Step # 1:
Determining the Appropriate Division

Visit "Membership Levels/Fees" under Policies section for Step 2
To determine the appropriate division to play in, ask yourself the following questions:
  1. What will be your age on the last day of your respective division championship? (see above)
  2. What is your average score on the number of holes played from the designated yardage chart below?
  3. If your average score is on the borderline, or wish to compete with better players, we suggest you move up to the Masters division in your age group.

Masters Division
The Masters Division is the highest form of competition offered by the Toyota TGA Junior Tour. This division is designed for the lower handicapped players ages 10 to 18. These players should have a proven ability to compete at a high level and a strong will to excel in tournament conditions. The Toyota TGA Junior Tour expects Masters Division players to be exemplary role models for all players. Players must be very knowledgeable of the USGA Rules of Golf as well as the etiquette and traditions of the game that are guarded so strongly by the Tennessee Golf Association.

Players MUST be on the "
Masters Division Eligibility List" in order to compete within this division. If your name is not on the list below your registration will be delayed.

2013 Masters Division Eligibility List - To be added, please call Junior Tour office at 615.790.3336 for more information

For a further explanation of both the Masters Division and development of the "Master Division Eligibility List" click here.

Tour Division
The Tour Division is the most comprehensive division offered by the Toyota TGA Junior Tour. This division is designed for players ages 10 to 18 that are fairly skilled in the game of golf, but in the process of developing their competitive game. These players traditionally have higher handicaps and are less experienced in tournament golf. Please review the chart above to see if your ability falls into this category. With the wide range of ability levels within the Tour Division we recommend to those on the bubble to move up to the Masters Division to have an opportunity to increase their skill level. If a player feels they would like to move up, please call the office at 615.790.3336 and talk with the Tour staff to put your name on the "Masters Division Eligibility List".

Micro Division and 4-7 Age Division
The Micro Division is designed for players 8 to 11 years old of all ability levels. Micro Division players will compete on Par 3, Executive and Regulation size golf courses. Players are allowed to use an adult caddie throughout regular and post-season events. Beginners are encouraged to sign up for the Par 3 courses so they can get accustomed to playing in tournaments at golf courses that are less challenging than others. More advanced players are STRONGLY encouraged to play longer courses to gain the best experience. The most advanced players may also choose to play up in the Tour or Masters Divisions which play 9 holes from a longer yardage at the more difficult golf courses on the schedule. See above for more information on those divisions.

4-7 Division
As the game of golf begins to reach even the youngest players, we are excited to provide them with a number of tournament opportunities across the state. Our 4-7 division is designed to encourage learning and enjoyment of the game rather than the competition. Players will play six (6) holes and adults will be asked to caddie in order to assist the player in the learning process. Only one (1) designated caddie will be able to give the player advice at one time. The caddie will also be responsible for keeping score. Players are limited to twelve (12) strokes per hole, including "whiffs".
