Philadelphia Junior Tour Event Update

Parents and Juniors,

The health and safety of our membership, staff, and partners continue to be our top priority. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and golf courses remain closed under state executive actions, the Philadelphia Junior Tour has postponed all tournaments through May 10. Our hope is to resume our tournament schedule on May 16 for the State College Open at Penn State Golf Courses.

All tournament applications for postponed events will be fully refunded to the original payment and no action is needed for those refunds. We understand that everyone is anxiously waiting for the golf season to start, but the safety and health of our membership is of the utmost importance to our staff. Please reach out if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Thanks,

PJT Task Force

About Junior Golf Hub

Junior Golf Hub was founded to help players and parents navigate the journey to college golf while helping coaches find top talent. We know that families feel overwhelmed with the recruiting process. We also notice a clear need from college golf coaches. Coaches are inundated with e-mails and resumes and want to cut through the clutter and filter their prospects based on key parameters. Junior Golf Hub was designed to solve these needs. Players create profiles that are searchable by the coaches, “Find and Follow” college golf programs and receive education on the dos and dont’s of the recruiting process. College coaches find and filter the top talent they are looking for. Everyone comes out ahead and life becomes a bit easier for all of our members. For more information, visit juniorgolfhub.com.
