The mission of the SCGA Junior Foundation is to engage under-served youth in the lifelong benefits of golf so that they can achieve their dreams and potential. Through its programs, SCGA Junior works to fulfill its mission by achieving the following goals:
Creating affordable access to golf for all youth
Teaching smart decision-making skills both on and off the course
Developing a culture of healthy lifestyles
The SCGA Junior Golf Foundation was founded in 1983 through a gift from the PGA Championship, which was played at Riviera Country Club. It is the charitable arm of the Southern California Golf Association, which is one of the nation’s oldest and largest amateur golf associations. The SCGA underwrites all administrative and development expenses, allowing every dollar raised to go directly to our youth serving programs.
General Golf Advocacy
The SCGA actively advocates on policy issues relevant to the organization by engaging responsibly with governmental officials, local and regional conservation groups and local and regional public commissions and committees.
