The Atlantic Junior Golf Tournament Series (AJGTS) is a product of the Indian River Golf Foundation (IRGF) Players Club (AAU sanctioned), a 501 (c) (3) entity founded in 2008. The purpose of the AJGTS is growth of the game of golf……to encourage affordable golf competition for young players (boys and girls) on a year-round basis. The general concept of competitions originated from discussions with area golf professionals, amateur golfers, parents and young players. A Focus Group met in November, 2010 to discuss possibilities. The group was represented by golf professionals and amateur golfers from Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin Counties. The consensus was to move forward with an emphasis on affordability, access to public and private golf facilities, quality of leadership, year-round programming and a resounding vote of confidence and support in conducting these Team and Individual Competitions on a regional level.
