The Junior Tour offers boys and girls a chance to compete with peers as individuals in separate age/gender divisions. Same as the pros do!
About 12 tournaments are offered throughout the summer (July-August). The tour is open to juniors ages 8-18 who reside (or spend summer) within the boundaries of the PGA NENY Section, which includes the Capital Region and Berkshire County in Massachusetts. College students who meet these criteria are also welcome.
There is an annual fee of $75 to join the tour. Tour members may play in as many or as few events as they like during a season. They compete for prizes in separate age divisions:
The event fee includes greens fee, range fee, lunch and live event scoring viewable using our free Junior Tour mobile app.
Players in the 8-12 age division are allowed a maximum of 10 strokes per hole in the fairway. After 10 strokes, the ball is played from the edge of the green with a maximum of five putting strokes. Starting times and pairings (posted five days before each event), results, cancellations and delays are available online and via our app.
The goal of the tour is to promote sportsmanship, etiquette, respect for the rules of golf and the sport as a whole in a fun, competitive environment.
We make every attempt to accommodate requests for starting times and carpooling. Please notify a PGA NENY staff member prior to the event deadline date.
We also offer open 9-hole tournaments in the spring (May-June) and fall (August-September) for any boy or girl age 8-18. Membership in the tour is not required to play in these more casual events.
Tournaments held May thru September 2016
