Tournament Play

“Top-Level Tournaments and Exposure to NCAA Coaches”

The students at GMJA enjoy tremendous advantages in their preparation for college competition as well as college entrance. They compete on the best junior tours in Canada, they receive guidance and exposure that leads to college scholarships, and their daily life is much like that of a college golfer. Our students put their PGA Tour level coaching to the test against some of the best players in Canada on the RCGA, BCGA, CN Future Links, AJGA, and etc.

Our coaches attend tournaments with the players, providing support, guidance, observations, advice on preparation, and post-round analysis. The tournaments hosted by RCGA, BCGA, CN Future Links and AJGA are heavily scouted by NCAA golf coaches, providing our students seeking college scholarships with exposure. They have opportunities to network with college coaches and to learn from the experiences of other junior competitors.  They also put their GMJA instruction to the test under tournament pressure, and gain valuable experience in tournament preparation, strategy and managing their games and emotions.
