Wilmington Junior Golf Academy

We use golf as a vehicle to teach young people the true values of life and life skills. Learning golf makes young people more grounded, more productive, and learn they can be anything that they wish become. There is absolutely NO COST to ANY child for participating.

Welcome to WJGA!

About Us

Our goal is to be a circular organization, meaning that once someone completes our program, they come back to mentor those who are just beginning.


Our golf program is available for anyone aged 8 or older. You don’t need any prior experience with golf, and we will provide all the necessary equipment.


Our generous sponsors enable us to reach thousands of young people each year and have changed countless lives.

“On behalf of the City of Wilmington, I want to thank Jake Hunt and the Wilmington Junior Golf Academy for all they do in helping to strengthen our young citizens in the game of golf, but more importantly, in the game of life.” – Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo
