Just Think,,, grass roots mass development of children's mini golf as a school sport in all South African Schools !
The South African Junior Golf Association (SAJGA) has been founded in 2001. It is the official Junior Golf Association of South Africa and operates independently. The only affiliation is through its founding director who is a full member of the Professional Golf Association of SA as well as a full member of the South African PGA Sunshine Tour.
The main business of the SAJGA is grass roots mass development of children's mini golf and to establish golf as an official school sport throughout all South African Schools. The SAJGA constitution also refers to coordinate, promote, advance, elevate and expand junior golf, in the age groups four to eighteen years, including all races, genders, sexes, religions, consciences, beliefs, cultures, languages, and ethnic or social origins.
INITIATE MINI GOLF AS OFFICIAL SPORT CODE THROUGHOUT SOUTH AFRICAN SHOOLS
Golf amongst children in our country is only played by the privileged and Golf Clubs in general does not support children’s golf. Golf clubs across South Africa makes no provision, or has very strict limitations, regarding children playing golf. The Royal Burgundy Mashie Golf Course, Burgundy Estate , Plattekloof, Cape Town is known to be one of the most child friendly golf clubs in South Africa.
The SAJGA children’s golf activity’s and development programs is of the highest standard in the world under leadership of the JUST THINK,,, Johan Engelbrecht Golf School International (JEGSI) who have already developed more than 12 golf professionals, either as members of the Professionals Golfers Association of SA and or members of the Sunshine Tour of SA.
For more than 100 years children’s golf have not gained parity with other South African Golfing Bodies or Golf Clubs. We believe that a sporting code of this nature, as we envisage, must be controlled and administered by a professional body specifically established for that purpose.
Not just coaching children but also empowering school teachers becoming “School Golf Coaches”, educate children in life skill values and prepare them for golf as well as the labor market via our various golf empowerment courses for children. (see remainder of document).
300-400 SAJGA Franchises available in all 52 Districts throughout South Africa.
The South African Junior Golf Association (SAJGA) believes that the era to acknowledge children’s golf has arrived. Therefore, there is a great challenge to introduce golf to all children at schools level as well as at club level throughout South Africa. We believe that our initiative is sustainable and could expand globally. Thereby creating a pool of young golf athletes, boys and girls, to compete at schools level, regional, provincial, national and finally representing its country internationally.
To your earliest convenience we are available to visit your office presenting our Mini Golf Clubs vision in person.
Thank you for the trust and confidence in the South African Junior Golf Association to present its plan as laid out in the remainder of attached documents.
Ambassador Johan Engelbrecht
