Established in 1993, the Santa Cruz County Junior Golf Association (SCCJGA) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, whose charter is to provide all junior golfers and prospective junior golfers, between the ages of six and eighteen, the opportunity to participate in an organized golf program that offers a fun and safe atmosphere. The SCCJGA is committed to minimizing barriers, financial or otherwise, that might prohibit participation in the game of golf.
The philosophy behind the SCCJA is to give junior players the opportunity to learn the rules and etiquette of golf via the Rules, Etiquette, Pace and Safety (REPS) course, to progress via clincs and lessons, and to measure progress by tournament play.
All players are required to complete the R.E.P.S. course each year, including new members, returning members, high school team players, and players who have taken lessons from golf schools and professionals ( the only exception is for returning Gold players ). At the R.E.P.S. course, each member is given a rules book, a fun lecture, and an open book test to complete. When the test is turned in they will receive a membership card.
- Help all players achieve an understanding and appreciation for the rules of the game.
- Provide opportunities to advance through tournament play to progress through the various card levels: Green, Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
- Provide positive feedback and awareness of the area(s) that need improvement. Establish goals for skill improvement.
- For our players to develop the basic fundamental skills necessary to keep play moving ~ and have FUN!
Board of Directors - The board of directors are all unpaid volunteers and new volunteers are always welcome.
