The Nebraska Golf Association and the Nebraska PGA joined forces in 2009 to bring young golfers the state's premier junior golf organization - the Nebraska Junior Golf Tour (NJGT). The NJGT annually offers roughly 80 competitive golf events for junior golfers beginning at the age of seven continuing through the summer following a golfer's graduation from high school. The series of competitions will include tournaments and events for every level of golfer from TEAM GOLF for the beginner looking to learn or improve, premier tournaments for the more accomplished player and two-day championships ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard.
