Junior Competitive Pathway

Canada’s Junior Competitive Pathway is a valuable tool to assist players and parents in choosing appropriate competitions for junior aged players based on several factors including age, current tournament handicap and stage of development (based on the Long-Term Player Development Guide for Golf in Canada). The pathway also illustrates what level of PGA of Canada training / certification is recommended for coaching players at the various stages of development.

Contact your local golf course to inquire about any upcoming junior invitationals. Many are listed here on our website: CLICK HERE

Other competitions can be found here at MJT and CJGA.

If you are a member of a golf club a great place to start is your club championship.
