Congaree Global Golf Initiative

The Congaree Global Golf Initiative was founded in 2017. Its mission is to provide underserved and well-deserving high school students who aspire to play collegiate golf access to the highest level of athletic coaching and academic tools to enhance their opportunities for success. A student’s journey with Congaree only begins at CGGI. During their college career, the Congaree team supports each student by providing an alumni network of fellow CGGI students, as well as internship and mentorship opportunities through Congaree’s Ambassadors.
