Driving Forward Together. Championing the Next Generation of Golfers

Reach One, Teach One

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive golf program that nurtures the development of youth and through mentorship, we aim to instill life skills and promote higher education. By creating a supportive and inclusive environment, we empower young golfers to excel both on and off the golf course.

Greater Cleveland Junior Golf Scholarship Fund (GCJGSF) provides a comprehensive instructional golf program for youth ages 6-18, with a focus on underrepresented children. In addition to golf instruction, GCJGSF offers mentorship, promotes education through scholarships, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf and Youth On Course memberships to all participants.

GCJGSF encourages and sponsors its junior golfers to participate in numerous local and out-of-state golf tournaments, promoting the development of minority male and female golfers. The organization also hosts its own in-house PGA Jr. League which was established in 2023 to provide additional competitive opportunities for its members.

" It most importantly taught me that "golf is a metaphor for life": That metaphor has three key life lessons: do your best, play with integrity and have fun! "
