6th annual American Junior Golf Association’s

...The AJGA is one of the top junior golf organization’s in the country, and its alumni include some of the biggest names in golf, such as last weekend’s PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas, as well as Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Dustin Johnson, Paula Creamer, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel and Inbee Park.

"This tournament is an open tournament, so it’s a competitive field, this tournament is," Jessica Hall, a tournament director for the AJGA, said. "We go off PBE status, which is performance-based entries. These players, they play in our qualifiers, in our tournaments and they earn stars for how well they do, basically. They are playing for all these stars, and the more stars they achieve, the more tournaments they can try to gain entry into."

The AJGA holds 121 tournaments during the year across the country, mostly in the summer. Hall said the average player plays in about five tournaments per year. The Sugarloaf tournament is a popular stop on the AJGA because of the views and hospitality the course provides for the players and staff.
