Donate to the Scott Robertson Tournament and Local Golf Programs
The Scott Robertson Memorial needs your help supporting Junior golf
The Scott Robertson Memorial Junior Golf Tournament, presented by Truist, currently planning the 37th annual tournament for May 21, 22 & 23 2021, has a national reputation for not only the quality of players it draws, but for the warm reception the players and guests receive from the Roanoke Valley, from our host Roanoke Country Club, RCC members, and in particular, from hundreds of volunteers who help make the tournament run flawlessly.
The Scott Robertson Memorial also supports junior golf in the Roanoke Valley, specifically in our affiliation with First Tee Roanoke Valley. The proceeds from the tournament help our First Tee partner offer quality programs year round, not only from programs held at the Scott Robertson Memorial Junior Golf Academy, home of First Tee Roanoke Valley, but also with unique partnerships in the community. These partnerships include the Boy’s and Girl’s Club, the Roanoke City, Roanoke County, and Salem City School Systems, The YWCA Magic Place, just to name a few.

In western Virginia, there are three organizations dedicated to introducing golf and related life lessons to children that deserve your support. The three beneficiary organizations of the Junior Golf Foundation of Virginia are The Scott Robertson Memorial, The First Tee of Roanoke Valley and The Roanoke Valley Junior Tour. All share a commitment to junior golf, have been successfully operating for at least six years and have relied on the generous financial support of the business and golf community in the Roanoke Valley.
The goal of the Foundation is to consolidate the fundraising activities and achieve economies in fundraising costs and to avoid multiple asks of donors.
