Pledge To Parents

Myrtle Beach Junior Golf Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide Junior golfers of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to play competitive golf and receive quality instruction on a year round basis in the Myrtle Beach area. At River Oaks Golf Plantation in Myrtle Beach the MBJGF coaches are dedicated to helping kids learn the game of golf. The after school clinics and summer camps are aimed at teaching kids golf fundamentals while having fun. Playing the game of golf develops character in young people. Players learn to get along with others, to make good decisions, and to do the right thing. They learn not to give up, to be responsible for their own actions, and to be good sports, win or lose. MBJGF strives to help junior golfers improve to their fullest capacity, reach their ultimate goals and live their dreams.
