About the Florida Junior Tour
The Florida Junior Tour (FJT) is the premier championship series in the Southeast for junior golfers. Conducted by the Florida State Golf Association, the FJT events are professionally conducted on many of the state's finest venues.
Competitors in FJT events are very accomplished, we encourage you to review the results from prior tournaments to gain an accurate assessment of the strengths of tournament fields.
Thank you for considering the FJT - we look forward to a great season!
The FJT is open to amateur junior golfers, ages 13-18. Florida residency is NOT required.
You can compete on the Tour as long as you have not completed high school AND started attending college. Which means...you can take college classes while you're still in high school, but once you graduate from high school and go to college you become ineligible. If you bomb out of college and want to come back and play it's too late - you should have studied more!
The FJT reserves the right to grant conditional status to players younger than 13 if they have demonstrated exceptional playing capability in other junior tournaments.
- 16-18 Boys and Girls
- 13-15 Boys and Girls
Age is determined by the last day of each tournament.
Please see Tournament Policies for more information.
- Boys 16-18 - 6,900 yards
- Girls 16-18 - 6,000 yards

Tees are not set until the tournament staff arrives on site. Tournament set up can change, including yardages, to offset inclement weather or other course conditions (i.e. wet course conditions).
