Dear Taconic Members,

The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund has been the official “Golf Charity of Massachusetts” since 1949. Thanks to the support of the “Bag Tag” fund, the Ouimet Scholarship Fund continues to provide scholarship dollars. As always, by supporting the “Bag Tag” program, you will receive a distinctive Ouimet “Sponsor” tag.  Last year Taconic members contributed $15,765.00 to the “Bag Tag” program.

Some facts regarding the Ouimet Scholarship Fund:

  • Since its inception, the Fund has awarded $40 million to 6,050 recipients.
  • The Fund was able to award $3 Million to 450 recipients for the 2022-2023 academic year.
  • The average annual award for the 2020-2021 academic year was $7,500.00.
  • 100% OF YOUR BAG TAG DONATION GOES TO SCHOLARSHIPS.

Recent Financial Ouimet Scholar recipients from Taconic Golf Club are:

             Hayden N. Gillooly – Williams College ’21    Jack Sniezek – Siena College ‘21

             Mackenzie Wright – Liberty University ’21  Finn Welch – Springfield College ‘24

 In the past 10 years our Taconic Financial Scholars have received a total of $170,500.00.  Many of the Financial recipients receive awards for all four years of college.

 The Ouimet Fund asks that you consider a donation of $60.00 in support of the “Bag Tag” program.  Upon receipt of your donation the pro shop will attach tags to those bags that are in club storage. If your clubs are not in storage or you do not receive your tag, please see the pro shop.

The Taconic Ouimet committee extends a THANK YOU to all the members that support the Fund!

Sincerely,

Taconic Golf Club Ouimet Fund Committee
