What is the GSGA Junior Tour?
The GSGA Junior Tour is a series of junior competitions throughout the state of Georgia for players of all skill levels. The program is operated by the Georgia State Golf Association.
Do I have to be a member to play in GSGA Junior Tour tournaments?
No. However, players will be limited in the number/type of tournaments they can play as a non-member. Non-member players may play in a maximum of TWO events during the Summer Series, ONE event during the Fall Series and unlimited events during the Spring Series. Non-members will NOT be eligible for the Spring/Fall Finales and Seaon-Ending Championships. Non-members will be eligible for the MAADA Series, Parent/Junior Series and the Skills Challenge Series, but are subject to higher entry fees. Please be sure to check the Tournament Information page to see if non-members are permitted to play.
What is included in a GSGA Junior Tour Membership?
GSGA Junior Tour members will have access to competitions with other players of a similar skill/age at discounted rates, a Youth on Course membership which offers rounds of golf for $5 or less at participating courses nationwide, a USGA Handicap Index and a membership benefits package that includes a player gift, a Player’s Edition to the Rules of Golf and much more.
What division do I choose?
There are 14 different divisions based on a player’s age and skill level. Players must make a good-faith effort to select the proper division based on their playing ability. These divisions are used for the Summer Series only as players are placed in flights for the Fall and Spring Series based solely on age/gender. Please visit our Correct Division Policy and Divisions Page for further information and/or contact our office for assistance in selecting the correct division.
How do I know which tournaments are available for my division?
Some events may not offer competition for all divisions. There is a “Search for Tournaments” button on the top right-hand corner of the tournament schedule page. Once selected, a dropdown menu will appear. Select the appropriate division and click “submit”. This will provide a list of all the tournaments for that specific division.
How do I qualify for a Season-Ending Championship?
There are three Season-Ending Championships. The GSGA Junior Tour Championship is for players in the Advanced and Intermediate 18-Hole divisions. There will also be season-ending championships for players in the Beginner division and Intermediate 9-Hole division. Please visit the Championship Information page for qualifying tournaments.
