Our Story

The Canadian Junior Golf Association was founded in 1993 to provide young golfers with the opportunity to develop their competitive skills.

Today, the CJGA tour is the premier junior golf development tour in Canada. What’s more, our golfers compete all around the world.

We are a nonprofit and RCAAA (registered Canadian amateur athletic association).

Our Vision

The CJGA is dedicated to enriching the lives of young people in the golf community and to providing them with skills and knowledge that will be foundational to their adult lives. The future of Canada and the broader world will depend on our kids, so we aim to help them rise to the occasion.
