminole Golf Club, Juno Beach, FL.
Kate is from Niagara Falls, Canada and is currently completing her bachelor’s degree from the University of
Guelph in Guelph, Canada. Kate’s journey into turfgrass management has been quite unique: A summer job
(before her senior year of college) on the grounds crew of a golf course changed her career trajectory
completely. Almost immediately after starting her job, Kate realized that working in turfgrass management was
something that she was passionate about and wanted to pursue long term. Kate completed the Turfgrass management Short Course at the University of Guelph and
then joined the Ohio State University International Program to experience greenkeeping in the U.S.
This ultimately led to her internship at Seminole where she continues to excel and pursue her new dream. A recent update from Kate included this from her, "I am very appreciative to everyone who put together and donated to the Caveman Scholarship and thereby giving young people like me the ability to pursue our passions while getting an education.Thank you for your contribution to the golf industry and the development of the young people within it"
