College Day is a panel-style, discussion-based seminar designed to assist the college-bound student athlete. This event is open to all junior golfers currently enrolled in a Georgia high school or middle school. GSGA Junior Tour membership is not required for participation in this seminar.
Guest speakers include men’s and women’s college coaches and recruits who inform the juniors about the importance of grades, SAT scores, the NCAA Eligibility Center, NCAA Rules and Regulations, writing resumes, preparing videos, competitive schedules, the recruiting process, college visitations, PGM programs, other opportunities in the golf industry and much more!
For 2021, the College Day Seminar will be conducted virtually using the Zoom platform. All College Day participants will be provided a wealth of information for their personal use in navigating the college golf process.
The Wayne Reynolds Scholarship Foundation
The Wayne Reynolds Scholarship Foundation was founded by Wayne Reynolds, a long-time member of Druid Hills Golf Club. The Reynolds Scholarship Foundation helps qualified junior golfers with their college tuition. The purpose of the Wayne Reynolds Scholarship Foundation Financial Aid Program is to encourage and promote the attainment of higher educational goals for students who have demonstrated successful participation in a junior golf program in Georgia.
The foundation will provide yearly grants (typically $3,000 annually) for deserving undergraduate students at accredited two- or four-year colleges or universities. Since its inception in 1998, the Reynolds Scholarship has been awarded to 14 junior golfers who attended schools such as University of Georgia, Clemson University, Columbus State, Georgia State, Oglethorpe, and Mercer University. Each year, the board of the Reynolds Foundation reviews 150+ applications for the scholarship.
