Round 1 Pairings (4/25/2021)

Next event: The Optimist Qualifier at the Holiday Golf Club in Panama City

We have seven age divisions which will each receive up to two qualifying spots to advance to play at the Doral Resort and Spa in Miami. The Optimist Club of the Beaches will provide scholarships for the first place qualifiers to pay for entry fees and other expenses at the Optimist International tournament. Qualifying is based on place of finish and qualifying scores. For more information, visit https://www.optimist.org/golf/golf-qualify5.cfm

Age Divisions:

Boys 16-18, Boys 14-15, Boys 12-13, Boys 10-11, Girls 15-18, Girls 13-14, Girls 10-12

*Golfers who are 9 years old as of July 18, 2021 may 'play up'.

The entry fee for the Optimist Qualifier includes green fees for 18 holes (all groups play 18), lunch and all awards.



Note: Our points have been updated for our first two events. A division must have three participants in order for its participants to receive points. Also, only our 18-hole groups receive points for standings.

The mission of the Emerald Coast Junior Golf Tour is to enable junior golfers to gain local tournament playing experience and allow them to become the best golfers they can be while competing for points and exemptions for larger tournaments. Above all, we hope our golfers grow to love the game while learning the many life lessons the game offers.


The Emerald Coast Junior Golf Tour offers events along the gulf coast in Pensacola, Destin, Panama City, Dothan (Alabama), Enterprise (Alabama) and other locations in Northwest Florida. 


We will be practicing certain social distancing procedures to protect our golfers during these events. Details will be shared at each event.
