In 1995, G2 Founder Ray Travaglione opened the first junior golf boarding academy. In over 20 years, little has changed – the model is still focused on the boys.
G2 is all about the girls.
Our proprietary training system was created around the needs of female athletes to empower them to own their future. The G2 Academy provides a competitive, distraction-free environment where it’s all about the girls. G2’s proprietary training program is designed to help female junior golfers achieve their goals. We’re developing the next generation of female leaders, giving them the training and skills they need to win on and off the course.
The G2 Academy is fortunate to have support from premier industry influencers and leaders. The G2 Academy Friends are passionate about the game, passionate about the G2 mission and impacting the growth and development of the students.
Susan Benavides is excited to have the opportunity to help female junior golfers pursue their dreams of collegiate and professional golf. “The passion and experience The G2 Team has for female junior golfers and the program they’ve created makes me so excited to become a part of their team. Because of my experience attending a junior golf boarding academy, I look forward to providing advice and guidance as the G2 students pursue collegiate and professional golf careers,” Benavides said.
Susana was formerly the top-ranked amateur in South America and was the first Bolivian to ever play in an LPGA Event. She played college golf at Ohio State, where her accomplishments included being named second team All-Big Ten and Academic All-Big Ten.
Through the partnership, Benavides will play an active role in mentoring The G2 Academy students and helping deserving young women receive scholarships to the academy through the Girls Golf Charitable Foundation (501c3).
“I’m thrilled to have Susana joining the Friends of G2 team,” states Ray Travaglione, G2 Founder and CEO. “She has incredible enthusiasm and a great energy that I believe will have a meaningful impact on The G2 Academy students,” he adds.
The G2 Proprietary Training Program encompasses all areas of golf development including swing mechanics, course management, mental training, nutrition, and fitness.
Finding the best school for our students is vital to the college placement process. G2 works with students from start to finish, applying 30 years of experience helping thousands of junior golfers earn college golf scholarships.
We envision the G2 students graduating ready to take on the world as the next generation of female leaders. G2’s Leadership and Empowerment Curriculum is designed to give girls the tools they need to develop this skillset.
