Understanding the CJGA Schedule

In 2015, the Canadian Junior Golf Association will run over 85 tournaments across Canada for junior golfers aged 5-19. Because of the size and scope of the schedule, selecting what events to play can often be a daunting task for the nation’s junior golfers. The following will provide you with an overview of how to navigate the CJGA schedule and plan a schedule that best fits your needs.

Remember, CJGA staff members are here to help. The CJGA is able to assist you in planning your schedule and can be reached at 1-877-508-1069 or by email at info@cjga.com.
