8th Annual Marilynn Smith LPGA Charity Pro-Am

Marilynn Smith founded her scholarship fund as a result of the lack of funds available to her while playing golf at the University of Kansas in 1948. Marilynn competed in the Women’s National Intercollegiate Golf Tournament. Her father asked the KU athletic director, Phog Allen, for travel expense money to play in the tournament. He said, “Mr. Smith, it’s too bad your daughter is not a boy.” This incident was the catalyst for Marilynn to establish a scholarship fund to help other young women golfers.

This year, with your help, the Marilynn Smith Scholarship Fund plans to provide twenty-five $5,000 scholarships to help young women attend college. Join us for an amazing day and SIGN UP NOW! Early Bird pricing available until June 30th.


Format = Scramble, four amateurs with an LPGA professional
