College Golf Experience (CGX) and the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) have combined forces for a first of its kind endorsement, leading to junior golfers having unprecedented access to learning what collegiate golf is like directly from coaches and players. Through this innovative partnership, coaches will showcase their programs via camps and unique events presented by CGX and participating college and university golf teams.
CGX is committed to building value for college coaches and creating unique and transformational opportunities for junior golfers at all stages of development with an emphasis on aspiring collegiate student-athletes. CGX events establish opportunities to prepare young athletes for the future, allows coaches to connect with potential recruits, and advance the junior golf Player Pathway.
Participants engage in seminars related to: formatting communications to college coaches, learning what it takes to play golf at the collegiate level, life of a collegiate golfer, and learning how to separate from other recruits; as well as skill contests, simulated practice round and tournament experiences, and Q&A discussions with their parents.
CGX was formed by golf industry leader Joshua Jacobs, founder and CEO of TGA Premier Golf, the top provider of after school introductory and camp-based junior golf programs. Joshua was named by Golf Magazine and Sports Illustrated as one of the Top 40 most influential people in golf under 40, has served on the World Golf Foundation Advisory Board, PGA’s Golf 2.0’s National Building Blocks Committee, TGA Sports Foundation’s Board of Directors, the Southern California PGA’s Foundation Advisory Committee and the Southern California PGA’s Growth of the Game Committee.
