Pro Duffers West Golf Club Supports the Southern Area Junior Golf (SAJG) Program-(2000 thru 2019)
We have an ambitious full-service junior golf program for boys and girls between the ages of 7 thru 17 years old that otherwise might not have the opportunity to learn the skills necessary play golf. The SAJG Junior Golf Program is administered in four different sites: Maggie Hathaway Golf Course in Los Angeles, Westchester Golf Course in Westchester, Chester Washington Golf Course in Los Angeles and the Navy Base Ventura County (NBVC), Seabee Golf Course in Pt Hueneme, Ca.
The Junior Golf Program in Ventura County was originally established at the Saticoy Regional Golf Course Site in March 2000 by Don Cobb, Site Manager and Sterling Ivery, Co-Founder. During The First Tee Program years 2003-2014, the junior golfers were required to espouse the nine core values of the program, which are: Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect Confidence, Responsibility, Perseverance, Courtesy and Judgment. The first 16 years the local junior golf site was at the Saticoy Regional Golf Course in Ventura, Ca. Site manager, Don Cobb states, “The local program offered Life Skills, golf mechanics, rules and etiquette training along with Junior Golf equipment being provided with golf course and practice range access”. The current SAJG Program for the past 3 years is operated at the NBVC Seabee Golf Course and has cumulatively trained over 400 Juniors over the past 20 years. Years 2000 through 2002 the SAJG Junior Golf Program executed its training program using USGA based parameters and resumed this format in 2015.
