We are so proud of this year’s recipients. They demonstrated leadership and character in their submissions, and we wish them the best of luck as they head back to university and college this fall,” said Ted Fletcher, Founder and Chairman of Mint Green in a news release. “These are outstanding young people – hard-working, well-rounded leaders in their communities. They share our desire of “making a difference” and we are proud to have
played a small role in helping to shape their future.”

Since establishing the Foundation in 1985, The Pat Fletcher Foundation has awarded 565 scholarships, for a total of $800,000 to young Canadian golfers – giving them the opportunity to develop and reach their highest potential.
The scholarship recipients include students from every province in Canada who go on to pursue their education at top schools both in Canada and the U.S.

“While my father was always very passionate about the sport of golf, he was equally passionate about the importance of education. He took a genuine interest in working with junior golfers to help them reach their full potential, both on and off the golf course,” Fletcher added.
