College Golf Experience Exposure Camp headlined by decorated coaches providing education on all things college golf and the recruiting process

LOS ANGELES, CA –  College Golf Experience  (CGX), the leading junior golf program connecting juniors and parents with College Coaches, announces the West Coast Exposure Camp in San Diego will be held at The Links at Lakehouse, on January 6-7, 2024.

The CGX West Coast Exposure Camp will feature six top college coaches from the region, including three former professional golfers in Scott Simpson, Chris Riley, and Erynne Yoo. Simpson won seven times on the PGA Tour and after playing several senior events he retired to Hawaii and soon became involved in the junior golf scene before becoming head coach at Hawaii. Riley, coach at the University of San Diego, spent 13 seasons on the PGA Tour, winning the 2002 Reno-Tahoe Open and earning a spot on the 2004 Ryder Cup Team. Erynne Yoo, assistant coach for the University of California, Los Angeles competed in 26 LPGA events during her professional career. The CGX camp connects the coaches with girls and boys ages 13-18 who want to learn what it takes to play college golf, level up their game, and build relationships in an immersive educational environment.

“Our vision from the beginning has been to provide local opportunities for junior golfers and parents to connect with College Coaches to learn about, experience, and explore the pathway to college golf. With California being a hotbed for junior golf, the West Coast Exposure Camp in San Diego with DI and DIII coaches will form the vital connective tissue between junior golf and college golf,” says CGX Founder and CEO Joshua Jacobs. “When you couple that with celebrated coaches such as Scott Simpson, Chris Riley, Fred Hanover, and Erynne Yoo whose careers span from junior to college to professional golf to coaching, juniors and their parents are in for a transformative experience.”

About College Golf Experience

College Golf Experience (CGX) was established in 2021 with a first-of-its-kind endorsement from the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Through strategic partnerships with the top college golf coaches and institutions from across the country, CGX camps educate junior golfers and their parents on everything college golf and the recruiting process, improve players’ games, and help juniors discover how to find the right collegiate program fit. CGX offers three distinct camp categories: Exposure, Preview, and Elite. Exposure Camps show juniors where to start the process of finding your fit in college golf, Preview Camps are held prior to Junior Golf Tournaments to level up a player's game in tournaments and raise their ranking and Elite Camps are one-on-one with a single college program’s coach to see if that is your fit and your spot in college golf. The curriculum was created in tandem with the GCAA and its member coaches. CGX was founded by golf industry leader Joshua Jacobs, also the founder and former CEO of TGA Premier Golf, a leading provider of introductory and recreational-based junior golf programs.
