Jamaica to Host 2018 CAJGC

The Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships (CAJGC) is the premier golfing event for junior golfers in the Caribbean.

In 2018, the 31st staging of the event will be hosted by the Jamaica Golf Association at the Caymanas Golf and Country Club and the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel from July 2 – 7, 2018. This event will showcase the best junior golfers competing for the Hank James Team Trophy along with other individual prizes.

Jamaica hosted the CAJGC in 2009, and it was regarded as one of the best events for this tournament by participants.

The four day event caters to juniors from 8 Caribbean Countries (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Bahamas, Cayman, USVI, Barbados, and Jamaica). The age range for participation is from ages 11 – 18 and 75-100 players are expected to participate. We also estimate that approximately 150 accompanying persons – delegates, coaches and parents, are expected to travel with the juniors to the event.
