The JGAA announced the 2015 Sportsmanship Awards and Player of the Year across five age divisions at the annual awards banquet held Oct. 18 at Arizona State University Karsten Golf Course.

“This is always one of the most rewarding evenings of the year,” stated Scott McNevin, executive director of the JGAA. “And although a handful of players actually earn the award, many others put in the time and effort to win.  All of this year’s award winners are not only talented players on the golf course, but truly display the characteristics off the course as well.”
