The Girls Performance Initiative Mission:

  • Conduct a regional amateur women’s competition, the Prairie Invitational, which allows Kansas City area residents and junior golfers to gauge their abilities against the area’s best players.
  • To offer local development and playing opportunities for the area’s best junior players.
  • We offer local and national grants/scholarships for competition to remove barriers to competition for girls in our region.
  • To provide grants to high school teams and organizations working to promote and grow girls golf in Kansas City and Kansas.

“The new Bushnell rangefinders will better help our girls understand their distances off the tee, strategize their approach shots, and become more cerebral about the game of golf. They also were able to replace some of our old GPS units that the program has had for 5+ years. The girls are excited to have a new golf tool that is specifically for them; not shared with the boys’ program.

-Trevor Ewert, Chanute High School, 2024 Recipient
