Students Work With The Junior Golf Foundation of America

Keiser University Bachelor of Science in Sport Management students recently volunteered to work one of longest running junior events played in South Florida. This is the 33rd year of the Tri-County Junior Golf Matches, featuring 90 junior golfers from Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade counties. The Junior Golf Foundation of America (JFGA) , a non-profit junior golf foundation co-founded by Keiser University Professor and LPGA Hall of Famer, Donna H. White, organized and conducted the event, held at Okeeheelee Golf Course. Keiser students acted as Rules Officials, Driving Range attendants, Walking Scorers, and Shuttle drivers, and assisted in the staging and preparation of the event. While the Tri-County matches were happening on the golf course, a JGFA junior camp was underway on the driving range. Several Keiser students gained practical experience assisting PGA/LPGA staff in camp registration, station rotation, and instruction. “While many of our associates and student volunteers have played in tournaments or have attended a sport camp, opportunities to experience the back- end (organizing and planning)  required to run these types of programs and activities is invaluable” stated Professor White.
