Midlothian Country Club -
A Proud Founder of the Western Golf Association
The Western Golf Association has been a national leader in golf since its founding in 1899, when representatives of eleven Chicago-area clubs, including Midlothian Country Club, signed the original charter incorporating the WGA to conduct golf championships and coordinate tournament events at member clubs.
The vision of the Western Golf Association expanded in 1930 when it joined with amateur golf great Charles "Chick" Evans, Jr. to establish the Evans Scholarship for caddies. The Western Golf Association Bag Tag Program, created in 1946, and the Par Club which followed in 1950, were established to provide golfers with a way to give back to the game they love while helping to build new generations of leaders.
Through the vision and generosity of Chick Evans, a former caddy who became one of the greatest golfers of his era, and the support of Par Club members over the years, nearly 10,000 former caddies have received Evans Scholarships, making The Evans Scholar Program the largest privately funded scholarship organization in the United States.
Midlothian Country Club Evans Scholar Honor Roll
While the members of Midlothian Country Club congratulate all the young men and women who have walked our fairways, we are especially proud to recognize those Midlothian caddies who have earned Evans Scholarships. Thanks also to hundreds of club members who have demonstrated continuous and generous support of the Evans Scholars Program as members of the Western Golf Association Par Club.
