“At the Junior Golf Performance Academy, it is our mission to grow the game of golf through a culture of long-term development and mentorship. JGPA creates meaningful programs for every junior golfer, of all skill levels and ages. No matter where you are in the golf “Process”, the JGPA is there to help take your game to the next level.”

Our Initiative: GROW THE GAME

How can a sport like golf be the key to a child living a life full of enjoyment? It's simple. The game of golf connects all types of people and builds a strong moral compass. Golf teaches etiquette, discipline, and respect on the course and in life. 


Golf also does much more. Golf helps fight the largest epidemic to hit our nation in years. For the first time in history, the most recent generation of kids in America experience lower life spans due to a lack of physical activity and obesity. 


The Junior Golf Performance Academy at Quail Creek CC is committed to developing unique strategies and programs to help solve this issue among juniors. The JGPA offers promising junior golf programs that allow juniors to not only learn and develop as young, aspiring golfers, but truly enjoy the sport and keep active and healthy while doing it! We as an academy believe that golfers are strong athletes just like any other sport. Our junior athletes at JGPA take their mental and physical health very seriously, but still have fun in the process!
