Ages & Divisions

Boys 10-19 years old and Girls 14-19 years old are eligible to play on the Buckeye Junior Golf Tour. If a player is below the age limit but would still like to play on the BJGT, we can make exceptions based on their skill level, please email us at [email protected]. If a player turns 19 before August 1st, 2022, they are not eligible to play on the BJGT. Also, once a player has started attending college, they will no longer be eligible to play on the BJGT.

Divisions are determined by Age AND Skill. If a player is eligible for two Age Divisions throughout the season, we ask they play in the division that best represents their skill level. If a player averages above 100 for example, we ask they play in the younger division. If you have questions about which division is best, feel free to reach out [email protected]. Below is a breakdown of each Age Division with the corresponding yardages:

Divisions Yardages
Boys 10-14 5,600 – 5,900 yards
Boys 15-19 6,500 – 6,900 yards
Girls 14-19 5,600 – 5,900 yards

What if I am eligible for two Age Divisions throughout the season?

BJGT’s age division cutoff date is August 1st. Whatever the player’s age is on August 1st, 2022 will be the division they will play in for the entire 2021 season. *If a player switches divisions during the season, POY Points will NOT transfer from one division to the other.
