The Junior Development Tour is a way for juniors to gain competitive golf experience in a more relaxed and fun environment. It is a way for junior golfers to gain knowledge of the rules, etiquette and competitive nature of tournament golf. First and foremost, we want the juniors to have fun on the golf course. The JDT is not meant to be extremely competitive but rather meant to give players the experience they need to be comfortable playing competitive golf and move to the next level.
