Caves Valley Golf Club establishes scholarship for golf management program at UMES

September 25, 2014|Sports Digest

The Caves Valley Golf Club Foundation has established a five-year, $100,000 scholarship at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for a student in the school's PGA Golf Management program. Demarkis Cooper (Oxon Hill) was named the first recipient. UMES is one of 18 schools to offer a PGA-approved degree in golf management, but the only historically black university with the program. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Owings Mills club, which hosted the LPGA's International Crown in late July. The scholarship will cover tuition, room, board, textbooks and other incidental costs for up to five years.
