The JGA of Broward County was founded in 1968 by Steve and Olga Purdo to provide their children with a positive and fun filled activity during the summer months. Since the first event, the JGA has become one of the largest junior golf organizations in the United States. Over the years, many adult volunteers dedicated in the promotion of golf for juniors have contributed to the success of this program. Without these dedicated volunteers, this program could not continue.

Each year during the months of June, July, and August up to 400 junior boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18 participate in this program. We are very fortunate to play some of the finest golf courses in Broward County with the cooperation of the owners, members, and golf pros at these courses.

Juniors in the program learn the rules and etiquette of golf, good sportsmanship, and making lasting friendships. The JGA of Broward County is proud of the many juniors who have attended college on golf scholorships, those who have gone into the professional ranks, and also those golfers who were helped by the junior program.

The season consists of 7 - one day events and a championship. Each event is flighted by ability, usually 12 flights, 8 for boys and 4 for girls and the format varies from 3 to 18 hole events.
