St. George City Junior Golf Program (JAG) Information

Junior Golfer in St GeorgeThe St. George City junior golf program (JAG) registration began last week.  This a great summer program for your aspiring young golfers.  All the St. George natives I know either learned to golf in this excellent summer activity, or honed their stroke.

There is a cost of $40, but it’s well worth it.  The fee includes golf discounts at city courses, instruction, tournaments, t-shirt, and towel.

You can register your 7-17 year old kids at http://www.sgcity.org/golf/jag/

    My boys were registered for JAG 5/29/2017 this year. They have all taken their training in previous years and I was wondering when their laminated JAG cards will be available? Is there any wat to go golfing and still get their discount WITHOUT having the physical card? Any information would be very very appreciated.
