About Us

Junior Golf Performance Academy

The Junior Golf Performance Academy, headquartered at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Florida, is the leader in long-term development programs for the junior golfer. The JGPA was created in Orlando, Florida by Founder Spencer Graham, and eventually relocated to Naples, Florida. Our professional staff is led by 14-time Junior World Championship coach, Spencer Graham III; PGA and TPI award-winning Professional, Thor Parrish; and an entire team of assistant professionals and golf management apprentices from Florida Gulf Coast University. JGPA is the fastest growing and most sought-after golf academy for junior elite, mid-level, and beginner players in South Florida. Coach Graham’s accomplishments include 14 junior world champions, 132 NCAA DI scholarships and 50,000+ lessons given in his 29-year coaching career. 


The JGPA has two amazing facilities to utilize for growing the game, Quail Creek Country Club and Quail Village Golf Club. We consist of the largest after-school group golf programs in Southwest Florida, offering an amazing opportunity to learn golf in a fun and educational environment. Our services also include our Elite 15 program, for highly skilled juniors from all over the world, in addition to our Advanced 20 group, our region's most competitive junior golfers. Our team of coaches also offer the very best in private lessons, golf camps, clinics, and playing lessons on the golf course.



“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!
