This tournament is open to all junior golfers between the ages of 11-18. Being played at the majestic Kiawah Island Golf Resort, this tournament has a great deal at stake. The champion in each division will win AJGA Performance Stars if their respective field size requirements are met.

Winners in each division will receive an automatic bid into the HJGT 2014 Tour Championship and Mid-Season Invitational.

The Kiawah Island Junior Challenge will be a 36-hole stroke play event. The first round will begin on Saturday with a shotgun start at 9AM.

Kiawah Island Golf Resort is home to five prestigious courses. This Junior Challenge will be held at the Cougar Point Golf Course. It was recently rated the "Golf Course of The Year", by the South Carolina Golf Course Owners Association. One of the most dramatic vistas on the island is the middle of Cougar Point’s front nine, along the Kiawah River, making this course a very memorable one. Originally named Marsh Point, Cougar Point was redesigned by Gary Player in 1996. It features a great blend of short and long par-4s, great risk/reward par-5s and extremely scenic and challenging par-3s. It was recently awarded a near-perfect 4½ stars in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” reader’s poll. With challenging holes and breathtaking landscapes this course is one of the prettiest in South Carolina.
