JGA Tour Registration

The JGA Tour is a collaborative tour operated by the Alabama Golf Association and Alabama-NW Florida PGA Section. The tour is designed specifically to remove barriers, such as cost, while also offering premier junior golf tournaments at some of the finest facilities in Alabama and NW Florida.

All JGA Tour participants must have an active GHIN® number and a free Golf Genius player profile account to register for an event.
