Emerald Coast Junior Golf Tour

Exemptions and Recognition

 
 
In addition to allowing all local juniors to gain valuable tournament playing experience, the Emerald Coast Junior Golf Tour serves as a feeder tour for the FJT - Florida Junior Tour and the AJGA - American Junior Golf Association. Additionally, the results from our two day 36-hole events are forwarded to the National Junior Golf Scoreboard for inclusion in there national junior rankings.
 
The Florida Junior Tour STEP (Special Tournament Exemption Program) allows junior golfers to earn FJT exemptions through local and regional Florida programs. It encourages players to compete in their local and regional junior programs which serve as the backbone of junior golf in Florida.
The Emerald Coast Junior Golf Tour is the approved FJT-STEP Tour on the Emerald Coast.
FJT STEP exemptions will be awarded to the 18 hole divisional winners of the following events:
March Winter Championships 
April Spring Championship and Spring Tour 
May Matchplay
June Rocky Bayou Junior Classic 
July Daily News Junior Classic 
August Summer Championship and Summer Tour
Annual Sportmanship Award
 
 
The AJGA Performance Based Entry Status and FJT STEP exemptions do not guarantee entry into events on the respective tours. They give priority status and players also still need to join the respective Tours to utilize their exemptions.

It is with great pleasure that we can announce our AJGA PBE Status allotment for 2016 As you can see the Girls are receiving a larger allocation, although the AJGA has asked us to send them the results of all our 2 day events with the possibility of them awarding Performance Stars after the fact, if they feel the fields are worthy.

The following events will guarantee Performance Stars for the winners:
