On this Junior Tour, we use the motto “Let’s Go Play,” meaning we don’t care where, or who or how — we are all about playing the game we love. We also know that there is no better way to share that love than with a simple invitation. Everyone who plays the game of golf was invited into the sport in some form or fashion. The AL – NW FL PGA Junior Tour crosses competition with development opportunities for junior golfers of all backgrounds and abilities. View Our Virtual Welcome Packet 〉
The Junior Tour ultimately aspires to be the most valuable competitive golf experience for juniors in the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. The Tour is designed exclusively to break down barriers to participation in the game of golf through tournament play, and by developing talent to ensure participants are ready to ascend to higher ranks in the sport.
The Alabama – NW Florida PGA Junior Tour is open to all boys and girls between the ages of 10 through 18 that reside in the state of Alabama or the Florida Panhandle (west of Apalachicola).
The Tour conducts approximately 20 to 25 tournaments every summer across the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Each junior competing in the Alabama – NW Florida PGA Junior Tour will be required to sign up for a yearly membership at a cost of $50. When a junior registers for the Tour they will receive a welcome packet along with a membership gift. Each event will cost $35 to play in and the yearly membership allows each junior to compete in as many events as they so choose.
In addition to a Junior Tour Membership, players will also receive access to a Youth on Course Membership – giving participants access to over ten courses across the Section for $5 or less.
To all the golf moms and dads out there, we get it. There can be some things that are overwhelming and complicated when it comes to youth sports. We want to set our players and parents up for success so they can enjoy the summer with us. Beginning in 2021, all Junior Tour Members will have access to Junior Golf Hub – a leading community for junior golfers, their parents and college coaches to connect. JGH was developed to help parents and players track their growth and development as they move through their golf journey.
Once you register for a 2021 Junior Tour Membership, you will receive a confirmation email with more instructions on how to register for your Junior Golf Hub Basic Membership. Additionally, you will have access to a 30-day trial of JGH’s Premium Membership. Learn More 〉
