Junior Development Tour offers a non-intimidating, FUN, focused, junior golf environment purposed to foster friendships, inspire commitment and offer guidance in skill development. JDT events include shortened golf courses, stroke limits, parent caddies, levels of progressions, and rules of golf learning components.
Each JDT event will offer those in attendance the opportunity to learn the rules & regulations of golf, and to further the junior’s skill development during the on-course 9-hole play. The type of learning component will vary from event to keep the format from getting stagnant over the course of the year.
Juniors advance to the next level by shooting Instant Scores & Average Scores.
Instant Score – Allows your junior to “instantly” move up to the next level of play
Average Score – Your junior must successfully shoot an average score (3) times throughout the year (Spring – Summer – Fall seasons) to move up to the next level of play
All target scores (Instant & Average) will be posted on the event’s information page.
Juniors that have previously played in the Gateway PGA’s JDT will be given a recommended level of play. ALL Gateway PGA JDT Team recommendations are final. New juniors must first play in Level 1 -Fairway Finders (OR) Ask your junior’s coach/PGA Pro to contact the Gateway PGA to recommend a specific division of play.
