The RISSGA feels it is important for the Association and individual members to give back by contributing to selected golf organizations in Rhode Island. Over the years, our donations have focused on the John P. Burke Memorial Fund and Button Hole.
The Burke Fund provides college scholarships to deserving young caddies and club employees. The RISSGA has a scholarship in its name that is awarded each year.
Button Hole provides facilities and programs that develop strong character and teach life values to young people through the game of golf. They also offer Veteran and Special Olympic programs.
