About Us


(Founder, Willie Horton Sr.)

The Greater Cleveland Junior Golf Scholarship Fund (GCJGSF) was established in October 1980 by five (5) Cleveland area parents.  This tax exempt 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization is designed to provide an instructional program for youth, ages 6-18 in the sport of golf.  The primary target group is underrepresented children.

Our objectives are to provide:

  • Golf instructions to youth ages 6 through 18 years old.

  • A comprehensive instructional golf program based on current PGA guidelines.

  • A structured program that develops and rewards excellence in the achievement of academic and personal goals.

  • Financial assistance and information towards their pursuit of higher education beyond high school.

  • Access to a network of mentors from the Greater Cleveland business, professional, religious and political communities.
