The tour, known as the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour powered by Junior Golf Hub since 2019, hosts events for boys and girls ages 8-18 in 27 states and Canada. The partnership is designed to help junior golfers realize their dreams of playing golf in college by providing access to JGH’s online community, helping players and parents navigate the confusing journey to college golf, while connecting talent with college coaches.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with one of the highest quality junior golf tours in North America,” says Roger Knick, founder of the Junior Golf Hub. “The Hurricane Tour excels at providing its members with opportunities to achieve their dreams of playing golf in college, which is the reason JGH was created. Access to our platform, and cutting-edge Player Development Index, equips young people with all the tools necessary to reach their goals.”
At just $100 per year, all Hurricane members receive full access at a discounted rate (normally $129) to the platform which helps connect recruits with college golf coaches through tailored, searchable online profiles. Player pages present to coaches their athletic measurables such as verified tournament scores, swing speed, tournament schedules and academic information such as GPA, test scores and academic honors.
A membership to JGH, which also tracks a player’s growth and development as they move through their junior golf journey, is not only a beneficial tool for burgeoning young golfers, but it also hosts an invaluable suite of resources and education that supports parents throughout the complicated process of recruiting.
Outside of the A.I.-powered College Match, JGH has a “Find a College” function with filters that narrow down results based on the program’s scoring average, acceptable test scores, tuition, majors offered, size of enrollment and more. College golf hopefuls are instantly notified via JGH mobile app or desktop portal when a collegiate program starts following them.
To date, nearly 10,000 athletes have created a profile on JGH, while more than 1,000 members have gone on to play golf at an NCAA DI, DII, DIII or NAIA school. The current collegiate database consists of 2,300 men’s and women’s golf programs.

About Hurricane Junior Golf Tour
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) was founded in 2007 with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 8-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. The tour’s vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. With play open to both males and females, nearly every junior golfer is eligible to participate on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Currently the HJGT is the largest junior golf tour in the United States hosting more 2-day nationally ranked events than any other tour. Through Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s partnership with international hospitality company NEXUS, a division ambassador program was developed with Tiger Woods, Justin Timberlake, Justin Rose, Will Smith, Ernie Els and Bryson DeChambeau, who each represent a different division within the Tour. Each ambassador leads a small group of junior golfers while bringing a strong brand awareness to junior golf and inspire them to work hard toward achieving their goals.
