The SOPGA Junior Tour was founded in 2008. The Tour offers a superior junior golf experience. Our goal is to help develop younger golfers as well as provide outstanding competitions on a local level. In addition, this program strives to foster sportsmanship and integrity among its members.
The Southern Ohio PGA Junior Tours are open to all junior amateurs who live in the state of Ohio from the ages of 7-18. If a junior does not live in Ohio he or she is required to submit proof or active enrollment in an Ohio school. Applications will be open to juniors who have not reached their 19th birthday or started their freshman year of college by midnight on the last day of the final 2017 event (July 31, 2017). All juniors must pass the USGA Rules of Golf exam in order to become eligible to participate. Check the specific requirements of both the SOPGA Junior Tour and the SOPGA Futures Tour to determine which Tour you are eligible to play.
