Golf participation is in decline. There is a lost generation of golfers, age 20-50, who found the expense and time demands of the game not worthy of their investment. For golf to remain viable, more young people must be introduced to the game we love, and in many instances, has shaped our lives.


In western Virginia, there are two organizations dedicated to introducing golf and related life lessons to children that deserve your support. The two beneficiary organizations of the Junior Golf Foundation of Virginia share a commitment to junior golf. All have been successfully operating for at least six years and have relied on the generous financial support of the business and golf community in the Roanoke Valley. The goal of the Foundation is to consolidate the fundraising activities and achieve economies in fundraising costs and to avoid multiple asks of donors.
