Royal Oaks Scholarship Golf Athlete Program
In 2012, Royal Oaks Country Club initiated a scholarship and mentoring program to benefit the youth of Clark County who exemplify outstanding academic achievement, high school golf athleticism, and community citizenship. The Scholar Golf Athlete Program was developed to honor and encourage area high school golfers by receiving courtesy membership privileges to Royal Oaks Country Club for the duration of their high school. The program enables student golfers to utilize facilities and resources at Royal Oaks, while helping them to continue to improve their golf game, and further their love of the game of golf.
Scholar golf athletes must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 throughout their involvement in the program, and participate in High School Golf. Those recipients who go on to play college golf may be eligible to continue in the program with the chosen college and appropriate governing athletic association approvals.
Research & Approval
Royal Oaks modeled the program & application from a successful program at the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland, Oregon. When established the program was reviewed and supported by the Oregon Golf Association, NCAA and the United States Golf Association. It is the high school scholarship recipient’s responsibility, upon acceptance to a collegiate program to attain approval from their chosen college and from the NCAA or other appropriate governing college athletic association that it is acceptable for them to continue the Royal Oaks Courtesy golf membership privileges.
Our goal is to award a scholarship each year to a boy and girl finishing their sophomore high school golf season. The Scholarship committee consists of three Royal Oaks members, the Club Manager, the Director of Player Development and the Membership Director that review the applications, interview the candidates, and select the recipients.
This program has been a success with a number of local scholar athletes. We are pleased to have these scholar golfer’s practicing and playing at our club with Royal Oaks members.

Royal Oaks Caddy Program
The caddy program is open to children of members and non-members over the age of 14. All caddies must complete an official training session. It’s a great opportunity to earn summer money and see if you are interested in becoming an Evans Scholar.
Evans Scholarship Program
Each year, more than 800 deserving caddies attend college on full tuition and housing grants from the Evans Scholars Foundation. To qualify, caddies must be nominated by their club and meet four requirements:
Strong caddie record: Applicants must have caddied, successfully and regularly, for a minimum of two years and are also expected to caddie and/or work at their sponsoring club during the summer when they apply for the scholarship.
Excellent academics: Applicants must have completed their junior year of high school with above a B average in college preparatory courses and are required to take the ACT.
Demonstrated financial need: Applicants must clearly establish their need for financial assistance.
Outstanding character: Applicants must be outstanding in character, integrity and leadership.
Applicants are evaluated and compete on the above criteria for the limited number of Chick Evans Caddie Scholarships awarded annually. The Scholarship Committee will interview finalists and the final selection rests with the Committee.
Congratulations to Zach Peros, Royal Oaks Caddy and 2017 Evans Scholarship Award Recipient.
