The Traverse City Junior Golf Foundation provides children the opportunity to participate, learn and grow by playing golf. The Foundation provides lessons, scholarships and supports the TCJGA In-School Golf Program. We invite you to join our 'Drive for Junior Golf' campaign so we can continue providing these oportunities.
During the spring and summer of 2014, the TCJGA will hold 63 junior tournaments
in seven different divisions
of competition for boys and girls ages 18
and under, plus a collegiate division
The TCJGA Junior Golf Lesson Program will hold 16 lesson sessions during
the 2014 season for boys and girls
ages 5 through 15.
The Traverse City Junior Golf Association
first "teed-off" in the summer of 1984.
Since that time, the association has offered
instruction and competitive programs to
thousands of junior and collegiate golfers.
Most are from northwestern Michigan, but
many come from all areas of the state and
beyond. Membership in 2013 was over 290 juniors.
In this program, golfers, from age 5 to 22, develop their game, learn etiquette, and gain self-confidence while playing and on some of the finest golf facilities in northern Michigan.
It is the goal of the Traverse City Junior Golf Association to continue providing new and current junior players with a program recognized by many as one of the best in the United States.
