Shires Junior Golf Tour offer a structured programme of nine-hole and 18-hole competitions, usually on Sundays, throughout the Spring, Summer and early Autumn.
The 12 events take place at a selection of quality golf courses across the English counties of Leicestershire & Rutland, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire. There is also a Grand Final at the end of the season.
Young golfers can slot into their relevant categories and play against like-minded players of similar abilities across the counties.
It does not matter if the youngster is a boy or a girl, plays off scratch or is new to the game, there are prizes and trophies for the different age/ability groups at the individual events.
Further awards can also be won through the Order of Merit, which runs throughout the season.
Our vision is:
– To create opportunities for junior golfers to learn, play and enjoy the game of golf.
– To motivate and educate junior golfers that, through golf, they can learn values of honesty, integrity and sportsmanship to last them for a lifetime.
– To dedicate ourselves and our junior golfers to be the best they can be on and off the golf course.
SJGT is a non-profit making organisation, with all revenue being fed back into developing junior golf.
