ATHENS AREA JUNIOR GOLF TOUR
How to Play the AAJGT
The Tour is comprised of more than 22 annual events whereby players who are members of the Tour enter a tournament to compete on an individual basis. Players are segmented by gender and age, but not by skill level. For the older age divisions, each tournament is played as a stroke-play format with winners determined by lowest gross score for the round(s); the younger age divisions play either a Stableford scoring format or full stroke play with stroke limits. Players 11 & under typically play just 9 holes (or 18 holes over 2-day tournaments), while players 12 & older play 18 holes (or 36 holes over 2-day tournaments).
Players that enter and finish Tour events accumulate AAJGT points based on how he/she places in each event. These points accumulate to determine eligibility to compete in the season ending Tour Championship at The Landing at Reynolds Lake Oconee.
AAJGT by The Numbers
Talk of The Tour
“It has been a great experience playing on the Athens Area Junior Golf Tour. They provided me with so many opportunities to work on my golf game, and to improve and learn from every tournament. This has been an enormous help with my golf game, and has helped me reach my goal of playing golf in college. I enjoy getting to play on so many different golf courses in my area as well, but I don’t have to drive very far to get to them. Both the staff and the players were such a joy to have the opportunity to get to know, and I have grown friendships that I will always have.”
"What's great about the AAJGT is that you practice and play at your own pace. You are in charge of making your own schedule."
"I know if it were not for the AAJGT, Will wouldn't be where he is today. And for that, we are ever grateful.”
"Athens Area Junior Golf Tour has provided me the opportunity to play in multiple competitive rounds throughout my high school career. This has allowed me to gain tournament experience that has helped me continue my game to the college level. I don’t think I would have been able to go play at North Georgia without the AAJGT."
