The Texas Junior Golf Tour Inc. (TJGT) was founded in Austin early in 1989. Several Austin High School golf coaches and parents realized the need for higher-level competition during the fall and winter season that would supplement high school golf along with regional PGA/USGA events and provide national exposure to collegiate golf programs. The TJGT started with just eight tournaments and has since expanded to include more than 80 events including The Texas Collegiate Amateur Tour. The TJGT focuses on age groups 11-14 and 15-18 conducting over 70 tournaments starting September 1st through August 31st each year. The “TCAT” (Texas Collegiate Amateur Tour) offers World Amateur Golf and Scratch player rankings for collegiate & amateur players up to age 30 during the summer and holiday breaks. TJGT offers AJGA Performance Based Entry (PBE) at every event as well as Golfweek, Jr. Golf Scoreboard rankings and top-level amateur exemption at selected tournaments. In 1989, tournaments consisted of only local Austin/San Antonio players but has since grown into some of the strongest fields in junior golf. Players from coast to coast, as well as many international countries such as Mexico, Scotland, Venezuela, Ecuador, Canada, China and Korea are now participating. Presently, TJGT invitational and major championships are played at venues such as UT Golf Club @ Texas, Traditions @ Texas A&M, Jimmy Austin GC @ University of Oklahoma, Twin Rivers GC @ Baylor University, Redstone GC Stadium Course, TPC Four Seasons, TPC San Antonio, TPC Craig Ranch, Horseshoe Bay Resort, Barton Creek Resort and historic Dornick Hills CC in Ardmore Ok. Redstone, Four Seasons, TPC San Antonio and TPC Craig Ranch all host PGA Tour Events.
