Bob J. Thomas established this endowed scholarship at the end of 2018, with the intent to award the first scholarship recipient for the 2019-20 academic year. Bob currently serves as a Special Consultant to the Fund, having retired from the position of Executive Director of the Westchester Golf Association after 27 years. Bob also served as the Executive Director of the WGACSF from 1991-2016. He is a current and longtime CSF Director from Knollwood Country Club, where he has been a member since 1969.
Having spent time on the course with the Fund’s co-founder Willie Turnesa, Bob has passed down many stories of the Westchester golf legend. Through his tenure as an employee and volunteer, Bob perpetuates the vision of Willie to help area youth by establishing this endowed scholarship.
The Bob J. Thomas Scholarship will be the largest endowed scholarship established by a living individual.
Awards can be made to any caddie scholar with demonstrable need, with special consideration given to caddies from Knollwood Country Club.
