Junior Golf Programs
The MyGolf Program is a National Junior Golf Program designed to increase participation levels and improve the skills of those already playing golf at a junior level.

Pathway for Junior Golfers
Status of GMJGF
The Graham Marsh Junior Golf Foundation has been a constant in the changing world of junior golf for over 30 years. The amalgamation of the WAGA and WGWA into Golf WA recently has led to the Foundation, along with many other programs, being closely looked at and the direction for the future evaluated.
