Looking to Play Golf in college?

High school golf is no longer enough to get interest from college recruiters and scouts. Like many other High School sports, there are additional competitive leagues and programs that offer more opportunities to play against other top-notch players in the area, state and country. BJGT is a prime example and offers junior golfers the chance to compete in Nationally Ranked Events to enhance their skills and ultimately get recruited. To get Nationally Ranked by organizations like Junior Golf Scoreboard and Global Junior Golf Rankings, all BJGT tournaments meet certain requirements to ensure a consistent national ranking system. For starters, all events must be 2-day, 36-hole tournaments and are conducted under the USGA rules of golf. For more information on national rankings, go to our National Junior Golf Rankings page.

National Rankings are the first step to getting recognized by any college, DI – DIII, and all of Buckeye Junior Golf Tour events provide these rankings! In addition to rankings, BJGT has over 50 college coaches recruiting our events! If you are looking to play at the Collegiate Level but aren’t sure where to start or what to do next, we totally understand! Our College Bound Membership is for any junior golfer (Freshman-Senior)  looking to not only play College Golf, but to find the right school based on what they are looking for in a college academically and also based on their ability. Below is what is included with our College Bound Membership:

  • Tour Membership items and discounts
