Golfzon Dedicated to Growth of Junior Golf

Golfzon, the parent company of Golfzon Leadbetter, visited the Leadbetter Golf Academy headquarters in late October for the first time post-pandemic. Their last trip kicked off the opening of the newly renovated Academy and was the first chance Chairman Kim laid eyes on the facility and the Junior program. Leadbetter Junior Golf Academy is now halfway through its third year as an Academy since moving to LGA ChampionsGate full-time.

With great respect and appreciation, Senior Benjamin Cai and Junior Hailey Holbdy presented gifts to Chairman Kim and Mr. Choi, thanking them for their contribution to LJGA and sharing a bit of their story on how LJGA has changed their careers. “This is my second full year at LJGA and I can’t thank Golfzon and all the coaches here at LJGA enough. I have learned so much about myself and my golf game here and was fortunate enough to earn a golf scholarship and continue to pursue my dreams in golf,” said Benjamin Cai, who recently committed to a scholarship at The University of Purdue where he will compete on the Men’s Golf Team.

This year, Leadbetter Junior Golf Academy welcomed 24 students, with a predicted 26 students for the Spring ’22 semester. The program continues to grow as its unique “boutique-like” feel attracts many parents and students to the program. “Creating a quality program that we are proud of is the top priority. To do this, we need to make sure we have the best junior coaches in the world and allow our group sizes to be small enough so that each student receives the necessary amount of attention to not only achieve their goals but to feel completely at home throughout this journey,” says Academy Director Txema Sanchez. Sanchez continues, “I believe we done just that. We have recruited the best coaches and are providing an environment for the juniors that is simply unmatched. With the help from Golfzon, there is no telling where this Academy will be in the next 5-10 years. We are very pleased to receive their unwavering support.”

In addition to the full-time program, Leadbetter continues to offer Junior Camps year-round for juniors of all ages and abilities. Camps are the perfect opportunity to experience Academy life for any prospective full-time student.

“LJGA is producing exceptional talent year after year. We are very proud to be part of these juniors lives through our support”
