The Players Tour is an invitational program where the Minnesota PGA Junior Golf Committee and staff determines eligibility requirements. This is open to boys and girls ages 13-19. Juniors who have reached their 19th birthday prior to September 1, 2022 are eligible only if they have immediately finished their senior year of high school. The goal of the Players Tour is to have the top junior golfers in the Section compete on golf courses set up appropriately for a high level of play. The Players Tour will now offer all 36-hole individual stroke play tournaments. All Players Tour events are nationally ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard, as well as recognized by AJGA Performance Based Entry stars in these collegiate style events. These tour events will allow all boys and girls to showcase their talent in an elite overall boy and girls contest (no age divisions). This tour is meant for highly skilled players with tournament experience. Course yardages will be approximately 6,600 – 6,900 for boys and 5,600 – 5,900 for girls. Each 36-hole Players Tour Event has an entry fee of $150.00. The annual membership fee for the Players Tour is $150.00.
