TTJGT Tour Overview - Welcome to 2019 Season

The Truckee Tahoe Junior Golf Tour (TTJGT) is an all volunteer organization. Participating golf courses have donated 100% of the tee times.  The goal of the TTJGT is to support the game and junior golfers by providing a fun, competitive and learning environment for the burgeoning junior golfer to experience the competitive side of the sport or to test the skills of an already competitive and experienced junior golfer.

Golf, and especially tournament golf, is a great game for teaching integrity, honesty, behavior, etiquette, math, communiction, respect for the environment and many other values that are beneficial in life. These basic qualities, and awareness of them, will always be a primary focus for our players along with preparing our juniors for life and more competitive golf if they choose so.

The TTJGT is designed for the junior golfer in providing;

  •  A fun golf experience
  •  An incentive to get out to play and practice
  •  An introduction to a competitive golf experience
  •  Experience & knowledge to play tournament golf
  •  Exposure to tournament golf and to prep for higher competition, if desired
  •  Provide a conduit for junior golfers to meet and play golf together

TTJGT strives for players to be accompanied by knowledgeable and accomplished players (TTJGT Tournament Officials) who will help in mentoring players on pace of play, scorekeeping, course etiquette, course care and the basic rules. Our goal is for the tournament officials NOT to be parents, but that is not always possible.

Participants do NOT have to be high level players. They do need to have very basic golf knowledge and be able to walk 9 holes. Players must be ready to play in a timely manner and be ready to account for each shot played, up to 10 as that is the max per hole, then we pick up and move to next hole. The Tournament Officials will NOT be teaching the physical fundamentals of golf. The TTJGT is the next step for junior golfers who already have the very basic skills. TTJGT hopes the tour will attract beginning juniors and provide aspiring young golfers a motivation to play and practice so they too can compete in TTJGT tournaments.



USGA Rules of Golf Govern All Play with the following exceptions;

  • Pace of Play Rules implemented by Tournament Committee
  • Local Rules from host sites adopted by the Tournament Committee
  • 10-Stroke maximum per hole, 8-Stroke maximum on par threes

Player eligibility for Tour Championship at Gray's Crossing - Players must play in a minimum of one regular season event to be eligible to play in the Tour Championship at Gray's Crossing.

Start of Play – A player is responsible for being at the assigned tee promptly to begin play on time. A player should arrive at assigned tee ten minutes prior to the player’s starting time in order to receive all information. This means ON the first tee, not just on the practice green. Players will not be called to assigned tees. If a player arrives late, but within five minutes after the assigned starting time, the penalty for failure to start on time will be two strokes at the first hole, instead of disqualification. Once a group finishes the first hole, and a late player hasn't teed off yet, the late player is disqualified and does NOT get to play.

Spectators and parents REMEMBER advice given by anyone other than the players caddy is against the Rules of Golf and and would result in a 2-stroke penalty for the competitor. Please just let the juniors play.

Dress Code

Players and caddies must adhere to the following dress code: only acceptable golf attire is permitted. Players are prohibited from wearing shoes with metal spikes, short shorts, swimwear, and denim of any kind, t-shirts or tank tops. Boys must wear a collared shirt. Hats will be worn forward. Players and caddies without appropriate attire will not be permitted to participate.

Player Code of Conduct

Players will respect the facilities, the game, other players and tournament officials. Players will receive guidance from their Tournament Officials. Violations of the code of conduct include; abusive language, club throwing or slamming a club on the ground, cell phone use, cheating, disrespect of volunteers or officials, abuse to the golf course or the facilities, littering or any other conduct unbecoming of a player. There are no warnings.


  • Caddies are mandatory for the 9 & Under Age Groups
  • Caddies are allowed for age groups 10-13 for pace of play
