Encouraging Young People to Foster a Love and Respect for the Game of Golf

Junior Golf Program
Central Oregon

Since 1993, the Central Oregon Junior Golf Association (COJGA) in Bend, Oregon has served our local community by promoting golf as a vehicle for growth for our young people. Being a junior golfer encourages young people to foster a love and respect for the game of golf, for their competitors and for themselves. We believe that healthy golfing competitions and sportsmanship will foster growth in a child's maturity, self-confidence and integrity. We are your only comprehensive junior golf association in Bend, Redmond, Madras, Sisters, Prineville and Sunriver, Oregon

Our mission is to provide junior golfers an opportunity to learn, play and compete with an affordable first-class golfing experience through events hosted year-round at some of Central Oregon's best golf courses. We strive to provide these opportunities to the absolutely brand new golfer as well as those juniors who possess the potential skill and aspirations to compete at the high school or collegiate level.



Building character through competition with seasonal golf tournaments.



Registration for the 2024 COJGA season opens on March 1st. 

Our golf motto — Grow With Golf — has become our community's foundational pillar for junior golf development. Our golfing programs start in the exposure series where young people become golfers and these golfers become better people!  

When our young golfers gain enough confidence and skills, we encourage them to keep playing and learning! Our event golfing schedule includes everything from learning golf rules and etiquette on a short golf course to golfing events where novices can learn to compete in a friendly, team-based format. The most advanced players will play tournament golf to gain the experience necessary to compete at the higher levels of regional and high school golf tournaments.
