About the Competition
When the North America Cup was first born, it involved the Canadian Junior Golf Association and the Bermuda Golf Association. This relationship continued for many years when another worldly issue interrupted play. Bermuda then withdrew from the competition.
In 2003, the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) & the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) developed a partnership to enhance the international opportunities for junior golfers in both countries and continue the North America Cup. The North America Cup is unique to both Canada and the USA as it was the first international junior event to take on a Ryder Cup format.
Notable participants of this event include Rickie Fowler (2003) and Morgan Hoffmann (2005).
