Who We Are

The Kansas Golf Foundation (KGF) is the only statewide charitable foundation in Kansas devoted solely to the game of golf. We envision opportunities for golfers at every age and skill level in every corner of Kansas. We instill golf’s valuable lessons in the next generation while honoring the contributions of the past and present.

Golf is more than just a game.
