The WNYPGA PGA Junior Tour is home to one of the largest Junior Golf programs in the region. Each year, the Junior Program serves nearly 250 Junior Members and their families. Since it’s inception in 1999 the WNYPGA Junior Tour has conducted over 20,000 rounds of golf. The WNYPGA Junior Tour offers several age groups and provides 9 Hole, 18 Hole, & 36-hole options to best fit your junior’s skill level and help them to reach their goals in competition & the development of the golf game. The tour’s main mission is to promote the growth of the game and is open to all skill levels of golfers.
The WNYPGA Junior Tour is unique in the aspect that there is only one up front membership fee and then no additional per event fees. This model was created to make it as affordable as possible to all kids across the region. All registered players may register for up to 10 events (full-time) and up to 5 events (part-time). Please note: Entry into each event is on a first come, first served basis and the 10 or 5 events is NOT guaranteed. Due to the popularity of the tour we encourage early signups.

Partial refunds while in season will only be considered if ALL events are completely booked and/or there are extraordinary personal circumstances.
The WNYPGA Junior Tour is dedicated to helping our community’s youth learn the life lessons that golf provides while competing and making lifelong friendships. In order to provide the best experience possible for juniors at all levels, we have a wide scope of competitive & development junior golf options.
