National camp program projects 3X growth in 2023
LOS ANGELES, CA – College Golf Experience (CGX), a college golf education program with exclusive endorsement from the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), caps off a year of significant growth with the announcement of several new camp events across the country this fall and winter.
CGXeducates junior golfers and their parents on all things college golf through transformational experiences that bring them together with college coaches. CGX fills a vital educational void for parents, and boys and girls ages 13-18 who aspire to play any level of college golf and want to learn about the path to get there.
At CGX camps, juniors and their parents experience one-on-one engagement with college coaches, education seminars on college golf and the recruiting process along with open Q & A sessions, instruction with skill assessments and challenges, plus on-course interaction with coaches during simulated college golf practice and tournament rounds. Juniors experience real-time evaluation and leave with personalized feedback from coaches, along with invaluable insights that help them on their path to finding the right collegiate program fit. Coaches bestow their knowledge and experience and build relationships with the players.
“The DIII Elite Camp changed our son’s life. Giving kids a chance to realize their dream to play college golf is monumental, and we are grateful beyond words for the opportunity and lessons in self-discovery Drew got in two days. Following the camp, he found his fit and took charge of his future,” said Traci F., mother of a camp participant.
When 2022 concludes, CGX will have worked with 104 coaches and anticipates working with 325 coaches in Division I, II, III and NAIA across 75-100 camps in 25-30 states during 2023.
“CGX camps connect junior golfers and their parents with college coaches so they can experience college golf and learn how to find a program that fits them. There’s no greater education than junior golfers and their parents meeting and learning directly from college coaches while developing relationships with them,” said Joshua Jacobs, CEO of College Golf Experience.
For coaches, players, and parents the takeaways can be profound:
“I always love getting a chance to see the future of college golf. It’s even better when we get the opportunity to educate them. CGX provides a great platform for juniors to learn about the next step in their golf journey,” said J.C. Deacon, Head Men’s Coach, University of Florida.
Through its immersive environment and comprehensive curriculum, CGX events transform dreams of playing collegiate golf into a working plan to achieve those goals above and beyond tournaments.
“Attending a CGX camp is the most effective way to get noticed by a college coach. It provides student-athletes quality face time with coaches to show us your personality and learn about ours. At this stage of the game everyone has a good golf swing, and coaches base their decisions off more than just the scores,” said Katie Rudolph, Head Men’s and Women’s Coach, NYU.
