By Design (ASGCA): Carving Out A Career

June 15, 2023

By: Richard Humphreys

The Wadsworth Scholar Program provides students interested in golf course development with a chance to kickstart their career. By Design spoke with previous recipients about the program’s impact.

Since its introduction in 2018, the ASGCA Foundation’s Wadsworth Scholar Program – which is funded by the Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation – has provided students with an interest in golf course development with the opportunity to learn from those in the industry, as well as giving them a kickstart into a career in golf. The ASGCAF spotlights candidates, with Joey Graziani selected for the first ever Wadsworth Scholar Program, at the 2018 ASGCA Annual Meeting in Houston.

“The scholarship had a great impact on me,” says Graziani. “It taught me to avoid complacency, continue learning and take advantage of the opportunity in front of you. I also learned that it is important to be thorough in every detail of a project, from conceptual sketches through to implementation. The Wadsworth Scholar Program has opened the lens of opportunity to what existed in the golf course design industry, leading me to a mentorship by Bobby Weed, ASGCA.”
