Our Organization

Humble Beginnings

The Junior Golf Association of Broward County, Inc. was founded in 1968 by Steve and Olga Purdo to provide their children with a positive and fun-filled activity during the summer months.  Since the first event, the JGA has become one of the largest junior golf organizations in the United States whereby all the members reside in one county.  Over the years, many adult volunteers dedicated to the promotion of golf for Juniors have contributed to the success of this program.

Each year during the months of June, July, and August, up to 400 Junior boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 18 participate in our program.  We are fortunate to play on some of the finest golf courses in Broward County with the cooperation of the owners, members, and golf pros at these courses.

Amazing Summer

Principles Of Our Organization


The JGA requests parent/guardian to volunteer in at least one (1) of the weekly tournaments and at least one (1) of the Championship Days.

We have specially formulated divisions to cater to the skill level of every member in our junior golf organization. No matter your skill level, you’ll find a place to hone your skills and have fun!


JGA is more than simply a junior golf organization; we are deeply rooted in our community. As such, we instill values into our players that extend far beyond the golf course and into their daily lives.
