At the 2016 Annual Meeting the SCAGA Board of Directors renamed the SCAGA Volunteer of the Year to the Donna Sauve Award. Along with renaming the award after our long time SCAGA and USGA volunteer, Donna Sauve was also honored with this award.
Donna has had a great deal of influence in the Sun Country Amateur golf world through her volunteer efforts. It started about three decades ago when Donna became a USGA Committee Member. While volunteering for the USGA and working the events she thought New Mexico should host a championship. After persuading the USGA she brought the Women’s Amateur Public Links to Santa Ana Golf Club in 1999. Sauve also served as a past president of SCAGA from 1999-2000. After 25 years of service to the USGA Donna received the USGA Ike Grianger Award to honor all of her hard work.
From this point on, the association will honor Donna Sauve and give the award to a volunteer that aspires to be as hard working and dedicated to the game as she is.
