The Larry Gilbert Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation established with the following mission:
- Preserve golf for the next generation.
- Instill golf's values and respect for the game.
- Build integrity, honesty, and sportsmanship through the
construction of a golf learning center for youth in the
Lexington-Fayette County area.
The Foundation is a tribute to Larry Gilbert, his family, and his
accomplishments while a PGA professional in the Commonwealth of
Kentucky and as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. His love for the game
and his desire for all to experience its virtues are the driving force
behind the Foundation.
Presently, capital fund-raising efforts are underway to construct
The Larry Gilbert Learning Center and to endow the foundation for years
to come. Construction costs for the facility have been estimated to be
$3,500,000 and a yearly endowment of $500,000 will be needed for fixed
operational costs, maintenance, and program instruction.
Your belief in the game of golf and its future through today's youth
is very important. Larry wanted every young boy and girl to have a
chance to learn the game of golf, and with the learning center, his
desire will become reality.
