Since 2013 our junior tournaments have been recognized by the Junior Golf Scoreboard organization for excellence. Learn more about the Junior Golf Scoreboard and how they help make the game of junior golf better.
We have been developing players for 40 years. Hundreds of Southwest Florida Junior Golfers have attended our program.
Every year the SWFJGA offers a college scholarship program that rewards our graduating members and past players.
We teach golf under tournament conditions. Using the Rules of Golf, we build individual character, integrity, sportsmanship and lifelong friendships.
Each year, the SWFJGA grants college scholarships to deserving high school seniors who have participated in SWFJGA. The Southwest Florida Junior Golf Association awards two very prestigious namesake scholarships in honor of Patty Berg and Nolan Henke; the Patty Berg – most all rounded female and the Nolan Henke – most all rounded male participant in SWFJGA.
Our scholarship program funds are received through various avenues. Funds are raised through Tournaments like the Adult/Juniors and Nolen Henke/ Patty Berg Junior Master and Pro-Am and from generous donations from individuals and organizations like the PGA Professionals of Southwest Florida and The South Florida PGA Foundation. Without the continued support of Cypress Lake Country Club and so many other local golf courses we could not be able to award these scholarships on an annual basis and provide a great environment for our area junior golfers.
SWFJGA is an organization run by a volunteer board of directors with the help and assistance of volunteer parents at the events. With the help of these dedicated volunteers, this organization has touched thousands of kids in our community and continues to provide a venue to support the wonderful lessons achieved through the game of golf.
