Treasure Coast Junior Golf Tour (TCJGT) TEAM Series
TCJGT/IRGF Player’s Club Individual Stroke Play Series
History of TCJGT
The Treasure Coast Junior Golf Tour was launched in 1986, by Bob Komarinetz, PGA Director of Golf at Sandridge Golf Club. The tour provided the opportunity for individual players (ages 6 to 18) to compete in weekly tournaments throughout the summer for players of all skill levels including boys and girls divisions. PGA Professional Bela Nagy joined the staff at Sandridge Golf Club and became involved in the daily operations of the TCJGT.
TCJGT/IRGF TEAM SCRAMBLE Series
The TCJGT TEAM SCRAMBLE Series (established in 2013) is designed to better socialize the game for new players to golf. The SCRAMBLE format of play provides a popular, less stressful way to play the game as opposed to individual stroke play competition. This is a great way to get young players and families involved in the game.
There is no individual scoring in the TCJGT TEAM Series. The 2, 3 or 4 player SCRAMBLE FORMAT allows for all participants to feel connected with the team. Strong play is rewarded, while a less than desired shot does not hurt the team. Players of all skill levels are welcome and will contribute to the team’s success. Every player gets to play…..in every event!
The program is conducted on Saturdays April – May. Mandatory ORIENTATION for players and parents from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. are scheduled Saturdays one to two weeks prior to the start of the Series.
TCJGT/IRGF INDIVIDUAL Stroke Play Series
In 2010, the TCJGT entered into a joint venture with the Indian River Golf Foundation (IRGF) Player’s Club which was designed to embrace the needs of select middle school players and high school players. Bringing these two groups of players together in the TCJGT/IRGF Player’s Club INDIVIDUAL Stroke Play tournament program and setting the stage for future growth of the game of golf in Indian River County and beyond.
The INDIVIDUAL Stroke Play series includes tournaments at area golf facilities followed by the Junior Golf Championship at Sandridge Golf Club.
