Press Release

The St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour are announcing Major Changers in 2019

The Tour will be under New Management

The Junior Tour which attracts over 100 Junior Competitors annually will now be managed by CPGA Professionals, in conjunction with the Black Bear Ridge Golf Club, with Bill Kerr Jr. (34 years CPGA Professional) as the convenor and adding his support to the new Management team.

The Tour is now in its 35th year and runs approximately 10 Tour events from the end of June to the middle of August and are held at various host clubs from Trenton in the west to Gananoque in the east. The new Management Team will be Ben Graham, Jamie Nicholas, and Will Kerr. Joe McConkey will continue as the Webmaster. The Tour will continue with the same emphasis on growing the game. 

Some Tour Alumni include LPGA player Brooke Henderson and Brittany Henderson, and Former PGA Tour players John Mills and Matt McQuilliam. In addition to promoting the game, teaching the rules and etiquette, and promoting players to continue in the game professionally, obtaining scholarships, or a career in Golf Management, the committee will be introducing a teaching component to the 2019 Tours program.  

There will be several teaching clinics over the summer to our members as well as individual lessons. The costs for these additional programs will be announced soon. These teaching components will also be available to non-Tour players.

The Junior Tour will open the season with a one-day Junior Camp, which will include Registration and Orientation to the Tour and is scheduled for Saturday June 15th, 2019 from 2.00 – 4.00 pm. at Black Bear Ridge G.C. at the Driving Range. REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED.

 Important Notice to all St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour Players  

It is very important that you register for any of our events at least 4/5 days before a tournament. The tour event dates are published late in May on the Website, which gives you plenty of time to plan your schedule. All of our Host Clubs want to work with us to provide a Junior Program but they do have a business to run and they are not prepared to leave tee times open to accommodate a Junior Tournament if the players are not going to register in a reasonable time.   


Changes to your Registration Records

If you have any changes to your registration files such as address change, email, phone number, health card #, club affiliation, please send the changes through our contact page. The St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour will not be responsible if you records are not current, and you can not be contacted by email or phone.
