The Junior Golf Association of Hawaii is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide an environment where a junior golfer, male or female ages 7-18, can enjoy golf and progress at his or her own rate from beginner to a proficient level while promoting and preserving the traditions and integrity of the game.

A message to our JGAH Ohana - COVID-19

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic impact in Hawaii JGAH has decided to suspend its activities. This will mean that the following tournaments scheduled will be cancelled.

CANCELLED - April 11, 2020, Turtle Bay Player's Tour

CANCELLED - June 1, 2020, Hoakalei Country Club Player's Tour

Junior Golf Association of Hawaii (JGAH) is proud to announce an initiative aimed at increasing the access, growth and development of junior golfers in Hawaii. JGAH was awarded funding by the Friends of Hawaii Charities (source of funding is the Sony Open) to provide financial support and assistance to junior golfers who want to play the game of golf by competing in locally organized golf tournaments but may not have the means to pay the JGAH membership and cost of participating in year-round tournaments. “We are thrilled that funding organizations like the Friends of Hawaii Charities support JGAH’s mission and purpose to contribute to the overall growth and development of young golfers while strengthening the game of golf,” announced Guy Moriwaki, JGAH’s President.

Qualified families may submit their application through our website.

Applications will be reviewed by members of the JGAH Board of Directors. The number of awards will be determined based on the number of applicants. The range of financial support may vary from full payment of the JGAH membership and all JGAH tournament entry fees, to financial support for an individual tournament in 2020.
