“College Golf Experience’s mission is to build value for college coaches while creating unique opportunities for junior golfers,” said Joshua Jacobs, CEO of College Golf Experience. “After recently combining forces with the GCAA, Showcase Camps are the first step to providing coaches a platform to showcase their programs, and partner with CGX to create transformational experiences for junior golfers.”
CGX Showcase Camps are a tremendous opportunity for young men and women, ages 10-18 to learn from and interact with multiple coaches in an immersive, fun, and educational setting.
