The CWGA junior girls' golf program is committed to promoting and teaching golf to young females within the state of Connecticut. In addition to learning golf skills and rules, our program will help build integrity, sportsmanship, confidence and teamwork. The girls will have the opportunity to compete, make new friends and have fun. Many of our junior girls go on to obtain golf scholarships and play college golf.
