The Champions Junior Golf Tour (CJGT) was founded in 2010 to provide affordable, local opportunities for boys and girls to compete in tour-style golf tournaments. By placing the focus on preparing junior golfers for the next level of competition, our members have fun learning a game they can enjoy for a lifetime. Within the first two years, the tour became one of the most well respected junior tour programs in the southeast. With this growth, Champions Junior Golf enthusiastically partnered with the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour in 2013 in order to provide even more opportunities and events for area junior golfers. Through this partnership, the Champions Junior Golf Tour will cater to the player between the ages of 5 and 15 preparing them for the next step–The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT.) The HJGT (www.hjgt.org) provides multi-day, nationally ranked 36 and 54 hole events at longer yardages for players ages 11-18. Please note that our schedule also includes links to some of the HJGT events you may be interested in trying. For those 11-15 year olds not quite ready for that level of competition, CJGT will prepare you.
Join the Tour!
Since everything is more fun with competition, the CJGT is a great avenue for young players to not only develop their golf skills, but learn life lessons and build character through experiences on the course. Membership in the Champions Junior Golf Tour is open to both boys and girls of all skill levels between the ages of 5 and 15. We believe family involvement can instill a love for the game as well as confidence in a junior golfer. It’s this family involvement that will ultimately help grow the game of golf. Therefore, we encourage our players in every division to have a caddie if they desire.
Currently based in Knoxville, Tennessee, the CJGT conducts single-day 9-hole tournaments in Greater Knoxville/East Tennessee with hopes of adding more cities throughout the year. These tournaments allow junior golfers a unique opportunity to play in a competitive environment from age appropriate yardages while advancing their skills and receiving recognition for their talents and efforts in well-run events. With one low annual membership fee, players can choose from numerous events held from March through November. Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in each event leading up to the naming of a Tour Champion in each age division each year. Tour Champions in the Boys and Girls 12-15 Age Divisions, and the Tour Champion in the Boys 9-11 Division will earn an exemption to play in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour National Championship held in Orlando in December. More information about Tour Champions is available in the Event Guidelines/Tour Champions Honors page. And read more about the HJGT National Championship at www.hjgt.org.
