Lady Niners Contribute to the Junior Golf Association of Arizona

“Competing in the U.S. Women’s Amateur at Chambers Bay was a lifetime experience. Without the financial help of the JGAA foundation, playing in the event would not have been possible,” says a high school junior at Scottsdale Christian.

This is just one of many success stories this year from junior girl golfers in Arizona. From supporting high school golf teams through the “Build A Team” program, to the new college scholarship fund, grassroots girls golf with the Ladies Professional Golf Association and United States Golf Association girls golf programs, and assisting with expenses to compete in national championships, the Arizona Women’s Golf Association’s (AWGA) legacy lives on and continues to have a profound impact on girls golf in Arizona.

In May 2022, the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) took over management of these successful AWGA programs. While the Arizona Women’s Golf Association is no longer operational, the JGAA is proud to carry on and support the many junior girls programs the AWGA supported in the past several years.

Last month the Lady Niners made a generous contribution to the Junior Golf Association of Arizona foundation, in support of girls golf in Arizona. We are excited to assist them in building upon the programs the AWGA has funded for many years. Girls golf in Arizona is growing, and we are pleased to join the many great community supporters.
