We all have a passion for golf and an interest in seeing more youth play the game, advance their skills, excel academically, and establish careers. Fortunately, golf is a means for youth/young adults to accomplish those goals.
In addition to serving as the umbrella for leagues/clubs to have a voice in the proposed restoration at Jackson Park/South Shore, our mission for youth is to provide families with the resources and wherewithal for college scholarships, tournament fees, and other areas to keep children engaged in this sport we love.
Through partnerships and continued motivation to positively impact the lives of youth, we trained 16 juniors in our caddy program in the spring of 2019; partnered with Cousins Empowered Optimist (CEO) to offer coding classes as part of our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) initiative; and on August 8, 2020, JPGA awarded two Jackson Park caddies scholarships!
Our motivation to advance the goals of young adults who want to play golf professionally was achieved when we awarded a scholarship to DeVaughn Mathus. He played in the Advocates APGA Tournament at TPC Deere Run on August 16-17 in Silvis, IL.
The Jackson Park Golf Association cordially invites your organization to participate in our 3rd Annual JPGA Golf Invitational, Saturday, 9/19/2020 at 9:00 AM. Registration begins at 7:30 AM.
