The AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association is dedicated to introducing the game of golf to local youth ages 6 years to 17 years through quality instruction, etiquette, rules of the game, and competitive tournament play in an exciting and supportive environment. Our clinics, summer lessons, and year-round tournaments are offered at a variety of local golf courses across Monterey
County. Highly qualified coaches provide the skills needed to excel on the course and help instill knowledge and personal skills foundational for future success in school, careers, and life. The Association merges athletic and academic achievement through an annual scholarship program which helps qualified graduating seniors pursue their college dreams.
The Big Idea
AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association is expanding offerings and building awareness of the fundamental benefits gained
through participation in their junior golf programs. Children have been indoors for much of 2020 with little access to safe outdoor activities and team sports. Golf is an excellent and safe outlet for children, particularly in our current pandemic environment, and provides an opportunity to unplug from social media and enjoy time with family and friends. The association’s clinics, summer lessons, and year-round tournaments help children learn the game of golf and advance their golf skills. Children of all ages and skill levels learn integrity, perseverance, humility and self-discipline while experiencing the satisfaction of advancing through skill levels. The program’s locally-funded scholarship program has awarded over $1 million to deserving youth across Monterey County.
My mom first signed me up for an AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association tournament at Peter Hay Golf Course when I was 10. I never knew how much that would change my life. Ever since then, my passion for golf has only grown. I started playing in as many tournaments as I could. Every summer when I was younger I would go to the classes that the organization offered which helped my game a lot. Junior golf fueled my motivation to play college golf. I have made lots of friends with people I never would have met if it
was not for the tournaments. Because of the AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association, I discovered how much I love golf. Receiving the junior golf scholarship has helped me pay for the remainder of my college fees so I don't have to take out loans.
