Played at The Lightning Bug Family Golf Course - College Grove, TN.
Funds raised each year are given to the Tennessee Golf Foundation, “earmarked” for the JFJGSF.
A small portion of the funds raised to help offset the burden of utilizing city water to irrigate the course.
Our goal in 2005 was to raise $2,000 and provide three scholarships which average about $645.00 per child. Since 2005, we have provided funding for over 149 deserving young golfers to attend The Academy with an amount of over $130,000.
14 deserving junior golfers were able to attend the 2016 Tennessee PGA Junior Golf Academy.
Tuition for a week of camp is is $645 and many of the scholarships go to young people that have never been to an overnight camp before.
All donations are 100% tax deductible.
