NJGT Rookies Tour 2022

The Rookies Tour in association with PING is our established 9 Hole Tour that is taking place within Cheshire, County Durham, Cumbria, Lancashire, Northumberland Yorkshire. This Tour is open to boys and girls aged 6-14 years old on the 1st January 2022 and is played across 5 qualifying events within each County.

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.

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 7 Divisions:

Division 1: Advanced Boys (WHS Handicap 19 & below) White Tees

Division 2: Advanced Boys (WHS Handicap 19.1-28.4) Yellow Tees

Division 3: Intermediate Boys (WHS Handicap 28.5-40) Red Tees

Division 4: Advanced Girls (WHS Handicap 36.4 & below) Red Tees

Division 5: Beginner Boys (No Handicap – Age 12-15) Red Tees

Division 6: Beginner Boys (No Handicap – Under 11) Blue Tees

Division 7: Beginner Girls (No Handicap) Blue Tees

*Divisions are subject to change based on entry numbers

Order of Merit

Each Golfer plays within their relevant division in a Gross and Net competition through the season. Players accrue Order of Merit points based on their finishing position after each event with the ‘Best 4 scores from 5‘ counting towards the Grand Final. For example, if a player enters 5 events in Lancashire then the best 4 scores will be used in that County Order of Merit. You are permitted to play in as many events as you wish but the best 4 scores from 5 will only count within one designated County. 

The Best Net & Best Gross player from each Division will progress to the Grand Final at Ramside Hall Hotel & Golf Club on Wednesday 31st August 2022. 

Grand Final 2022

14 golfers will qualify from each County to play in our Grand Final on Wednesday 31st August 2022 at Ramside Hall Hotel & Golf Club (County Durham). Qualifiers will compete within their division as an individual event with all scores counting towards an overall County score to determine the ‘County Champion of the Year’


Each event is £13.50 for NJGT Members & £15 for Non-Members.

Places are subject to availability.
