Northern Florida's Junior Golf Foundation
The North Florida Junior Golf Foundation is the area's only not-for-profit organization committed to providing opportunities to junior golfers interested in gaining experience in junior golf tournaments and/or to compete for the love of the game. Based in Jacksonville, Florida, the NFJG Foundation runs the only area's premier Junior Golf Tour and is the only junior tour sponsored by the PGA Tour, Web.com, The Tom Burnett Golf Academy, and the Northern Chapter PGA.
Endorsed by PGA Professionals of the Northern Chapter, North Florida Section of the PGA, The NFJG has several tours designed to fit junior players' specific game level:
The North Florida Junior Golf Foundation is the pinnacle organization for junior golf in the North Florida area. The Board of Directors, Tournament Director, staff, and volunteers will work with the golf community to develop and operate a junior golf tour that is professional, positive and champions the journey of junior golfers in developing their game. The organization and members will grow in size and standards to meet the needs of this junior golf community. The Board will function as the policy maker, oversee the operations of the organization and fulfill the strategic plan. The Committees will drive the major functions of the organization to reach out in the community and bring in the necessary resources to continually move NFJGF in a forward direction as an advocate of junior golf. NFJGF will hire, support, and financially compensate professionals to run events and operate the infrastructure of the organization. The NFJGF is well known to all in the golf community – local professionals, golf professionals, golf course members, country club members, public and private school golf teams and coaches, and parents and backers of junior golf.
NFJGF provides local junior golfers, ages 7-18, an opportunity to be a member of the organization which will allow them to play in competitive tournaments that are affordable, professional and are consistent with the USGA Rules of Golf and the Conditions of Competition. The tournaments and events provide an opportunity for junior golfers to build a solid foundation, gain tournament experience, and compete among their peers for the love of the game. The experience will help prepare junior golfers, if they so desire, to compete in any State or National event. NFJGF will also promote, fund, and manage a scholarship. NFJGF will strive to provide scholarships to junior golfers that have participated as a member, uphold the values of the organization, and pursue a degree at an accredited college or university.
The values governing NFJGF will be to operate the organization and impact young people with integrity, honesty, and fairness. We will promote the values of self-esteem and pride in our events, with our members, among each other and the community. Our decisions will be made with an objective, fact-based thought process. We will work together to nurture independent thinking, which fosters taking responsibility for one’s own actions.

In The Spotlight
One of the great things about being the Executive Director of the North Florida Junior Golf Foundation and Tour is that I have the distinct pleasure of meeting and knowing many great diversified junior players, their parents, grandparents and siblings with outstanding stories. It’s truly an honor to give back and recognize one of the many families or individuals who have given so much. So, for this “In the Spotlight” moment I would like to recognize and showcase a young lady who knows the meaning of being committed, dedicated and the fight needed to win over all obstacles. This youngster is a success story on and off of the golf course. "ALYZABETH AN MORGAN”.
An ALL inspiring story
Alyzabeth Morgan attended Orange Park Elementary school through 6th grade and is now in 8th grade at Orange Park Junior High. She is now a 14 year old, a bit taller, a bit more muscular, a little wiser and has a set of teenager braces on her teeth, all normal growing pains for one of the up and coming youth golfers in Clay County, but not deterring her from continuing her goal to be one of the best young golfers in America.
The Morgan family (Ford Alyson, and Alyzabeth) recently moved to the Eagle Harbor neighborhood, to be closer to Alyzabeth's home golf course. They all enjoy living at Eagle Harbor for the friendly, family atmosphere and the excellent teaching professionals like her PGA Professionals and Coach Bryan Kipnis and Stephanie Connelly Eiswerth.
Next year, Alyzabeth will enter high school with a goal of making the school golf team as a Freshman, either at Fleming Island High School or Ridgeview High School. Hopefully, the game of golf will be a lifelong gift for Alyzabeth to enjoy.
Alyzabeth Morgan has been on the NFJG TOUR since June of 2014. She has played in 117 NFJG TOUR events and has championed events 37 times with 32 Runner-up Awards. She was named the 2017 and 2018 Player of Year and has captured the City Junior Amateur, Greater Jacksonville Junior Championship, King and Bear Open 3-times, Web.com Junior Tour Championship and, The National Challenge to name a few. Alyzabeth has a low round of “73” in tournament play.
