Therefore, only members of JGTA are permitted to participate in JGTA tournaments, subject to JGTA’s discretion.

When users apply for a Tour Card with JGTA, Player Services department of JGTA receives and reviews your application to determine if you are currently a member of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA).

Terms of Tour Card

All junior golfers who meet the JGTA Tour Card eligibility criteria and conditions are eligible to purchase a JGTA Tour Card, subject to the discretion of the JGTA. JGTA Tour Cards are issued once per season, which runs from approximately September to May.

JGTA is not responsible for any misinterpretation of the information transmitted or made available to you through the website or any other channel and reserves the right to change the terms of earning such third- party status / recognition points through participation in JGTA, at any time. It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice or other content available through JGTA.ORG. Please seek the advice of the Tour, as appropriate, regarding the evaluation of any specific information, opinion, advice or other content.
