Who is the Canadian Junior Golf Association?
The Canadian Junior Golf Association is a national junior golf association dedicated to providing high level competition and instruction to Canada’s junior golfers. The CJGA competitive developmental program begins at the age of five where beginning golfers are introduced to the game through the CJGA Linkster Program. The program continues to reflect the appropriate skill level and progression of junior golfers through its CJGA Junior Program that offers over 80 tour stops across Canada and includes regional, provincial, and national championships. The elite junior is also able to represent the CJGA and Canada at a number of international events.
Established in 1993, the Canadian Junior Golf Association had a specific goal in mind – to give junior golfers in Canada an opportunity to develop their competitive skills.
The Canadian Junior Golf Association is a not-for-profit “registered Canadian amateur athletic association” (RCAAA) with Revenue Canada.
Since the CJGA’s inception in 1993, the CJGA has improved the quality of competitive junior golf in Canada allowing many of its members to showcase their skills. College Coaches have recognized the talents of CJGA participants allowing them to further their growth through college golf scholarships.
