College Golf Camps of America (CGC) and the U.S. Kids Golf Tournament Players Association have partnered to provide elite Junior Golfers at the U.S. Kids Golf Teen World Championship with a better awareness of college golf through College Golf Camps of America.

Dallas, Texas, November 20, 2015 – College Golf Camps of America and the U.S. Kids Golf Tournament Players Association, is pleased to announce a new collaboration in junior golf development.

In 2016, College Golf Camps of America will host a forum with some of that nation’s top collegiate coaches at the U.S. Kids Golf Teen World Championship. This event will bring together many of the nation’s top junior players and provide many of them a first step in learning about the recruitment process, campus culture and demands of student-athlete life.

“This is the natural fit,” explains Chris Vonderkall, Vice President of U.S. Kids Golf Tournaments. “Virtually every golfer that qualifies for the Teen World Championship has both a hope and an expectation of playing competitive golf at higher levels. The opportunity to provide a forum where they can learn about everything that goes into being a student-athlete, about excelling at an elite level on the course – those are things that you can’t simply read about. The coaches who are involved with College Golf Camps are the recognized leaders of collegiate golf, it’s a very good thing that our competitors can hear from them.”

Nick Rook, President of College Golf Camps of America echoed the sentiment. “We are thrilled to be associated with such a great organization like the U.S. Kids Golf TPA. Their mission of keeping the game fun and family-focused has obviously attracted a worldwide audience. Even more, the incredible talent that is being developed through their programs and championships can’t be overlooked. Golfers that have competed at their World Championships are now winning on Tour. This championship brings in the best of the best. The kids competing at Pinehurst will be the ones representing colleges in a few short years. It’s going to do nothing but help them to get this type of exposure to the process now.”
