GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FCJGT TOUR
The First Citizens Junior Golf Tour is premier junior golf tour in Central Virginia providing players from 6 - 18 years of age the opportunity to play tournament golf.

The Tour works with area golf clubs and junior golf advocates in an effort to provide high quality, well organized, professionally run golf events. The Tour is broken up into 5 age categories (6-8, 9-11, 11-13, 14-15, 16-18) and is open to all boys and girls in the Central Virginia area. Age appropriate tees are used for all age divisions to promote a fun, fair and yet, challenging layout for each player. Players are awarded points based on their performance in each tournament and overall  "Player of the Year" and "Runner-Up" trophies are presently for each age group. 

Over 80 junior golfers participated in the 2014 FCJGT Tour. Much more than golf happens at FCJGT...the kids make new/lasting friendships, strengthen existing friendships, have great fun playing tournament golf on fantastic area golf courses, learn important life skills (sportsmanship, integrity, honesty, self control, discipline), and spend time being part of a growing and fruitful program. 

For more information contact Tour Director, Mr. Bruce B. Stouffer, at (434) 962-4250 or bpstouffer@fcjgt.net or bpstouffer@gmail.com.
