Overview

The Iowa PGA Junior Tour consists of single and multi-day events. Juniors will either play 9 or 18 holes on a tournament day. Some events will be played over two days. Players should be able to walk and carry their clubs for eighteen holes. Players should also be able to keep score and keep pace with the rest of the players. Events will be categorized into 4 different point levels: Major, Ace, Eagle or Birdie. The point level of the event will determine the amount of Player of the Year points awarded.
