Facts about COJGA

Junior golfers from the ages of 9-18 can play up to one tournament each week throughout the summer months. Participants from the ages of 6-8 can play up to three tournaments during the summer months. The 6-8 year olds, play shorter "pitch and putt" courses, while our older participants play on full size courses. These competitions are intended to foster growth for all junior golfers with regard to their self-confidence, respect for the game, themselves and others.

It is also our goal to maintain low tournament fees in order that cost does not impede participation. The golf courses where our participants play are donated for each COJGA tournament. Because of this generosity, we are able to keep our playing fees low. We charge our players $20 to play an event. This fee includes lunch which is prepared by the host golf club. We also have scholarships. We want to offer this opportunity to each participant who wants to play golf.

We are only able to keep our playing fees low because of our outside sponsorship. It will cost the COJGA organization about $56,000 to operate in 2010. Approximately $15,000 of the total expenditures is funded by donations. We are a volunteer organization, other than our Tournament Director, who receives a stipend for managing each of our tournaments. The COJGA Board of directors is comprised of 15 to 20 parents plus several PGA Professionals who donate their time and energy for the benefit of the participants.
