Thanks to the support of the Southern California Section officers and borad, and a dedicated Section staff, the SCPGA took a giant step to move into the high impact world of bringing golf to schools. Last August the SCPGA Board approved moving forward with TGA (Teach, Grow & Achieve) with a partnership that would provide the Section an opportunity to work with elementary and middle schools in North San Diego County and North Orange County.
The Section feels that boys and girls of elementary school and middle school are most impacted and impressed whether it be academics or sporting activities. By impacting the students with golf, that choice will lead to more opportunities to participate in the game as they grow older and attend high school and college and, of course, in life as well.
