"PLAY WELL, PLAY FAIR, PLAY FAST"

-TJGA

We will celebrating our 47th year next season!

The Toledo Junior Golf Association was established in 1973 as a non-profit organization to give junior golfers an opportunity to gain tournament experience in a competitive playing environment.

The summer season runs from June through the first week in August. The season ends in time for the Ohio High School golf season.

Each TJGA player competes for medal and points. Players compete for "Player of the Year Points" that will determine eligibility for the Toledo Junior Invitational Tournament and Banquet.

Again, we are pleased to announce that the "Invitational" will once again be played at the prestigious "Inverness Club", which has been the site of eleven championships, including four U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships.
