In 1993, the Kentucky Golf Association and the Kentucky PGA worked to form a statewide junior golf tour. They had a vision to provide high quality competition to junior golfers across the Commonwealth. Since its inception, this effort has reached thousands of young people and produced some of the top golfers in Kentucky. Many Kentucky PGA Junior Tour veterans are currently playing competitive golf at colleges and universities around the country. A few are even playing professionally, making a living playing a game we all love. Those players learned about the rules of golf and etiquette while fine tuning their golfing abilities during tournament play.
The Kentucky PGA Junior Tour and the Musselman-Kirchdorfer Junior Golf Tour have announced plans to merge beginning in 2018. The merger will combine the two leading junior golf tours in Kentucky over the past 25 years into the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour presented by Musselman-Kirchdorfer, and will present more than 80 days of competition for junior golfers across the state.

ADA Cart Request Form
The Kentucky PGA Junior Tour (KYPGA JT) will evaluate, on a case-by-case basis, any request to use a cart at a KYPGA JT tournament or sanctioned event due to a claimed disability. For the KYPGA JT to properly evaluate such requests, it is necessary to submit medical documentation setting forth the exact nature of the disability and how that disability prevents such player from walking during a stipulated round. In addition, players will have to submit information sufficient to enable the KYPGA JT to determine that providing a cart would not provide a player with an advantage over other players. Each person seeking to use a golf cart due to a disability under the ADA must complete and submit to the KYPGA JT the form entitled ADA Request for Cart.
