These camps aim to connect junior golfers and their parents with college coaches, providing opportunities for exposure, mutual learning, and education about the college golf landscape and the path to get there.

Founded in 1968 by the San Diego Junior Golf Association, the Junior World Golf Championships were established to connect young golfers from around the globe, offering a premier golf experience and encouraging cultural unity and understanding.

The IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships, now hosting 1,250 participants from 56 countries and 42 states, has become the world’s largest international junior golf event. The finals are held annually at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.

“Just as Junior World unites competitive players from around the world, this partnership directly connects juniors and their parents to college coaches as many of the talented competitors are dreaming of playing college golf,” said CGX CEO Joshua Jacobs.

“Together with Junior World, we will create an environment of excitement and education around the college golf landscape, while providing camp attendees the chance to develop relationships with college coaches, and garner skills and insights that will continue to impact their journey to finding their spot on a college team.”

The CGX Junior World Exposure Camps are scheduled in the San Diego area in the days leading up to and after the Junior World Championships.

The first camp is set for July 6 at the Temecula Creek Inn, and the second camp on July 12-13 at Carlton Oaks Golf Club.

“The IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships annually welcomes over 130 college coaches to Torrey Pines to recruit the best junior golfers in the game.

We are proud to host an event that continues to be a difference-maker in the recruiting process for players and college golf programs. 

Our partnership with CGX will not only enhance the overall experience for the players and their families but give them an incredible opportunity to interact directly with coaches and learn about the recruiting process,” said Megan Mahoney, Executive Director, San Diego Junior Golf Association and Junior World.

Designed for young men and women ages 12-18, CGX camps feature educational seminars led by college coaches on all aspects of college golf and the pathway to get there.

They include open Q&A sessions for parents, college golf practice sessions with skill development and challenges, and 36 holes of on-course coach and player engagement. Parents are invited to participate every step of the way at CGX camps.
