“We are very pleased to partner with the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy” said CJGA Executive Director Earl Fritz. “The Greg Norman Academy is a leading training academy for junior golfers and young professionals and our alignment with the academy will only benefit our membership through exposure and opportunity.”
The Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy will take ownership of two events on the CJGA schedule each calendar year. The partnering event will see an increased presence on-site from the Greg Norman Academy while increasing the potential of garnering international fields through academy juniors competing.
“We look forward to how this partnership will benefit both CJGA and GNCGA,” said Jose M. Fernandez, CEO. “Our mission at GNCGA is to “create better people on and off the golf course,” which we believe helps juniors be able to play collegiate golf and beyond. By partnering with CJGA, we will be bringing our programs to junior golfers in Canada. Now, they too will have the opportunity to have a great experience with the end goal being acquiring college scholarships. In the past, 92% of our full time students and post grad students have been successful in achieving this goal.”
