The SOPGA Jr. Tour was established in 2008 by the Southern Ohio PGA as an extension of the association’s more than 500 Members and Associates teaching juniors the game of golf throughout Central and Southern Ohio. Through the Players Tour and Junior Series, the SOPGA Jr. Tour aims to develop young golfers while providing outstanding competitions on a local level. For almost 15 years, the SOPGA Jr. Tour has fostered the values of the game, like sportsmanship and integrity, among its members.
Southern Ohio PGA Junior Tour Memberships are open to all junior amateurs who live in the state of Ohio from the ages of 9-19. If a junior does not live in Ohio, he or she is required to submit proof or active enrollment in an Ohio school. Membership 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 2022 event (July 28, 2022). Players must be a SOPGA Jr. Tour Member to play in Players Tour and Junior Series events. Check the specific requirements (above) of both the Players Tour and the Junior Series to determine which Tour you are eligible to play.
