FREE Golf at IJGA’s New Par-3 Challenge Course During Grand Opening on Labor Day

The community is invited to play golf for FREE during International Junior Golf Academy’s (IJGA) grand opening event on Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at IJGA’s Old Carolina campus in Bluffton. Families are welcome to play the new par-3 Challenge Course, Himalayas, 18-hole putting green, use the Performance Training Center’s indoor hitting bays, short game area and enjoy a cook-out during the open house.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own clubs to play the facilities for free. Prizes will be awarded for closest-to-the-pin and putting contests.

Reminiscent of Scotland’s St. Andrews Links’ Old Course, the new par-3 Challenge Course, rolling Himalayas and large putting green will be used for training by IJGA student-athletes and the new After School Junior Golf Program’s local juniors who are interested in golf instruction. 

The After School Junior Golf Program is slated to kick-off at IJGA’s Old Carolina campus on Monday, September 10, offering juniors golf instruction on Mondays and Thursdays, 4:15 – 6:15 p.m. Monthly and annual memberships will be offered to students ages 8 – 18, which include twice-weekly golf instruction, weekend use of the outdoor course, indoor facilities and lunch at Fuel dining hall. 

The on-site course is part of the rebirth of IJGA and campus transformation project taking place at Old Carolina. IJGA’s on-site amenities include the recent $2 million renovation of the Performance Training Center which houses the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate & Studio, indoor hitting bays, indoor chipping and putting area, recreation center, Performance Fitness Center and Fuel dining hall. 

IJGA’s campus is located at 89 Old Carolina Drive in Bluffton.
