Learn about the Junior Players Golf Academy
The Junior Players Golf Academy's mission is to help prepare junior golfers to compete in National level tournament play and receive a college scholarship. The core competency of the JPGA is to recognize and respect each student's individuality. The JPGA approach is to get the student to commit to long-term athletic development, incorporating all aspects of training into a successful path to becoming the best athlete possible. This is all possible through the talented and personable staff and most importantly the limited student to teacher ratio that we take very seriously.
Our campuses provide first-class golf instruction using state-of-the-art training tools, professional grade fitness equipment, top rated college preparatory academies, and deluxe accommodations with a southern charm. Both locations are just within walking distance of many activites including; the beach, soccer, baseball fields, biking, fishing, boating, local shops and restaurants, and more.
Through a supportive and competitive environment, the JPGA develops the qualities of commitment, goal setting and confidence for each student's personal, academic, and athletic growth. The dedication of the instructors to teaching and coaching, on and off the course, helps juniors become champions. The JPGA program includes mental conditioning and physical training as they are important to building golf athletes who can play more competitively. The goal is to offer juniors the opportunity to develop into accomplished athletes, successful at the collegiate level and beyond.
Another integral part of the program is on-course instruction. The Instructor reinforces swing thoughts and provides in-depth course management. The JPGA educates the student on the importance of the 'Rules of Golf'. Taking the students on the course covers the more specific techniques that are used in course management and facilitates what is learned during practice to benefit performance. To produce champion golfers they must be capable of managing themselves on and off the course.
The JPGA does not teach a strict swing method. Many teachers and golf schools attempt to teach every student the same swing with the promise that if they can master the method or fit a certain model swing, there will be perfection at the end of the road. This cookie cutter approach to playing and learning is usually not very productive, especially for a young player who has already established his own personal style. The fact is there is no perfect swing that fits everybody. Proof of this can be seen as close as the television. There are many different swings being used successfully on the professional tours, but no matter their personal styles, they all share some common traits. These common denominators that all great players share are the true fundamentals of golf.
The JPGA approach is to teach students individually based upon their specific needs. There is a margin left for individual styles and preferences, as long as the laws of ball flight are being observed.
The coaching staff is trained to identify each student's individual needs in order to implement a plan for self-development. Having knowledge of the swing is a very important asset for an accomplished player to have. One of our goals is to teach the student to be their own best coach, be able to identify and diagnose their own game and understand what their personal strengths and weaknesses are.
Golf is a game where one never stops learning. The JPGA will increase your knowledge level on the full swing, short game, mental management, and of course the most important aspect of all, learning how to score.

Just had my first lesson with Adam as my coach. He was OUTSTANDING! Although I am not a young student, I can see how the philosophy and business practices of this academy is second to none in the industry. I would highly recommend this program to all families.Melanie D. Ludwig
We are really pleased with how our son has developed at JPGA and with his scholarship to UNCG which has a great coach and program - we feel it will suit Tommy and us very well. We feel his game is really developing well with strength, speed and control and he is working very hard on his mental game (not to mention continuing to ace it in the classroom)Mike
Great organization!, look forward to each post and i see potential that all these young ladies and gentlemen have to go on and make it into the "Big Time"Ryan James Wilkie
