NJGT Rookies Tour 2024

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. 

How it works?

Entry is open to Junior Golfers with and without an official handicap as each Junior Golfer is split into one of the following Divisions:

Division A: Boys (Ages 6-7 years) Blue Tees 

Division B: Boys (Ages 8-9 years) Blue Tees 

Division C: Girls 6-9 years (Blue Tees)

Division D: Girls 10-12 years (Blue Tees)

Division E: Under 12 Boys (Red Tees)

Division F: Under 14 Boys (Red Tees)

Division G: Under 12 Girls (Red Tees)

Division H: Under 14 Girls (Red Tees)

*NB – Divisions are subject to change based on entry numbers.

Order of Merit

Each Golfer plays within their relevant division in a Gross competition through the season. 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. 

Grand Final 2024

The top 8 Golfers will qualify from each Division 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.
