The second annual Southern States Junior Classic (SSJC) will be contested at 3 outstanding Chattanooga, TN area golf courses on July 14-16, 2017. Our inaugural event in 2016 featured junior golfers who represented 9 states (TN, GA, NC, MS, AL, TX, KY, SC, & VA). There will be 4 boys and 4 girls age divisions for junior golfers ages 7 - 18. Each age division will play 3 competitive tournament rounds at 3 separate golf courses. Caddies are encouraged for all players in all age divisions. Junior Golf Scoreboard publishes the results of our event for junior golf ranking purposes. American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) recognizes our qualifying SSJC age division results for Performance Based Entry (PBE Stars). Hurricane Junior Golf Tour awards all age division champions with exemption into their national championship events. SSJC participants are awarded Tennessee Golf Association Player of the Year points. Aligned with our mission, all intention is to deliver an annual best-in-class event that builds confidence and develops character within participants.

We believe our event is compelling and will stand out among peers. First, the tournament format is unique. The opportunity to play 3 competitive rounds at 3 different venues is both challenging and appealing. Second, in the spirit of our value: Family First, caddies are allowed in all age divisions. A parent, relative, or close family friend has the opportunity to "step inside the ropes" and enjoy walking the fairways as a teammate of their junior golfer. These opportunities are rare in top level junior golf competitions, and we are confident that our SSJC caddie policy is a positive differentiator. Finally, we are laser focused on building memorable experiences. The Southern States Junior Classic is a first class event which strives to become an annual destination for aspiring junior golfers and their families for years to come.
