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.

Get Ready for 2020!

The holiday season is upon us, but we're getting ready for the next golf season. To kick things off, JGAH will be holding its 2020 Season General Membership meeting soon after the new year.

For new and returning players, we will outline our new season, provide information about registration, and we hope to have some sample shirts available for sizing purposes. Some of the changes from last season will be covered, too. We'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about the organization or tournaments or other events planned for the season. Everyone is welcome to attend—especially those who may be new to the organization—so tell your friends!

2019 Tournament Information

Thank you to our members for a fantastic 2019 golf season! You've invested so much of your time and money into helping make our tournaments into truly wonderful and memorable experiences for our juniors. We must give credit to our parents and grandparents who regularly volunteer and help make the tournaments run much more smoothly. And the outpouring of donations of drinks and snacks for each tournament exhibits not only your generosity but also your belief in and dedication to our program. We simply can't thank you enough!

We also hope you enjoyed our year-end festivities, including the tournament, the evening program, the banquet itself, and especially the fellowship. By the many smiles we saw that night, we felt it was very successful! A big mahalo must go out to each of our major sponsors! Without their financial help and support, this kind of celebration would not be possible. Please support our wonderful sponsors:


And very big mahalos to the many other individuals who have generously donated money and prizes for our year-end banquet. We truly appreciate your generosity and help in making our annual event a big success!
