About the Youth Development Program (YDP)

The IJGA allows juniors to jump-start their competitive golf careers beginning at the age of eight with the Youth Development Program (YDP). Members of this program not only experience the thrills of competition, but also the opportunity to master the rules and etiquette of golf.

In addition to encouraging their love for the game, the IJGA provides juniors the added benefits of making new friends and developing their character through the countless life lessons that golf teaches, such as sportsmanship and integrity.
