THANK YOU for Supporting the 21st Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic

For more than 20 years, Waco has been home to the Starburst Junior Golf Classic, a premier junior golf tournament held annually by the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce.

Each year, players ages 7-19 from across the country converge in the Heart of Texas for a competitive tournament taking place on multiple golf courses around the Greater Waco area with the “home” course located at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course. It is a family-oriented, two-day competitive tournament designed for both novice and expert junior golfers. The Starburst Junior Golf Classic is a part of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and a Performance Based Entry Process. As a result of the partnership, our top finishers in the 11 through 19 age divisions and Championship divisions will receive AJGA performance stars.

The tournament is run by knowledgeable and experienced staff and long-time volunteers who work hard to create a fun, competitive atmosphere. We’re proud of our players, many of whom have continued with professional golf careers, such as Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.

This Waco tradition continues June 17-18, 2019, and we’re looking forward to two days of fun at the 21st Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic!

It was fun to see the boys interact with other players from across the region. Loved the chip and putt course at Cottonwood as it provided the boys a safe place to compete and make new friends.
