We pride our work as a youth development organization that teaches The First Tee Life Skills curriculum to mentor our students to be better students, attend college and contributing responsible members of society. We also have many students that wish to play at a high level including middle school, high school and college golf. We even have our first student that has turned pro in Janelle Johnson.
Chapter ACE students Tyler Mistretta and Sebastian Nachilly both recently began their playing careers with the AJGA. As a result, a new partnership has developed between our Chapter and the AJGA. The AJGA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf and the AJGA’s ACE grant. The AJGA raises money to conduct their championships, fund their ACE grant and support other local charities.
To support the AJGA and our Chapter, please consider playing in the upcoming AJGA Junior-Am Tournament at Osprey Point Golf Course on May 22nd. Please CLICK HERE for more information, the entry form and sponsorship opportunities.
The AJGA also accepts in-kind donations such as:
• Staff Lodging –To cut costs they search for local families in the community to house an intern for the tournament week as they will have over 20 interns during the May event.
• Staff Meals – local restaurants or families can donate meals for AJGA staff.
• Product Donation – they are always in need of donated bottled water and fruit for the players at every AJGA event.
