Owensboro Junior Golf Foundation (OJGF) – Operation 36

The OJGF is a First Tee Life Skill Provider. Its mission is to impact the lives of young people in Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana by providing a learning facility and educational programs that promote character-development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.

At Ben Hawes Golf Course, the OJGF believes that every golf program should be centered on playing golf and making it fun to track progress over time. This is why our facility is excited to be a licensed Operation 36 (Op36) facility. We leverage the Op36 Development Modle and technology to make it fun for our golfers to improve his/her skills.
