The J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust was created in 1958 by the Golf Association of Philadelphia. It was named in honor of Philadelphia’s premier golfer of the era, J. Wood Platt. Not only was Mr. Platt an accomplished player, but he was also the Trust’s co-founder and first contributor.
In the last 60+ years, more than 3,800 young men and women have received $23 million in aid. In the 2020-21 academic year, 145 caddies will receive more than $1.2 million. Award amounts range from $1,000 to $10,000 per academic year for undergraduates and graduate students.
