Jack and Barbara Nicklaus will again host the top fundraisers from the AJGA's Leadership Links program, Playing fore their Future. The top five fundraisers and top two organizers of fundraising tournaments will be invited to join Jack and Barbara Nicklaus at The Bears Club in Jupiter, Florida, on November 22, 2015.

The day will consist of an awards brunch with Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, as well as the chance to play Nicklaus' exclusive, personal golf course.

The Leadership Links program allows the AJGA to further its mission to help develop young men and women by teaching charitable giving skills and service-oriented practices at an early age. The American Junior Golf Association and Leadership Links are pleased to continue a partnership begun in 2012 with the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation to support the research of childhood diseases through the Playing fore their Future program.

Juniors who support this program raise money throughout the golf season, with half of the proceeds allocated to the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation and half dedicated to the AJGA's Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant program.

Playing fore their Future is an easy way for juniors to accumulate volunteer hours and make a difference in the lives of other young men and women. Through the Leadership Links program, juniors are provided a personalized website and marketing materials to aid their fundraising campaign.
