The first tournament was organized by Harlingen, Texas attorney and resident Lee Wiley in 1982. The purpose of the tournament is to promote the sport of golf within our young people and to provide them with a local venue to test their competitive skills. The South Texas Junior Golf Classic is proud to be associated with the Southern Texas Section of the PGA of America. The event is open to the public. So, if you have a desire to watch what may be some future PGA or LPGA stars having a go at the Valley’s premier golf course, come on out!

The South Texas Junior Golf Classic Tournament has been moved to mid-July. The move was designed to lessen the conflicts with school graduations and other school related year-end activities so that more could attend and partake of the award ceremony following.
Gillman Auto Group continues its support of junior golf and is once again the Title Sponsor of the South Texas Junior Golf Classic. It is through their generous support and the contributions of other sponsors and volunteers that we have been able to continue the tournament for the past 24 years.
We hope to have a large turnout this year and invite those interested in seeing some of tomorrow’s future golf stars today, to come on out and enjoy.
