Scholarship Information

  

In 2011, the family and friends of Clarence Voigt had a reason to grow the foundation scholarship fund.  The Gateway PGA Foundation had a reason to rename our scholarship.  Former Head PGA Professional, Clarence Voigt, lost his battle with ALS.  Mr. Voigt's time spent at St. Clair Country Club will always be remembered and his love for Junior Golf will live on through the Clarence Voigt Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarships will be awarded to those high school individuals who meet certain criteria to be considered for this great college financial award. The Gateway PGA Foundation will look to those students who have shown a commitment to the classroom, the game of golf, and carry their own lives in a fashion similair to Clarence Voigt.  We are honored by the generosity shown in Clarence's name and look forward to the lives that will be impacted. 
 
Mr. Voigt began his career in golf at the age of 9, caddying at Westborough Country Club and later at Westwood Country Club.  After service in the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific during World War II, he started his 45-year career at St. Clair Country Club, working with Clarke Morse, Head Pro.  Upon Morse's retirement, Clarence became Head Pro in 1975, and later served as Director of Golf until his retirement in 1990.  Mr. Voigt especially loved working with Junior Golfers.  Clarence Voigt lives on through the Clarence Voigt Memorial Scholarship.  Established in 2011, this scholarship looks to help junior golfers of the Gateway PGA with their cost of a college education.
