Welcome to the Junior Golf Association of Southwest Michigan (JGA)

2015 Online Registration CLOSED

The Junior Golf Association (JGA) was established in 1987 with the purpose of providing quality golf experiences for area juniors at affordable rates.

The JGA is divided into 4 age groups:

  • 12 & Under Instructional
  • 12 & Under Tournament
  • 13-15 Tournament
  • 16-18 Tournament


21 different area golf courses host our 35 events. The $60.00 registration fee if entered by June 10 makes the JGA the best value for junior golf anywhere. (The registration fee is $70.00 for entries received after June 10). The registration fee is all-inclusive for the 12 & Under age groups. For the 13-15 and 16-18 age groups, the registration fee includes five events and there is a $5.00 fee for each additional event.

July 28, 2015 will be Junior Golf Night at the Kalamazoo Growlers game.  Every paid participant will receive a ticket to the game and a Growlers hat.  Additional tickets may be purchased for $15.

The JGA has awarded 61 college scholarships totaling $85,000 to former participants since 1997 through the endowed Junior Golf Fund within the Kalamazoo Community Foundation. Visit our Annual Awards page to view past winners or to download the JGA Scholarship application form.

Information about other junior programs such as Junior Golf Leagues, Instructional Clinics, Competition Camps and the JGA Father-Son/Parent-Child Tournament are also available in our Programs section.

We look forward to another successful season. Remember to thank all of our host courses and professionals who help make the JGA such a success!
