Middle School Golf Program
The North Florida Junior Golf Foundation is proud to develop and coordinate the North Florida Middle School Golf Program. Annually (February-May) middle schools throughout the Jacksonville area (without a funded golf program) are invited to participate in this great program. We are able to provide this outstanding GROWTH OF THE GAME initiative with funds raised through the sale of PGATOUR sponsor tickets to THE PLAYERS and through grants provided by the Florida Junior Golf Council via the sale of license plates. You can help this effort by purchasing a golfing license plate (anytime) or PLAYERS ticket (December-May).
Annually as many as 18 middle schools from three area counties (Clay, Duval and Nassau) have come together to help grow the game of golf for our youngsters (boys and girls). The schools are coordinated into groups and meet weekly at various local clubs for instruction and on-course play. These clubs have included: Blue Sky Golf Club, Blue Cypress Golf Club, Brentwood Golf Club, Hidden Hills Golf Club, Windsor Parke Golf Club and the University of North Florida’s John Hayt Golf Learning Center. Our teaching staff includes Coaches from each of the participating schools and PGA and LPGA Professionals:
- Jack Aschenbach, PGA Executive Director
- Lynne Kirkpatrick, LPGA – Middle School Coordinator
- Mike Charrie
- Susan Waite, PGA
- Matt Moscinski
