Membership is open to male and female junior golfers who meet the following qualifications:

  • Are between the ages of 7 to 18*
  • Have not reached their 19th birthday and have not entered college
  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of the game

*Not all events are open for age 18 juniors. The HSJGA age determination date is July 15, 2022 which means whatever age you are on that date is the age you are considered the entire year.

Annual membership is from January 1 – December 31. However, membership is terminated on the junior’s 19th birthday or on the first day of class when the junior enters college, whichever occurs first. Once membership is terminated, juniors may no longer participate in HSJGA events and will forfeit any exemptions earned but not yet used.


The membership fee includes a membership handbook, one year USGA Junior Membership, college workshops, instructional clinics, rules workshops, Rules of Golf book, bag tag (one, when joining the HSJGA), GHIN handicap (donated by the HSGA and USGA), special HSJGA gift and participation in the activities and programs of the HSJGA. If a junior becomes a member after October 1, the membership fee shall be reduced to $15 and shall exclude USGA Junior membership and HSGA handicap.

Is your family associated with the Military in Hawaii?  If so, the HSJGA will waive your membership fee ($50 value) thanks to a grant awarded by USAA.  Please complete the membership application to become a New Member and indicate your affiliation.


If you are not a tournament ready player, we recommend checking out the First Tee – Hawaii!  They offer programs for youth ages 5 – 17  with professional instruction, discounted access to golf course practice facilities and golf equipment if needed.
