The Colorado Golf Association created the Hale Irwin Player Program in 2012 to advance the next generation of elite young golfers.
The program is designed to identify junior golfers in Colorado with determination, drive and passion for the game of golf and enhance their skills by granting them FREE access to CommonGround Golf Course and the practice facilities.
Additionally, participants volunteer with the CGA’s Community and Wellness programs, as well acting as score keepers for the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado (JGAC) 10 & under tournaments.
- 41 golfers have been selected from grades 5-12
- 16 high school graduates
- 18 division I scholarship recipients or commitments
(University of Colorado, Colorado State University, Wake Forest, Stanford, Oklahoma State University, University of Oklahoma, University of Kansas, Pepperdine.)
- 5A & 4A State boys and girls individual champions
- Multiple CGA and JGAC champions
Junior players (ages 11-18) are carefully selected by the Hale Irwin Player Committee annually. The Committee evaluates based on golf skill and character, as exhibited through community service, academic performance and general demeanor.
