The biggest key to a successful junior golf program is fun. The lessons they learn in a good junior golf program will be carried through life.
GSJGA creates a fun environment where kids learn the game with their friends. Tournaments and clinics give the kids time outside to enjoy the fresh air. Golf will teach them personal responsibility, how to manage their emotions when things don't go their way, and it's a sport they can play their whole lives.
