The RecruitLook Junior Golf Tour (RLJGT) was founded to give golfers a competitive landscape to improve their golf game, while increasing their visibility to college coaches. Our goal is to conduct professionally-run tournaments that are affordable, fun, and competitive for all golfers/families. The RLJGT began in 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has now expanded into new regions across the country. Each tour location will feature some of the nicest golf courses in the area — giving junior golfers the chance to play great courses at an affordable rate! Each event is a new 36-hole tournament for boys and girls ranging from 9-18 years in age. Each tour will operate their own separate tournaments and have their own overall tour winners. The Tour Championship will be held at the end of the year for each tour. Make sure you are dedicated to improving your game on the range and practice greens; because the RecruitLook Junior Golf Tour will only have ONE CHAMPION!

We offer the highest in customer service at all our events. By paying attention to the details, we are able to bring to the players and parents a memorable golf experience. Most people will say we are a friendly tour; because our tournaments are built to help junior golfers. Our staff is very passionate about junior golf and providing the juniors with the tools necessary to succeed. We create the most professional junior golf tournament experience… at the most affordable price. We play on some of the best courses in the country and will continue to strive to always find courses that will challenge the players.
We put an emphasis on college golf recruiting too. The purpose of playing in competitive events like on the RLJGT is to get more college recruiting exposure. We’ll have RecruitLook Scouts at each event to scout and evaluate the talent, offering constructive feedback to help the golfers better position themselves for college scholarship opportunities. Furthermore, we’ll be inviting college coaches to attend the RLJGT events, as well as sending out tournament results to each college golf coach around the country.
We value each and every one of our tour participants.
Yes. The goal of the tour is to accumulate enough points at the events to qualify for the invite only Tour Championship.
We’ll crown the tour winner after the completion of the Tour Championship.
Each tournament event will also have individual winners.
Each Tour location operates independently from each other. The Colorado Tour will have its own winners, the Nevada Tour has its own, the SoCal has its own, and so-on. However, our registrations are open to all junior golfers to play in all the tours. Your points would count towards that tour. You do not have to pay another membership fee to play in all the tours, you only need to pay it once.
You will need to contact the Tour Director in the area you are looking to play in if you are coming over from another tour. They will issue you a signup code to bypass the membership fee. We will verify that you have paid the membership fee before issuing you the code.

Age divisions and yardages for all RLJGT events are: Boys 15-18 Minimum 6,200 Yards Boys 13-14 Minimum 6,200 Yards Boys 11-12 Minimum 5,800 Yards Boys 9-10 Minimum 4,500 Yards Girls 15-18 Minimum 5,500 Yards Girls 13-14 Minimum 5,500 Yards Girls 11-12 Minimum 5,000 Yards Girls 9-10 Minimum 4,500 Yards
Yardages at our events will be based on the playability and difficulty of the course. In order to receive AJGA recognition, a field of at least 40 boys is needed. We will sometimes combine the 13-14 & 15-18 to reach this number, but the 13-14 will still have their age division champion. In the girls division, it is 12 players, boys 11-12, 20 players, and 6 girls in the 11-12.
You may play up in an older division if you wish. Simply call the Tournament Director and he will discuss placement with you. If you do choose to play up, your scores will only be associated with the age division you are playing up in.
If my child has a birthday in the middle of the season, will they be moved up to the next age division immediately?
No. Juniors must finish the current series of tournaments in the same age division that they started the series. Your juniors age on June 30th will determine the age they participate at for the year.
Junior’s 9-10 are allowed to have a caddie. This may be a parent or any individual at least 18 years old. Caddies may rent a cart at their own expense to carry a players clubs, but the player may not ride in the cart at any time except when being shuttled between holes (to keep pace of play). All players must walk during the play of each hole.
For most tournaments, juniors 11 & older may not have a caddie and may either carry their own bags or use a pull cart. However, for some select events, caddies will be allowed for all age groups.
Yes. You must be a member to play on the RLJGT. Review the Membership Benefits.

Every RecruitLook Junior Golf Tour event is a 2-day tournament. 11-18 year old age groups play a 36-hole tournament, while the 9-10 year old age groups play a 18-hole tournament (9-holes each day).
Yes, a RecruitLook college scout will be at all events and your results will be sent to all college coaches. College coaches will be invited and made aware of all the RLJGT events.
If a player withdrawals from a tournament within 3 or more days of the event, his/her entry fee can be transferred and used toward another tournament. Withdrawals made in less than 3 days of the event are considered late and do not qualify for a fee transfer.
Send an email to the Tour Director to cancel from any RLJGT event. Most of our events have a 7 day cancellation policy where if you cancel within 7 days of the event no refund will be given because golf courses require payment in full this many days out. If you cancel outside of 7 days you will receive a full refund minus a $35 cancellation
No. Once the entry deadline has passed, entries will not be accepted. There may be a very rare occasion where the entry deadline would be extended by one or two days.
It means that you’ve registered for an event in which there are more entries than spots available, and you have been placed on an alternate/wait list.
If you are an alternate and you get into an event, you will be notified immediately by Tour staff via text or email. If you do not get into an event, you will be guaranteed priority entry into the next event that you sign up for.
Only extreme weather related conditions will delay or suspend play, including but not limited to the safety of the player or the condition of the golf course. Every attempt will be made to complete the Tournament in its entirety. Should inclement weather delay and/or postpone the first round of play, the round may be completed on any part of day one and resume and/or conclude on day two.
Discontinuation and resumption of play will be handled under USGA Rule 6-8. If play is delayed on day one, all players should remain on property of the host facility. Every effort will be made to resume play on day one. When play is resumed, competitors on the golf course will return to the spot that they left when play was stopped.
Players will be given an appropriate amount of time to prepare for play to begin. If all holes cannot be completed, at least 18 holes will be counted to determine the outcome. There are no refunds if weather should shorten the event.
Parents and spectators are allowed and encouraged to attend, but must remain on the cart paths at all times. Parents and spectators may NOT interact with players at any time, except to provide food or beverages.
Parents and spectators may rent carts at their own expense from the host course.
Parents spend thousands of dollars every year on their kid’s golf expenses. There is travel to events, the cost of events, the cost of a golf coach, the price of new clubs, and the cost of new golf attire and accessories. It adds up! But, what are you doing to make sure this all pays off in the form of a golf scholarship?
College coaches will look at the whole picture when evaluating a golfer: grades, handicap, character, but they really don’t mind what tour a golfer wins or scores well on as long as they are winning!
Tommy Canale, RecruitLook Scout, says, “The first thing a college coach ask me when talking about a recruit is ‘How many wins do they have, and how many top five finishes?’ ” “They aren’t concerned about any specific tour as long as the golfer is shooting good scores,” adds Canale.
Most high school golfers don’t know how to answer this question: What are you doing to make sure all your training and competitive events pay off?
“I spoke with at least 10 division one golf programs this past week about a few golf prospects. Each coach expressed their support of the RLJGT and how we will help bridge the gap between high school golfer and college golf coach,” said Canale.
Some golfers won’t play on specific events because they’re afraid it will hurt their rankings. We’ve done extensive research to figure out the rankings that a lot of companies use. The top finding are this:
1.) Majority of the rankings are determined by the score a golfer shoots, regardless of where the tournament is played and the competition of the field. A good score is a good score. Period.
2.) A player will not be dinged for playing on RLJGT if they are playing in at least 9 events that are a combination of AJGA, Golf Channel Tour, Toyota Tour Cup, and Future’s Champions. The ranking companies encourage golfers to go out and play in other tours (more tours only helps grow the sport); therefore, playing in anything over 9 events on the aforementioned tours will not affect their rankings while playing on the RLJGT.
