Junior Golf Foundation of America


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.

Due to the Coronavirus, the Palm Beach County School District made the decision to close schools effective Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020.  Following the lead of the School Board, First Tee, LPGA-USGA Girls Golf and South Florida PGA, the JGFA will suspend all junior group programs and camps starting tomorrow Saturday, March 14 through Sunday, March 29.

All pre-payments will be moved to April, however please contact your group instructor if you prefer a refund. 
Individual private lessons are to be determined between parent, junior and professional. 
Until further notice, the Golf Courses are opened for anyone who would like to practice or play.  

We understand that this virus brings some uncertainty and nervousness. Please know that we are doing all that we can to ensure the health and safety of all golfers in our programs.  

Thank you for your understanding.  
Hope everyone stays safe and healthy!
