Depending on a players golfing ability, they participate in one of twelve (12) divisions and play rounds of 3, 5, 9 or 18 holes. Please note that most weeks tournaments are held at two locations based on the players division. Please be sure to note each week the course your players division will be playing at.
Medals are presented to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each flight (see “Rules for Advancing” for player advancement).
Newcomers, Developing Golfers or Transitioning Athletes
The JGA was formed over 50 years ago. It provides young people with the opportunity to engage in a friendly golf competition. It’s a great place to make new friends who share the desire to learn the great game of golf. Parents with kids between the age of 6-18 that are interested in learning how to play golf, are transitioning to golf from another sport, or are adding golf to their athletic resume are encouraged to register them for the JGA and get them started in an affordable program that teaches lifelong values and skills. With a combined 12 divisions specifically designed to match the skill level of boys and girls – regardless of their age – the JGA offers a fun, challenging and rewarding experience for everyone!
Experienced and Advanced Players
While attracting new, young players to the game of golf has been at the core of the JGA for over 50 years, our program also develops and attracts experienced and advanced golfers who are looking to test their abilities against some of the best players in South Florida. Whether your son or daughter is a JGA veteran who has worked their way up through our divisions, a new resident that recently moved to the area, or an accomplished high school player who wants to sharpen their game over the summer and prepare for the upcoming school golf season, our Junior and Championship divisions will deliver exactly what they are looking for! Our top divisions are typically occupied by 13 to 18 year old boys and girls who want to compete against Broward and Palm Beach County’s best players on some of the finest public and private courses in Florida.
