The Alabama – NW Florida PGA is committed to engaging the next generation of golfers. The Section conducts various junior golf events across Alabama and the Florida Panhandle through three different programs. These programs are centered around developing talent in our Section and allow juniors and parents to be exposed to all facets the game has to offer. When summertime rolls around we use the motto “Let’s Go Play,” meaning we don’t care where, who or how — we’re all about playing the game we love and we know there is no better way to share that love than with a simple invitation.
The Junior Golf Alabama (JGA) Tour is a collaborative tour operated by the Alabama Golf Association and Alabama-NW Florida PGA Section. The tour is designed specifically to remove barriers, such as cost, while also offering premier junior golf tournaments at some of the finest facilities in Alabama and NW Florida. The JGA tour is open to all girls and boys ages 6-18 that reside in Alabama or the Florida Panhandle (west of Apalachicola) and have an active GHIN number through the Alabama Golf Association or the Florida State Golf Association.Learn More >

Drive, Chip and Putt is open to girls and boys ages 7-15 and provides aspiring junior golfers an opportunity to play with their peers in skill-based competitions all across the country. Participants who advance through local, sub-regional, and regional qualifying in each age/gender category earn a place in the National Finals, which is conducted at Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before the Masters Tournament and is broadcast live by Golf Channel.
We all have dreams which are near and dear to us – some of them bigger than others. In 2020, we established a Scholarship Program centered around the Junior Golfers all across our Section. The Junior Tour Scholarship is annually awarded to a deserving high school graduate or current college student who has previously played on our Junior Tour.
We believe these dreams that we hold on to are worth pursuing, no matter what they are – this is what our Scholarship Program was built on. We want to help you fulfill those dreams and live out your purpose.
