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 9-18. Florida residency is NOT required.
You can compete on the Tour as long as you have not completed high school AND started attending college full time (12 credit hours). Which means...you can take college classes while you're still in high school, but once you graduate from high school and enroll in college full time 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!
In the 13-15 age division, 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 or their performance in the 9-12 age division of the Florida Junior Tour.
Players must be at least 9 years old to compete in Florida Junior Tour events. There are no exceptions!
