In 1995, the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) opened its doors on Hilton Head Island, SC. At that time, there was no organized school year junior golf tour available for the academy’s students. IJGA, recognized that regular competition experiences were necessary to challenge and develop players; hence, it created the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT).
In its first year of operation, IJGT held eight regional events. Three years later, the IJGT had expanded to 23 events nationwide. It is now in its 25th year of continuous operation.
