Entities unite to create experiences bringing together college coaches, juniors, and parents.

LOS ANGELES, CACollege Golf Experience (CGX), exclusively endorsed by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), announces a new partnership with the Southwest PGA Section (SWPGA). This new partnership will provide SWPGA’s Junior Prep Tour members and parents the opportunity to learn and become educated about collegiate golf and recruiting through unprecedented access to college coaches in an immersive, fun and educational setting. CGX will also host several camps in conjunction with SWPGA Junior Tour events over the next three years.

"We are honored to support and partner with the SWPGA, and their junior golf programs and successful Junior Prep Tour where so many aspire to play college golf,” said CGX Founder Joshua Jacobs. “Creating partnerships with PGA Sections like the SWPGA allows us to provide a valuable platform for their juniors and parents to have first-class opportunities to directly engage with college coaches, guide them down a path to showcase their talents, and achieve their goals of becoming college golfers.”


CGX is the only camp and curriculum of its kind built completely around the participation of college coaches and offers a tremendous opportunity for young men and women of all abilities (ages 8-18) to learn from and interact with multiple coaches. Campers focus on all areas of instruction with an emphasis on wedge play, engage in simulated collegiate practice and tournament rounds, learn from seminars and Q&A sessions hosted by coaches, and receive personalized evaluations.

CGX and SWPGA will also co-develop joint marketing efforts, to promote camps and sectional junior tour events together while helping to build awareness among junior golfers and their parents on how to achieve their goals.

"The Southwest PGA is excited to partner with College Golf Experience,” said Michael Miller, Chief Executive Officer of the Southwest PGA. “CGX continues to open doors for college coaches to be involved in Junior Golf Camps, which provides additional opportunities for junior golfers who aspire to play golf at the collegiate level."
