Keep up-to-date with all the latest news and information from the Northern Junior Golf Tour
The Rookies Tour in association with PING is our established 9 Hole Tour that is taking place across 14 qualifying venues including a Grand Final across Northern England. This Tour is open to boys and girls aged 6-14 years old on the 1st January 2024.
Junior Golfers have the opportunity to play in a series of professionally ran events, led by a team of passionate individuals in a fun and friendly environment. Each event uses Live Scoring technology via the Golf Genius app to track the scores, performance and gives a hole-by-hole account within each Division.
We see this as a real family affair so encourage parents, family and friends to enjoy the day & soak up the scenery at some of the most picturesque golf courses in Northern England. Our focus within the Rookies Tour is primarily on the beginner golfer who is developing their game and would like to participate in a fun & structured tournament.
Entry is open to Junior Golfers with and without an official handicap as each Junior Golfer is split into one of the following 7 Divisions:
Division A: Beginner Boys (Ages 6-7 years) Blue Tees
Division B: Beginner Boys (Ages 8-9 years) Blue Tees
Division C: Beginner Boys (Ages 10-12 years) Blue Tees
Division D: Beginner Girls (Ages 6-9 years) Blue Tees
Division E: Beginner Girls (Ages 10-12 years) Blue Tees
Division F: Intermediate Boys (Handicaps 28.5-54) Red Tees
Division G: Intermediate Girls (Handicaps 36.5-54) Red Tees
*NB – Divisions are subject to change based on entry numbers. The ‘Beginner’ Divisions are for players who DO NOT have a WHS handicap.
Each Golfer plays within their relevant division in a Gross and Net competition through the season. Players in the Blue Tee categories will be playing in a Gross event only. Players accrue Order of Merit points based on their finishing position after each event with the ‘Best 6 scores from 14‘ counting towards the Grand Final. For example, if a player enters 10 events in then the best 6 scores will be used in that divisional Order of Merit. You are permitted to play in as many events as you wish but the best 6 scores from 14 will only count within the Order of Merit.
The top 6 Golfers will qualify from each Beginner Division & the top 4 Golfers in the Intermediate Division will qualify to play in our Grand Final on Friday 30th August at Thonock Park (Lincolnshire).
Each event is £17.99 for Non Members. 10% discount for NJGT 2024 Members.
