The Ridgefield Golf Course Improvement Fund (RGCIF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization started in 2012 by a group of Ridgefield golfers and the town golf professional. The initiative came from a love of the game, pride in our unique and lovely town golf course and a desire to improve the course by funding course improvement projects.
In the early years, we held fundraising events like golf outings, 5k races, silent auctions, etc. Almost all the bunkers on the course were renovated using these funds. Additionally, we built the staircase on the forward 16th tee, and did the tree clearing for the new range netting. In more recent years, we have counted on regular donations rather than running specific fund-raising events.
Many of you have been regular donors over the years without being solicited, and we thank you for that. We have not done any active fundraising since 2019, feeling that people had more than enough on their plates with the Covid problem and the associated shutdowns.
