International Events

About These Events

As part of its comprehensive 6-stage development program, the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) provides elite junior golfers with the opportunity to qualify for international events and represent CJGA Team Canada through the CJGA Junior Tour and CJGA Linkster Tour.

The CJGA strives to host qualifying tournaments nationwide, ensuring all members have the chance to participate. However, due to logistical constraints, the number of qualifying opportunities may be limited and therefore restricted to specific regions.

Selection of players to represent Canada is based on established qualifiers held in each designated province, ensuring a fair and rigorous process.

Qualifying Opportunities

Over the past 31 years of hosting elite competitions, the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) has established strong relationships with numerous international federations, associations, and tournament organizations. These partnerships have enabled our members to secure spots on CJGA Team Canada, granting them access to some of the world’s most prestigious international junior competitions.

To learn how to qualify for international competitions through the CJGA, please visit the “International Event Qualifying” section under the tournament drop-down menu on our website. Select the event that interests you to find detailed information on the qualification process.

How Players / Teams are Chosen

To qualify, players must achieve a combined score of no less than 150 over two rounds. Eligible players across Canada are then entered into a data spreadsheet.

The evaluation process considers scores, course conditions, difficulty level, and weather, with a point system applied to all factors except the score.

Once this information is compiled, an Excel spreadsheet is used to sort all relevant data. Players ranked highest in this realignment are given the first opportunity to qualify. If they are unable to attend, the opportunity passes to the next player on the list, and so forth. Ties in the selection process are resolved according to Section A of the CJGA Conditions of the Competition.

If a qualifying event is cancelled for a day due to specific conditions, and the qualifying is reduced to one day, the score consideration will be adjusted. This adjustment will be posted by the CJGA Committee before the selection process.

Team Legacy

CJGA members and CJGA Team Canada juniors have achieved remarkable success in international competitions.

In 2003, CJGA Team Canada won its first World Junior Golf Cup in Scotland, later renamed the Euro Junior Golf Cup, triumphing over a formidable American team. The team continued its winning streak with victories in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015, consistently outperforming Team USA and the Fife Golfing Union.

In 2004, CJGA Team Canada secured its first North America Cup victory at Berkeley Hall Golf Club in Hilton Head, SC. The team reclaimed the title in 2007 with a win at Weston Golf & Country Club in Toronto. After a seven-year hiatus, CJGA Team Canada captured the cup again in 2014 on American soil. They went on to win consecutive North America Cups in 2018 and 2019, with victories in both the USA and Canada.

CJGA alumni have also delivered outstanding individual performances on the international stage, including notable golfers such as Adam Hadwin, Corey Conners, Mackenzie Hughes, Nick Taylor, Adam Svensson, Brooke Henderson, and Alena Sharp.
