For more than 35 years, the Junior America’s Cup has brought together an elite international field of 17 teams representing 12 western states, 2 Canadian Provinces and Mexico competing in a team format.
Team results are based on the lowest three gross scores of the four team members. Players also compete for low individual medalist honors.
Since 1969, the Hogan Cup 36-hole team matches have pit the best junior golfers from the Western United States and Canada against each other in a 4-man team format with the three lowest scores each day determining the team total.
Medals are awarded to the top three teams as well as the top three individuals in the field.
The Mary Cave Cup was established in 2004 to offer junior girls a tournament similar to the Eddie Hogan Cup. The event is named in honor of Mary Cave who was a dedicated volunteer of the SDJGA for almost 50 years. The tournament is a 36 hole, four-ball event with trophies being awarded to the top 2 teams.
The Euro Junior Golf Cup was developed in 1998 and is conducted on courses around the home of golf in St. Andrews, Scotland each year. Popular among juniors across North America and Scotland, the Euro Junior Golf Cup provides junior golfers with an opportunity to re-visit golf’s history and maybe make some of their own. Three countries participate each year – Canada, (Canadian Junior Golf Association), the United States (San Diego Junior Golf Association), and Scotland (Fife Golf Union). The tournament takes on a unique format with the three teams competing in singles matches over three days to determine a winner for the John Clark Trophy.
