About WJGA

Since 2008

Wilmington Junior Golf Academy is an Internal Revenue Service Tax Exempt Nonprofit Organization, incorporated in the state of North Carolina in 2008, for the purposes of assisting junior golfers to maximize their educational opportunities and enhance their golfing skills.

Our year-round program teaches vital life skills and academic principles to young golfers. We believe that our comprehensive approach provides a well-rounded experience that helps our students excel on and off the course.

Golf is more than just a game–it’s a lesson in life. Golf teaches young people essential skills that they can carry with them throughout their lives, including values such as discipline and perseverance. With golf, the sky truly is the limit.

Our aim is to be a ‘circular’ organization, meaning that once a participant completes our program, they return as a mentor for future generations.

We are committed to helping the young people in our community reach their full potential. Together, we can help shape a better tomorrow.


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


For aged 8 or older. You don’t need any prior experience with golf, and we will provide all the necessary equipment.
