JFGA specializes in junior golf development, Juniors who have the dream of playing in college or professionally are educated on what it takes to achieve that dream. Parents are also educated on what tournaments and colleges would be a good fit for their child.
Adult lessons are also available. The key to helping adult's is to identify the weaknesses in their game whether it's swing technique, short game, strength/flexibility, or mental game. We attack that weakness and then help the student understand how to practice to maintenance their tendency and to shoot consistent scores
