Vision / Mission / Values
Located in Jacksonville, Florida, the North Florida Junior Golf Foundation exists to serve the needs of young players throughout the area. From junior golf tournaments to exciting events, we offer a series of resources for our members.
The North Florida Junior Golf Foundation will become 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. In two to four years NFJGF will be 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, 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 fund. 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 your actions.
