Mission

The Legends Junior Tour is part of the Texas Junior Golf Alliance; a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association, Northern and Southern Texas PGA and Houston Golf Association. The Tour operates as part of the Texas Golf Association and its Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Since its inception in 2005, the Tour has provided over $250,000 to promote junior golf initiatives and exposure to the game to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity across the state. The Legends Junior Tour is home to such prestigious events as the HP Byron Nelson Junior Championship, Texas Cup Invitational, Jackie Burke Cup and Texas State Junior Championship.

An important aspect of the Legends Junior Tour is that we are part of the AJGA Performance Based Entry process, with the majority of events on the schedule awarding AJGA Performance Stars to top finishers.

Eligibility will be open to young men and women ages 19 & under, who meet the minimum handicap requirements and have distinguished themselves in local, regional, statewide and national competitions. The Legends Junior Tour will also serve as a natural progression for those players who have competed successfully in the HGA, NTPGA and STPGA's developmental junior series.

Objectives of the Legends Junior Tour

  • Utilize the strengths of the HGA, NTPGA, STPGA, and TGA to establish a professional, competitive environment where the state's best junior players can develop and demonstrate their skills
  • Provide innovative resources and services to junior golfers in search of college scholarships
  • Foster golf's fine traditions of integrity, character, self-reliance, and sportsmanship
  • Recognize notable individuals from the past and present who have made a significant impact to the history of golf in Texas
  • Continue to advance the game to a wide variety of people from all socioeconomic backgrounds

Good For The Game

The Legends Junior Tour was established under the umbrella of the Texas Golf Association Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1999 as part of an initiative to promote the game of golf and all of the personal and social skills the game provides to those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to experience all the benefits the game has to offer.

Proceeds generated from the Legends Junior Tour and our corporate partners go toward supporting a number of worthy causes including The First Tee programs and the NTPGA run Golf-In-Schools program, which introduces elementary and middle school students to the game of golf through the physical education curriculum.

Since its inception in 2005, the Legends Junior Tour has given back more than $250, 000 to non-profit groups including the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, The First Tee of Tyler, The First Tee of Dallas, the Babe Didrikson Zaharias Foundation, Shriners Hospital, the Neo-Natal ICU at Plano Medical Center and the Autism Society.
