Committed to Making a Difference
By organizing regional tournaments for competitive play, Central Oregon Junior Golf Association (COJGA) has been making a difference in kid’s lives since 1993. By encouraging personal achievement and good sportsmanship, COJGA provides opportunities to develop confidence and focus. We believe this helps to develop the values and skills young people need to become exceptional community leaders.

Qualifying for COJGA Varsity competition
Any player who competed in the regular COJGA competition in the previous season is exempt from further qualification requirements.
Any high school varsity or junior varsity player may have their coach issue a letter to COJGA confirming that they were a member of the team. The letter should include the players average score for the season.
Other newcomers to the program are encouraged to attend the pre-season qualifier to be put into the correct playing division.
Level 1 - Eleven events ranging from exposure clinics to short game challenges and the famous Drive, Chip and Putt qualifier
Level 2 - Seven events ranging from scrambles to par 3 contests to team stroke play events
Level 3 - Seven events ranging from individual stroke play tournaments to team match play events
Note: You may register for events that are less advanced than your registered level (i.e. if you are a junior varsity player, you may sign up for Level 1 events and if you are a varsity player, you may sign up for any event).
A parent (or representative) is expected to volunteer at least once every two tournaments in which a junior participates.
