The Athens Area Junior Golf Tour’s (AAJGT) mission is to grow junior golf in the Greater Athens and surrounding areas by providing boys and girls aged 7-18 and of all skill levels, the opportunity to discover the game; enhance and refine their skills; and advance to the competitive level of school-based competition and beyond. Our vision and commitment is to conduct professionally-run Junior tournaments that are affordable and convenient; and played on excellent courses that are always close to home. Our tour offers a top-notch experience that consistently exceeds our players’, parents’, and partners’ expectations.
Founded in 2012 and based in the Athens-area of northeast Georgia, the AAJGT conducts one and two day events with Spring, Summer and Fall series tournaments that are played on Saturdays and/or Sundays so that family and friends can be involved.
Juniors play from tees with yardages that are suitable to their age. Younger age divisions play with a modified Stableford scoring system to enhance the pace of play. The older divisions play traditional stroke play to help develop their games for high school and college golf, with 2-day events ranked on Junior Golf Scoreboard.
Finally, our juniors will learn the proper rules and etiquette, practice good sportsmanship and respect for opponents, and acquire the positive values associated with the great game of golf.
