International Junior Golf Tour Releases Fall 2012 Schedule

Highly-Ranked Circuit Returns to TPC Sawgrass, Sea Pines Resort

The International Junior Golf Tour – one of the leading competitive circuits for elite golfers in grades 5-12 –released its 2012 fall schedule on July 9. The schedule includes 16 events in seven U.S. states.

Headquartered on Hilton Head Island, the IJGT offers close to 50 two-and three-day events throughout the U.S. each year. IJGT members represent 45 U.S. states and 43 countries.

“The IJGT is the perfect environment for juniors to test their abilities against top-notch competition on premier golf courses,” says Peter Orrell, President and CEO of Junior Sports Corporation, which owns and operates the IJGT. “To complement our three older divisions, we introduced the Discovery Tour last season for golfers as young as eight years old and the response has been very positive.”

On Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 23-25), more than 100 of the best junior golfers in the world will compete at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Participants will play both the world-renowned Stadium (host of the PGA Tour’s Players Championship) and Valley courses. Dec. 8-9, the IJGT will host the 5th annual Hank Haney Invitational at Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island. Pete Dye’s iconic Harbour Town Golf Links is home to the RBC Heritage each April.

For the fall season, the IJGT has added several new venues. They include Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Va.; past host of the NCAA Division I Men’s National Championship and ranked in Golfweek’s “Top 100 Resort Courses in America.”

IJGT alumni include Webb Simpson, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Paula Creamer and many other PGA and LPGA Tour players. Graduates of the IJGT’s 2012 class will play at several top NCAA collegiate programs across the country: the University of South Carolina, Wake Forest University, Florida State University and University of Southern California, to name a few.
