What is the Prestige Tour?
The Prestige Tour is the most competitive program that the STPGA has to offer. It is geared towards the best players in the state of Texas. Started in 2012, this tour has become extremely successful and a great stepping stone for juniors as they prepare for state and national events as well as college golf! This tour is meant for highly skilled players with tournament experience.
Players must have recorded a score of 85 or better in an STPGA Junior Tour tournament. The first alternative is providing the STPGA with results of 85 or better in two outside tournaments. Another option is sending a Letter of Recommendation from the player's PGA Professional to Becky Dobrzynski.
All players should be able to break 90 in tournament conditions to play on this tour.
The events are open to juniors ages 13-18. Players will be split into the following 4 divisions:
Boys 13-14 (6,600 - 6,900 yards)
Boys 15-18 (6,600 - 6,900 yards)
Girls 13-14 (5,600 - 5,900 yards)*
Girls 15-18 (5,600 - 5,900 yards)*
*Girls 13-18 and Boys 13-18 will play the same yardages
Boys Division Change Policy
Starting on September 1, 2018, the Boys 13-14 and 15-18 divisions will combine to make the Boys 13-18 division for all future Srixon Prestige Tour tournaments. The approximate yardage guideline for this new division will be 6,600-6,900 yards. Yardage guidelines will always be posted to the Tournament Information Page prior to the event. A major factor in junior golf events is earning AJGA PBE status. This division change will help us to meet these AJGA requirements more often, adding additional PBE status to Srixon Prestige Tour events. All players in the new Boys 13-18 division will be eligible for Legends Junior Tour exemptions as well. Boys 13-14 will continue with its points list and awards at events.
Since all the girls play from the same yardage at our Prestige Tour events, we will combine the two divisions to make a 13-18 division when awarding exemptions, Player of the Year points, and sending results into the Legends Junior Tour for POY, Junior Golf Scoreboard, Golfweek, and AJGA. The same procedure will take place for the boys.
