Red Run Golf Club has a rich tradition with the Western Golf Association and the Evans Scholars Foundation dating back to 1952 when Life Member Bob McMasters became our first caddie to be awarded an Evans Scholarship. Moreover, in the 120-year history of the WGA only two men from the State of Michigan have been elected Chairman and both are members of Red Run G.C. - Bob McMasters, 1996-97 and David Robinson, 2016-17.

Since 1952, 88  Red Run caddies have been awarded scholarships. In the past year, nine Red Run caddies received a scholarship. Each scholarship is valued at $100,000 and covers the full cost of tuition and housing for four years. Red Run Golf Club recipients attend either Michigan State University or the University of Michigan and live off campus in the Evans Scholarship House for all four years.

The Eagles for Children is a non-profit organization committed to supporting local charities for disadvantaged youth through partnerships with private golf clubs. Similar to the hole-in-one insurance program, each member will be opt-out only and spouses will be opt-in. Every eagle made by participating members will be tracked by the first tee and acknowledgment posted throughout the club and Red Run website. Each participant will be billed on a monthly basis. At the end of the calendar year, the Eagles for Children Committee will select children’s charities to gift the money raised by Red Run Golf Club.

In 2019, Red Run was able to provide grants in the aggregate amount of $100,000 to 12 local children’s charities. 12 local country clubs collectively provided grants totaling $607,091 to 67 children’s charities and 133 projects to help disadvantaged children.

Eagles for Children is a simple, fun and engaging program that unites your club for a common cause … THE KIDS!

Since year one of Eagles for Children the total is $2.2 million!
