OUR STORY

The Short Grass Foundation was established in 2019 by 3 former collegiate golfers. Their initial desire was to help grow and advance their alma-mater's underfunded golf program. Their goals and vision eventually expanded to wanting to help all college golf players and teams who demonstrate passion, desire, & need.
