Junior Golf Ireland Program
Aim of JGI
JGI wants you to learn the game of golf in school or a club in a fun environment so that you will play the game for as long as you like at a level which you feel comfortable. This might mean that some golfers will play loads and reduce their handicap a lot, maybe even play for their country and for others it might mean that they will play golf so that they can spend time with their friends and have fun. Whichever way you choose to play golf JGI wants you to enjoy it and play it for life!
What is the Junior Golf Ireland Coaching Programme?
