THANK YOU for Supporting the 20th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic

For 20 years, Waco has been home to the Starburst Junior Golf Classic. Held annually by the Greater Waco Chamber, this premier junior golf tournament has is trusted by hundreds of golfers from throughout the U.S., all of which compete for divisional championships ages 7-18.

Not familiar with the Starburst Junior Golf Classic? No problem! Each year, players will converge in the Heart of Texas for a competitive tournament spanning golf courses around the Greater Waco area; with our “home” course located at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course. We are a family-oriented, three-day competitive tournament designed for both the novice and expert junior golfer. The Starburst Junior Golf Classic is a part of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and a Performance Based Entry Process. In result of the partnership, our top finishers in the 12 through 17 age and Championship divisions will receive AJGA performance stars.

Our tournament continues to be run by knowledgeable and experienced staff and long-time volunteers, who work hard to create a fun, competitive atmosphere. We kicked off our 19th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at Cottonwood Golf Course where players swapped stories, enjoyed dinner and checked out some cool swag before practicing their swings. They also watched 1,300 golf balls fall from the sky! We’re proud of our players, many of which have continued with professional golf careers, such as Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.

We look forward to continuing this Waco tradition, June 11-13, 2018  We are looking forward to three days and endless fun at our 20th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic!
