Leading Junior Golf Academies BGGA and IJGA Launch Series of Elite Junior Events with HJGT

Through collaboration with partner IJGT and Hurricane Golf Tour

Through collaboration with our partner IJGT and another leading junior golf tour HJGT, Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) and International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA)  have launched a series of new elite events, by invitation only, to the strongest junior golfers, starting with two events Fall 2018 and four Spring 2019, giving BGGA and IJGA students better opportunities for higher ranking points through stronger fields.

In its first full season, the series will be concentrated in Orlando, Florida and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with one open Boys division and one open Girls division.

The purpose of these events is to have junior golfers play on courses that mimic the setup of college golf which furthers the HJGT’s mission to grow the game of golf amongst juniors. Minimum yardages for Boys will be 7,000 yards (or as long as the course plays) while the girls will play 6,000 yards.

“We are extremely excited to add yet another layer of top notch events to the HJGT’s schedule,” said Mario Conte, Executive Director/Founder, HJGT. “These elite events will give our top players a chance to compete against the best competition on golf courses that are setup to mirror what they will see in college golf. With the support from the IJGT, IJGA, and BGGA these events will be successful immediately with some of the top juniors in the world.”

To qualify for these 84 player max field events one must be: in the Top 25% on the HJGT points list (at the time of sign up), in the Top 33% in the Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings (at the time of sign up), a winner of an HJGT event in the last 365 days, a Top 5 finisher in any HJGT invitational, or a member of the 2018 All-HJGT team. At each event 5 scholarships will be awarded through the Hurricane Foundation based on financial need and playing ability. To apply for the scholarships please visit HJGT.org and visit the “HJGT Charity” webpage.

“With the support of their partner International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT), the Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) and International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) are proud to support the newly formed elite series events with their strongest students,” said Andrew Summers, CEO of IJGT, IJGA, and BGGA.  Students from these academies won seventy junior golf events, including many high profile national events, and through their participation will ensure that the HJGT elite series events have amongst the strongest fields in junior golf outside of the premier national events.”

In addition, through our partnership with IJGT our students also compete in Faldo Series Regional Finals, on route to U.S. Grand Finals, where winners go on to play Faldo European or Asian Grand Finals.
