Cody Hayes Scholarship
In 2003, the Foundation began its scholarship program by awarding four $500 scholarships to Idaho Golf Association Juniors entering their freshmen year of college. The Cody Hayes Memorial Golf Scholarship was established through the Foundation to honor the memory of Idaho Golf Association Junior member Cody Hayes who was tragically killed as he returned home from the IGAJ State Junior Championship in Idaho Falls in August of 2002.
Hayes is remembered as a great student and all around athlete who exemplified the true spirit of sportsmanship, integrity, and honor. He was respected and admired by all who came in contact with him. It is only fitting that the Foundation names its scholarship fund after Cody to perpetuate the memory of this fine young man.

Idaho Junior Golf Foundation
The Idaho Junior Golf Foundation (IJGF) was founded in 1997 as a non-profit organization (501c3) to solicit tax deductible donations and grants to be used to promote and support junior golf throughout the State of Idaho. Now the purpose of the IJGF is to serve Idaho Junior golf by maintaining, supplementing, and augmenting charitable and educational programs.
In particular, the IJGF has partnered with Idaho’s only statewide junior golf program, the Idaho Golf Association Juniors (IGAJ) to expand the knowledge of golf to juniors through clinics, seminars and a competitive golf league. With the financial support of the IJGF, the IGAJ annually serves up to 1,000 children through its various programs. This permits the program staff the capability to coordinate championship caliber events and activities while keeping the cost down for the participants.
It is the primary objective of the IJGF to introduce golf to all youth, regardless of their financial and social challenges and to promote golf as a lifetime sport. In addition to networking with the IGAJ, the IJGF provides annual scholarships and need based assistance for youth to participate in regional, national and collegiate golf programs.
