Four club managers were named to receive tuition costs and travel expenses to attend a Business Management Institute, through the program that posthumously honors the former GM of Eastern Hills CC and Lakewood CC in Texas.
The Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that was established by the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) in 1988 to support the advancement of club management professionals by funding industry education programs through scholarships and grants, has announced the recipients of the 2013 Sally Burns Rambo Scholarship.
