Who We Are

The Gator Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit youth development program that focuses on teaching golf skills and life skills through the game of golf.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to enhance the lives of youth by promoting team-building, establishing mentorship, and building character through the game of golf. We strive to build a foundation in our juniors’ lives that begins on the golf course and matures to success in life. The building blocks to our curriculum are Character Development, Mentorship, and Teamwork. 


Our Vision

Our Vision is to establish a First Tee Chapter in Gainesville by 2020. The First Tee is a national program that has a presence in all 50 states. To achieve this, we must grow our current program to 300 students, 60 volunteers, and a system of lead instructors. With your help, we can help grow Gainesville's first nonprofit junior golf program into a First Tee chapter.
