One of the biggest issues facing the game of golf today is simply the number of people playing the sport. Growing the game is arguably the most important initiative in golf today and the TGA is that and more all over the country.
Started in Los Angeles in 2003, the TGA — which stands for “teach, grow, achieve” — has been making golf affordable and accessible to kids from PK to eighth grade through levels of after school instruction. In 2008, the program became USGA-approved under the rules of amateur status and by 2008, more than 50 TGA franchises had been established. In 2011, the company expanded to include tennis programs as well.
The benefits for the kids is obvious and well-known, but TGA offers benefits to more than just its junior clientele. It’s also proven to be one of the best franchise purchases an aspiring entrepreneur can get involved with.
Founder and CEO Josh Jacobs sat down with John Maginnes and Jeff Rude to discuss the TGA and their impact on the game of golf.
