This is our first season with Blue Ridge Junior Golf Tour and we could not be more pleased with the number of tournaments, the excellent communication to players and parents, and the great instruction they offered to the new players. Our son also played in another local tour and BRJGT, hands down, is the best tour in the area. If you have a first time player, we would encourage you to participate in the 'Golf by the Rules' session as both the player and parents learn a lot about how tournaments are run and what is expected. We look forward to many more years with BRJGT!

"The best junior golf tour, hands down! The volunteers are so very nice & helpful and the officials are also fair and knowledgeable. This tour even offers fun, extremely informative instructional courses. I can tell they really care about the young golfers and promoting camaraderie & long-lasting friendships. The directors even provided a (very fancy!) buffet lunch on tournament days! Along with the fact the prices per match are the most affordable, this junior golf tour can't be beat! Ezekiel Z. Sawyers"
BRJGT truly lives up to its mission of “building character and sportsmanship through golf.” We are proud that our son is part of this tour. As he has developed his abilities and interest, we started participating in a couple other tours and for us, there is no comparison to BRJGT. From our very first events with the “Golf by the Rules” and the “Golf Academy”, BRJGT demonstrated their goal is to teach kids how to properly play golf AND how it relates to valuable life skills. At the start of every round, there is a brief lesson/discussion about a particular aspect of golf and relating it to life (play it as it lies, integrity, repairing ball marks, sportsmanship, etc.). There are multiple volunteer rules officials on the course to help when a difficult ruling may be encountered – then they don’t just give the ruling, they teach the players about the rule. Plus, we get to play at the region’s best golf courses at a VERY affordable price and even get discounts on practice rounds. Golf is not an easy sport to learn and competitive golf can feel intimidating – BRJGT has provided a great way for our son to learn how to play golf, make friends, learn life skills, and develop into a solid golfer.
