Champions Junior Golf Tour

In 2007, the Champions Junior Golf Tour began providing an affordable, quality, comprehensive junior golf program with the only criteria for competition being age. This innovative program is designed to offer many different golf opportunities for the junior golfer on local, state and national platforms.

Champions offers weekly year-round leagues in Clearwater, Dunedin, Tampa and Sarasota, plus more than 40 regional statewide tournaments, as well as summer camps, clinics and seminars. This year the national tournaments are being held in Kingsport, TN and Birmingham, AL. The Florida State Tournament and the National Invitational Tournament will be in Bradenton, FL.

Champions has introduced the new TEAM Challenge event, where local teams will be playing against teams from other states, as well as in the Florida-Georgia Challenge this November. The TEAM Challenge is a perfect way for juniors and coaches to work together and learn rules, shot selection and course management during a competition. The TEAM Challenge at the 2009 NIC event will host US teams from NC, SC, IN, OH, GA, FL and International Teams from South America.

The Champions’ National office is located in Bradenton, at the Suncoast Golf Center. The Suncoast Golf Center offers a lighted par 3, driving range and practice area which is used by Champions for many of it’s training programs. In addition, the Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club in Clearwater, the St Andrews Golf Links in Dunedin and the IMG Golf and Country Club in Bradenton, are supplementary locations for Champions members and guests to play in weekly leagues, tournaments and group programs.

Champions hosts events from Naples to Gainesville (expanding into the Pensacola - Tallahassee region this summer) and will host the Florida-Georgia Challenge in November.  Naples, Tampa, Mission Inn, Clearwater, Ft Myers and Venice all host Champions Regional State Qualifier events during the fall months in preparation for the Florida State Tournament in October.

Offering events and programs for juniors from 6-18 years of age, Champions has a program for basic beginners to the elite junior player. Annual membership for Champions is only $60.00 per year which includes a custom embroidered hat, personalized bag tag, member friendly Web site, use of junior clubs, discounts on events & camps, guaranteed placement in events, an Offi cial USGA Rules booklet, pre-event seminars, initial assessment and evaluation, awards at events, regional, state and national events, professional instruction, discounts on Champions’ merchandise, newsletter updates, invitation to the annual Champions Cup and an annual membership to the Big Golf - which will save hundreds of dollars in greens fees and equipment during the year.
