Helping the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation to underwrite the Junior Golf Association and Junior Golf TOUR
The Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation and the Junior Golf Association (JGA) are looking for help in starting this new and exciting fundraising program. The JGA is a fun and welcoming place for youth golfers of all skill levels and gives them the opportunity to compete at some of the areas top courses in Connecticut (excluding lower Fairfield County) and Western Massachusetts. Boys and girls who have played on the TOUR have gone on to play at the collegiate level and some are now PGA Professionals in our Section. Each year the Foundation completely underwrites the Junior TOUR because of the fundraising efforts of our PGA Professionals, parents, and charity events. Because of these efforts, JGA member dues and tournament dues have been able to remain affordable for all. We hope to continue this trend and want you to involve yourself through this initiative. The Foundation also helps support other causes around the section such as Military Veterans, Special Olympics, Golfers in Motion, PGA Junior League, and many more.
Modeled after PGA Professional Stan McLennan's program at Suffield Country Club, this program aims to engage Certifying Professionals, JGA Members, and their respective golf clubs in a summer long fundraising effort. Each JGA member and his or her certifying professional will collect pledge donations for each birdie made while on the Junior Golf TOUR this season. Birdies will be tracked throughout the season and each club can display the results in their own manner.
Ask your certifying PGA Professional about the program and how to collect donations. Professionals will be collecting all donations as part of their Drive for the Game efforts that will benefit the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation. Any questions can also be directed to the Section Office as well.
