-The Monterey County Gives! team.
Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association (PBJG) 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 a 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. We not only provide the skills needed to excel on the course, but also the personal skills necessary to succeed in life. PBJG merges athletic and academic achievement through an annual scholarship program.
Our Big Idea is to impact one child at a time through the game of golf. Our children are the future and investing in their personal development benefits families and communities. Golf helps young children grow into mature responsible adults by allowing children to disengage from social media and enjoy time with family and friends. Children are taught perseverance, humility and self-discipline while experiencing the satisfaction of advancing through skill levels. The personal skills gained through the game of golf extend far beyond the game and become foundational for future success in school, business, and life. We are raising funds to create awareness and reach children who can most benefit from learning golf at a young age, progress through the program, and ultimately compete for one of our college scholarships. Every child who benefits by participating in Pebble Beach Junior Golf programs, will greatly contribute to his or her community.
The Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association has given me countless opportunities to play golf at some of the most famous golf courses in the world. Playing golf competitively with PBJG from a young age has taught me so much about myself and my peers. Through my golf game, I have learned how important it is to stay in the present moment. My teammates and opponents have taught me the importance of surrounding yourself with supportive people, both on and off the golf course. Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association has shaped me into the person I am today by guiding choices I have made along the way with a sense of composure and competence that was instilled in me by this association at a young age, and for that, I am forever grateful.
