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. Join us June 12-14, 2017 and refine your game with other talented young golfers by signing up online today!
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. We kick off our tournament on Sunday, June 11 at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course where all of our players can swap stories, enjoy dinner, check out some cool swag and practice their swings. They can also watch 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. Help us continue this Waco tradition for three days and endless fun!

Starburst is a great event, incredibly well managed given the number of players and courses required to organize it. The after round events are fun, extremely well run, and make the players feel special. The talent level of the field is among the best in the south and a great way to gauge where your junior golfer stands among the better players in Texas. Overall 4.5 stars.
