Evans Scholarship & WGA

Evans Scholarships & Western Golf Association

Founded in 1899, the Western Golf Association conducts championships for professional and amateur golfers, promotes the use of caddies, and oversees the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards college scholarships to caddies with limited financial means.

The WGA is a driving force in the game, a respected charitable cause for thousands of supporters, and a distinguished leader in the nation’s golf community.

The Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for golf caddies that is renewable for up to four years. Each year, more than 800 deserving caddies across the country attend college on a four-year scholarship from the Evans Scholars Foundation. Selected applicants must have a strong caddie record, excellent grades, outstanding character and demonstrated financial need.

Northland Country Club has seen many caddies earn the Evans Scholarship over the years. We strongly encourage all of our caddies to pursue this Scholarship and provide assistance to those who may qualify.

Northland Country Club has had over 30 caddies earn the scholarship and complete their degree. Here are the caddies that are currently involved in the program:

Nathan J. Fremling – University of Minnesota 2013 (Biochemistry)
Kaitlyn A. Hunt – University of Minnesota 2013 (Marketing)
Amy M. Sienko – University of Minnesota 2013 (Nursing)
Jacob M. North – University of Minnesota 2015 (Business Management)
Joshua S. Kelley – University of Minnesota 2016 (Undecided)
Samuel Seelos – University of Minnesota 2016 (Undecided)
Eli Lee – University of Minnesota 2016 (Business Management)
