Scholarship OpportunitiesImportant Information For Every Nakoma Caddie
Every year Nakoma Golf Club members back the commitment to the Club’s Caddie program by generously contributing to one or more of the following scholarship programs.
Every Nakoma caddie who reaches 25 “loops” each season will automatically receive $10 per loop (retroactively and going forward) which will be set aside in that caddie’s college education fund. High school students can build this account over the years. The Foundation will issue checks to the appropriate College or University bursar’s office when those caddies enroll in college. A recipient must start to use his/her account within one year from high-school graduation or the funds will be transferred back to the program. In 2022, 6 of our caddies earned $8,000 in Foundation Scholarships. An additional $8,700 was awarded to 19 caddies for $10/loop for 25 loops+.
Evans Scholarships are awarded to the cream of the crop of caddies employed throughout the United States. These scholarships are awarded on a combination of commitment to caddying during high school, GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and financial need. Evans Scholars receive four years of free room and tuition at one of over 22 prestigious Universities throughout the nation (including The University of Wisconsin – Madison and Marquette). We have been fortunate to have seen eleven of our top Nakoma G.C. caddie’s receive Evans Scholarships over the last eleven years.
These tremendous scholarship opportunities represent an important component to Nakoma Golf Club’s commitment to its employees and the community at large. They are a sampling of the countless benefits and life-lessons available to you as a caddie at Nakoma Golf Club
