George Puls, Jr. ’44 Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament

In the mid-1980’s, the Nueces County A&M Club and the 12th Man Foundation formed the Corpus Christi A&M Club’s Scholarship Golf Tournament as a scholarship fundraiser for the club. The tournament was a huge success, and, to this day, remains one of the club’s most successful fundraisers. On June 26, 1990, the Nueces County A&M Club, the 12th Man Foundation, and the Association of Former Students decided to name the tournament in honor of George Puls, Jr. ’44. Mr. Puls was the driving force in the organization and promotion of the tournament.

All proceeds collected from this tournament fund the Nueces County A&M Scholarship Program for local high school students. The George Puls, Jr. ’44 Memorial Golf Tournament is open to the public.

In 2018, Mr. & Mrs. George Puls, III, gave the Nueces County A&M Club a generous donation of $20,000. To properly thank the Puls family and to have Mr. Puls, Jr. ’44’s legacy live on, the club’s board of directors created an endowed scholarship through The Association of Former Students in Mr. Puls, Jr. ’44’s name.

We need just $5000 more to finish funding the endowed scholarship!

Our 2019 golf tournament goal is to raise and exceed that $5000 goal in order to fund the endowed scholarship and continue to fund our numerous other scholarships for deserving students in the Coastal Bend!
