“My son has played in many events, but the NJGT/GNCGA College Prep Junior Golf Tour has to be one of the best. The staff with the NJGT has put together in the past some great tournaments at some great courses, but having the staff of the GNCGA and their academy setting as a venue was awesome. I would like to see this as an annual event.”Rob V.

Dan H. from Pennsylvania PGA Head Golf Professional
“Major shout out to Joe DeMaio!!! My wife and I were playing at Barefoot Norman and Fazio several weeks ago and we were finishing our round when Joe and some of his students came off the course as well. With me being a MAJOR Greg Norman fan and I was familiar with GNCGA, I asked if they sold the baseball caps from the academy. He proceeded to take his off his head and give it to me!! I was only asking if they sold them!!! Major props to him as an instructor, professional, and great person!”

"Thank you for the great tournament in December 2015. I really enjoyed the practice facility at the academy and all of the staff. I hope to return next year."
Gonzalo P. from Spain Full-Time Student 2015
"Thank you for all the support you gave me last year, 2015, and for all the things you taught me that are now essentials in my daily life. In terms of golf, I would like you to know that you couldn't have been more right when you said that the most important thing was to play as much golf as possible and to learn from your mistakes on the golf course, because all we do in college is play, play and play again. Also, when you repeated over and over again that the academy was a process and we should wait for everything to come. Furthermore all the little things that I thought were not important, I realize now how much they help... like making my bed everyday or making my divots. What I appreciate the most about last year is the family environment that GNCGA offers because college is just like that. Your team is your family and you have to respect everyone like if they were your brothers. I couldn't be more thankful that you taught me all those essentials for my new life in college. "
Juan C. from Colombia Uncle of a GNAJI 2015 Participant
"I want to thank you for inviting my nephew, Juan K., to such an excellent tournament. Juan K. was very happy and he loved to have the opportunity to participate as a player. Thanks again for everything and hope to see you soon."
Kieran V. from Zimbabwe Participant in the GNAJI 2015
"Thank you very much for all the time and effort GNCGA put into this tournament. I wish I could return next year, but I will be too old."
