Texas Golf Association, Since 1906

Legends Junior Tour Membership

Legends Junior Tour Membership

The four organizations operating the state's most prominent junior golf programs have formed the Texas Junior Golf Alliance, a new partnership that is designed to give junior golfers greater access to top tier competition statewide and ease the burden of travel expense. Texas Golf Association (TGA), the Northern Texas and Southern Texas Sections of the PGA of America and the Houston Golf Association (HGA) have formed a group whose goal is to simplify qualifying for the Legends Junior Tour's statewide high profile events. Collectively each year the four organizations provide playing opportunities to more than 6,000 junior boys and girls in 500-plus tournaments. The PGA Sections have been holding the Texas State Junior Championship since 1922.
