Multi-year partnership builds on existing relationship formed in 2021
The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is ecstatic to announce a multi-year partnership agreement with the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT), which builds upon the partnership formed with them in 2021. This partnership will come to fruition starting in 2023 and extend until the end of 2024.
The extension of this partnership will see the HJGT continue to be the American association in the annual CJGA North America Cup, which will make its highly awaited return to the CJGA schedule in 2023 for the first time since 2019. The partnership will also see the creation of the CJGA Hurricane Series, which will consist of five junior tour events and one championship event on the 2023 CJGA season schedule.
“We are beyond thrilled to continue our partnership with the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour for the 2023 season and beyond,” said CJGA Director of Tour Operations, Tyler Torrieri, “Mario and the team at HJGT have been incredible to work with throughout the 2022 season, and we are excited to continue collaborating with them to bring more opportunities to our players and grow the game throughout North America.”
Founded in 2007, the HJGT provides over 325 events throughout the United States and operates out of Orlando, Florida.
“We couldn’t be more excited to expand our partnership with our dear friends north of the border,” said HJGT Executive Director/Founder, Mario Conte. “Our goals, core values, and vision has always aligned with the CJGA and we can’t wait to bring this relationship to the next level in 2023.”
