Ridgefield Golf Course Improvement Fund

Ridgefield Golf Course Improvement Fund

The Ridgefield Golf Course Improvement Fund (RGCIF) is a non-profit charitable organization started in 2011 by a group of Ridgefield golfers and the town golf professional. The initiative came from a love of the game, pride in our unique and lovely town golf course and a desire to improve the course by funding course improvement projects.

The hope is that through a series of fund raising and awareness activities that residents and non-residents, golfers and non-golfers can be encouraged to make tax deductible donations towards funding improvement projects.

Projects funded would be geared towards those that have the greatest impact and perceived need from golfer feedback. These would vary from year to year and would be supplemental to the town funded projects, not a substitution.

Examples of initial projects would include sand bunker upgrade and reconstruction, cart path extensions, new practice putting green, improved range tee stations or reconstruction of tee boxes.

Future projects envisioned are support towards new a new clubhouse, landscaping and tree planting, rebuilding greens and other Master Plan projects.

 

Note: Board Members do not receive compensation for their efforts. All funds raised will be used solely for projects or fund raising costs such as the cost of this brochure

Golf course improvements are identified from the Master Plan that was developed by Stephen Kay; an excellent golf course architect.
