The Junior Golf Foundation of America's mission is to provide all children the opportunity to learn and play the game of golf. The JGFA focuses on instilling the concept that golf is "More than a Game." This is accomplished through our comprehensive education and development program. Through golf, our purpose is to teach positive life values to our children, including honor, integrity, self-discipline, pride, respect, responsibility and sportsmanship.
