Registering for an Event
To enter a Junior Tour of Northern California event, you must be a member of the Junior Tour and have a valid NCGA Handicap Index (become an NCGA member). Junior Tour membership is an annual fee of $40 (pay now), which helps subsidize tournament costs.
The Junior Tour of Northern California entry fees are $95 for the majority of our tournaments; however, for some venues the tournament fee may vary depending on venue. This fee includes two rounds of golf, and range balls when the course has a driving range. At most tournaments food will be provided. You should always read the Player Information that is published about 7-10 days before the tournament to see if food will be provided.
For all events other than the Tour Championship, players who have won an Junior Tour of Northern California tournament, the NCGA Junior (including flight winners) or the Junior Players Championship (overall winners only) during the 365 days prior to the first tournament date will be allowed to pre-register starting the Friday before the general opening date of registration. Pre-registration will open at 8:00 AM on Friday and close at 8:00 PM on the Sunday prior to general registration. If eligible, 2011 NCGA Players of the Year may also pre-register for the entire 2012 season during these periods. Players who win events during 2012 will be added to the pre-registration lists for any events that have not yet opened for registration. There will be no pre-registration for the Tour Championship since it is based strictly on the player’s standing on the points list rather than on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Entries are on a modified first-come, first-in basis for all events other than the Tour Championship. General registration will open at 8:00 AM on the tournament open dates. Registration closes at 8:59 PM for each event. Entries for the Tour Championship are held until the closing date, when the top players from the points lists who have entered are put into the field.
