About the Tour

The Lakeshore JGA was founded in 2012 by father and son Barry & Cody Shanley.  Barry has almost three decades of golf tournament organization and junior golf coaching experience.  Barry works directly with our amazing courses to bring affordable golf to the youth of West Michigan.  Cody has a design and technology background and is working to bring our tour into the digital era. Together, we hope to make this tour the best it can be.  We hope you meet new friends, have a great time on these beautiful courses, and most of all enjoy the wonderful game of golf! This Tour is available to Players ages 10-18.
