About the Western NC Junior Golf Association:
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THE WNCJGA?
Our goal is to maintain a professionally run, nonprofit organization that enables newcomers and experienced junior golfers to play competitive golf and realize their fullest potential in the great game. The WNCJGA tournament golf program will consist of two competitive divisions in order to accommodate juniors of all experience levels. A Varsity Division will play 18-hole events, while a Junior Varsity Division will compete in 9-hole events, all at WNC's premier golf courses. We will provide the best possible venue for competitive junior golf while teaching sportsmanship, golf etiquette, and the traditional game in a friendly environment.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE WNCJGA?
The WNCJGA was started in 1996 and is patterned after the successful San Diego Junior Golf Program. LPGA Class-A teaching professional and 1997 LPGA Teacher of the Year Diane McHeffey began the nonprofit WNCJGA to make golf accessible to juniors in the local area. Her efforts and those of scores of volunteers have guaranteed the success and growth of this organization.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE WNCJGA?
As a member, each child will experience the game of golf in a fun, competitive, and friendly environment. Each child's WNCJGA membership card will entitle them to a variety of discounts at local golf courses, golf shops, and participating driving ranges.
