SAF Junior Golf Events

For those of you new to SAF, here is a brief breakdown of what we have done lately to help improve junior golf in our communities

  • SAF has partnered with junior golf organizations to offer exposure opportunities that are cost effective. Most junior golfers do not receive the proper exposure to get recruited for college golf because of the lack of financial recruiting resources and small institutions.
  • College Coaches are in attendance to evaluate junior golfers during the “combine” portion in full swing, short game and putting. The second part of the showcase is tournament play, which offers the players an opportunity to gain valuable tournament experience, while college coaches observe them under pressure situations.

Past Events:
