                                  ABOUT THE ELITE SERIES

In its first full season, the series will be concentrated in Orlando, Florida and Hilton Head, South Carolina with one open Boys division and one open Girls division. 

The purpose of these events is to have junior golfers play on courses that mimic the setup of college golf which furthers the HJGT’s mission to grow the game of golf amongst juniors. Minimum yardages for Boys will be 7,000 yards (or as long as the course plays) while the girls will play 6,000 yards.

“We are extremely excited to add yet another layer of top notch events to the HJGT’s schedule,” said Mario Conte, Executive Director/Founder, HJGT. “These elite events will give our top players a chance to compete against the best competition on golf courses that are setup to mirror what they will see in college golf. With the support from the IJGT, IJGA, and BGGA these events will be successful immediately with some of the top juniors in the world.”

To qualify for these 84 player max field events one must be: in the Top 25% on the HJGT points list (at the time of sign up), in the Top 33% in the Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings (at the time of sign up), a winner of an HJGT event in the last 365 days, a Top 5 finisher in any HJGT invitational, or a member of the 2018 All-HJGT team. At each event 5 scholarships will be awarded through the Hurricane Foundation based on financial need and playing ability. To apply for the scholarships please visit HJGT.org and visit the “HJGT Charity” webpage. 

 “With the support of their partner International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT), the Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) and International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) are proud to support the newly formed elite series events with their strongest students,” said Andrew Summers, CEO of IJGT, IJGA, and BGGA.  Students from these academies won seventy junior golf events, including many high profile national events, and through their participation will ensure that the HJGT elite series events have amongst the strongest fields in junior golf outside of the premier national events.”

The HJGT has also partnered with the Faldo Series and all top finishers from Elite Series events will qualify to play in the Faldo Series Grand finale. The Faldo Series has been around for 22 years and features the top players from around the world.
