About Us

The SCGA Junior Golf Foundation inspires kids by creating a fun, engaged community that develops character through mentorship and empowerment. We create local golf communities that provide a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for youth to have fun, explore their future and develop the necessary skills to achieve their goals.

What We Do

Our Programs

Golf Club

The SCGA Junior Golf Club includes the Youth on Course, which allows junior golfers to access $1-$5 green and range fees at more than 130 courses in SoCal and more than 1600 courses in North America. The Golf Club also includes Club Outings and access to the Scholarship program.

Player & Youth Development

The PYD program combines high-impact golf and positive youth development curriculums to give a junior access to everything they need to succeed in the game including: group classes, one-on-one lessons, equipment, casual and competitive on-course play, uniforms and more!

Girls Golf

Through LPGA*USGA Girls Golf chapters, girls are exposed to role models and peers who help them feel comfortable on the course and inspire them beyond it. Regular programming and special events combine golf with social or educational activities.


SCGA Junior participants are eligible for scholarships, allowing them to pursue dreams of higher education regardless of whether they play golf at the next level. Foundation Scholars are engaged members of the community and frequently mentor younger juniors.
