The Junior Tour

The First Tee of Greater Sacramento Junior Tour is a year round competitive tournament program for boys and girls ages 12-18. Juniors are able to play and compete on over 24 different area golf courses. The tournament season runs from March through February of the following year. The First Tee of Greater Sacramento Jr Tour allows juniors to play until their 19th birthday, or their first day of college, whichever comes first.

We are happy to announce that we will be continuing the use of the Blue Golf™ for on-line membership and event registration, results updates, points and scoring average standings, and more.  This system has been a wonderful and exciting addition to our members and the Jr Tour.  Membership Fee:  $125 PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible to register for events, you must first register for the junior tour.
