The South Florida PGA Junior Championship Tour is a series of two-day events at some of South Florida’s premiere facilities. Membership is Invitation Only. Juniors are invited based on the previous year’s Junior Tour scoring average and point standings (refer to exempt and conditional lists below), and current year’s performance prior to session checkpoints. All Championship Tour events are nationally ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard. All Championship Tour events are 36 hole events, with a Boys (13-18) and Girls (13-18) division. Boys compete from the Championship tees (6600-7000+ yards), and girls compete from the middle tees (5800-6000+).
