History of the Junior Tour

Two Tours Become One

The NCGA Junior Tour was founded in 2008 and grew rapidly from eight tournaments to sixteen by 2010, while the NCPGA’s Junior Tour conducted eight tournaments during its inaugural year in 2010.

Beginning in 2011, the Junior Tour of Northern California was established by combining the resources of the NCGA and the NCPGA’s Junior Tours, in order to create a single tour where junior golfers could compete against the best players for an affordable price. This partnership proved extremely successful, and the number of tournaments increased to seventeen.

In order to meet Northern California’s demand for quality junior golf tournaments, the Junior Tour of Northern California will hold twenty six tournaments in 2017 between March and December. The quality of these tournaments has been recognized the American Junior Golf Association by awarding performance based entry status to the winners of all Boys and Girls Championship flights.

Junior Tour of Northern California Player of the Year

In 2008 when the NCGA created its junior tour it created a “Player of the Year” award to honor the best player in the boys’ and girls’ divisions. After the NCGA joined its junior tour with the NCPGA at the end of 2010—creating the Junior Tour of Northern California (JTNC)—the award has continued to recognize the best boy and girl junior player in the region.
