Tour Overview

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 competitive and learning environment to experience the game in a new way or to test the skills of an already competitively 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 very beneficial in life. These basic qualities, and awareness of them, will always be a primary focus for our players.

The TTJGT is designed for the junior golfer in providing;

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

Players will be accompanied by knowledgeable and accomplished players (TTJGT Tournament Officials) who will help in coaching players on pace of play, scorekeeping, course etiquette, course care and the basic rules.

Participants do NOT have to be high level players. They do need to have basic golf knowledge and have played 9 or 18 holes before. Players must be ready and capable to play in a timely manner and be ready to account for each shot played. The Tournament Officials will NOT be teaching the basic fundamentals of golf and 1st time golfers. The TTJGT is the next step for junior golfers who already have the 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.
