Our students headed to Bluffton, SC yesterday for the Hilton Head Junior Shootout that takes place March 19-20 at Island West. We wish them the best of luck! A schedule of events can be found on the HJGT website at here. Our full-time students put a lot of time and effort into what they do here at the academy. Each one of them has a passion for golf and the staff here at GNCGA can see the determination in them every day.
