How to join the BGA Junior Tour

Welcome to the Birmingham Golf Association Junior Tour

The Birmingham Golf Association dates to 1965 and has run a Junior Championship annually since that time. Legendary Birmingham golfer Sam Farlow won the inaugural championship. The Junior Tour is known for its value for money and the quality of golf courses played on this developmental tour.

Sign up is now closed, but will open back up in early 2019, so watch this space…

If you are already a member, we look forward, in due course, to welcoming you back for another great summer schedule in 2019. Make sure to log into your account and rejoin the tour. Do so by clicking the Sign Up “button” at the top of this page and following the steps.

Click here to view the schedule. I’m sure you will agree we have lined up another stellar schedule.

If your junior is not a member, follow these steps to join the tour:

1. Click the Sign Up “button” at the top of this page.

5. Put in your credit card information and click register. (At this time, you will also be asked about an additional service: The Premium Players Club. This is optional.)

6. You will then receive two emails. The first will thank you for registering. The second will be telling you your payment is approved (assuming it is) and will contain your Players Club ID and password. At this point, there will be a link for you to change your temporary password or you can leave it alone. You will log in at this time via the Players Club “button” to the left.

* You will note, when looking at the schedule, that you may only choose up to two of the four premium venues, but there is no requirement to play in any premium event. The premium venues in 2018 were:

Event 13, The Country Club of Birmingham (East Course)

Event 15, Greystone Golf & CC (Founders Course)

Event 16, Shoal Creek

Event 19, Willow Point Golf & CC

The 2019 premium venues will be announced when the complete schedule is announced.
