Euro Junior Cup Team Championship
About the Championship
Formerly known as the World Junior Golf Cup, the Euro Junior Golf Cup was created in 1998 by the Canadian Junior Golf Association. In its first years, the Euro Cup was a competition between the United States and Canada. Competition was held in St. Andrews, Scotland and played on the New Course and the Jubilee Courses. Both of these courses were part of the St. Andrews Trust.
As time past, Scotland was invited into the competition. With Scotland involved, the event was then conducted on some of historic courses around the home of golf in St. Andrews, Scotland each August.
The Euro Junior Golf Cup provides junior golfers with an opportunity to re-visit golf's history.
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.
