Golf Emergency Relief Fund-Phase 2 applications begin May 27th

The Golf Emergency Relief Fund provides short-term financial assistance to certain workers in the golf industry that are the backbone of our sport and facing significant financial hardship including those suffering as a result of COVID-19. This relief effort was initiated through a lead, multi-million dollar pledge by the PGA of America. The effort is also being supported in a variety of manners by a number of industry organizations including the GCSAA, PGA TOUR, LPGA, USGA, NGCOA, and AGM.

Applications will be live starting Wednesday, May 27, 2020 for Phase 2 relief. Applications being reviewed and approved will be on a rolling first-come, first-served basis. Visit relief.golf here for more information. If an individual received a grant or was denied a grant in Phase 1, they are eligible to apply in Phase 2. The maximum amount available per individual is $3,500 and the award from Phase 1 will be applied to that total. Please refer to the apply page for additional questions and supplemental documentation required for Phase 2.

It’s #MeetTheTeamMonday!

Today we have Nancy Maul our NCPGA Foundation Executive Director. Nancy’s favorite course in our section is Cypress Point Club. Her dream foursome is her Dad, Jim Langley, Peter Jacbosen and Jeff, her son. Her fav club in her bag is her new Callaway Epic Heavenwood - it's heavenly!
Her favorite sports team is the Seattle Seahawks 🏈 as she was in the Seattle area when the franchise started and grew up with them. Remember the days of Jim Zorn and Steve Largent!?! A fun fact about her is she played golf at The Kinabalu Golf Club on the island of Borneo, Malaysia Fall 2000 -just after the first season of Survivor, which took place about 30 miles off the coast of Kota Kinabalu.
Another fun fact about her is she is both the oldest section staff employee by age and also by numbers of years with the Section - how did that happen!

Thank you Nancy and we are lucky to have you! #ncpga #nancymaul #staff #foundation NCPGA Foundation
