The YOUTH EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP FUND (Y.E.S.) Golf Tournament is organized by the Steamboat Springs Chamber Ambassadors. The funds are awarded in two categories, consisting of Routt County high school graduating seniors and past recipients of the scholarship still enrolled.
To date, $176,000 in total funding has been awarded.
The Y.E.S. Golf Tournment is played at Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed course, managed by Troon Golf.
The tournment is followed by a Chamber After-Hours Mixer where there will be food, drinks, and prizes. The mixer is open to Chamber members and their guests.

It is an annual rite of spring and the perfect way to kick off the golfing season,” said Stacy Huffman, Tournament Director for the 2013 Y.E.S.
