THANK YOU for Supporting the 19th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic
For nearly 20 years, Waco has been home to the Starburst Junior Golf Classic. A premier junior golf tournament held annually by the Greater Waco Chamber, this tournament is trusted by hundreds of junior golfers each year from throughout the U.S. that compete for divisional championships for ages 7-18.
Not familiar with the Starburst Junior Golf Classic? No problem! We are a family-oriented, three-day competitive tournament designed for both the novice and expert junior golfer in mind. Players will converge on quality golf courses around the Greater Waco area during the tournament, with our “home” course located at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course. Additionally, an important aspect of the Starburst Junior Golf Classic is that we are a part of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Performance Based Entry process, enabling our Championship and 12 to 17 age division top finishers to receive AJGA performance stars.
Our tournament is run with knowledgeable and experienced staff, while also working hard to create a fun, competitive atmosphere. During the 19th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic, we kicked off our tournament on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course where players swapped stories, enjoyed dinner, checked out some cool swag before practicing their swings. They also watched 1,300 golf balls fall from the sky! (Make sure to visit our Schedule of Events page for details). We’re proud of our players, many of which have continued on with professional golf careers, such as Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.
We look forward to continuing this Waco tradition next year for three days and endless fun at our 20th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic!
