Any player, male or female, ages 14-19* years old as of the day following the last day of the tournament may apply for player registration on this site.  For 2024, the date cutoff the selection committee will consider for the player pool will be May 13, 2024. 

Each player wanting to be considered for formal invitation to the St Louis Junior Invitational must register as a player first (as a petitioning player seeking admission into the championship before receiving registration approval).  

Each player must have a unique e-mail and password when registering as a player.   

Once application for registration as a player has been made, an email confirmation will be sent to the player confirming receipt the player registration request has been made.  

*Players 19 years old must have recently graduated from high school to be considered.



Any player can register on the tournament site as a player, but only approved players that have received personal invitations from the tournament committee can register for the championship.  Cost to enter the championship in 2024 will be $200.00 per player and will include 36 holes of championship golf, the Wednesday practice round, water and Gatorade on the course.  Registration and payment need to be processed through the tournament site.  No checks will be accepted.  Payment by PayPal or by credit card are accepted. 

The opening of registration for the St Louis Junior Invitational is noted on the home page of the website.

Limited number of players will be invited to participate.  This is an invitational event.   

There is an opportunity to register and be placed on the wait-list for invited players.  A certain number of invitations will be issued for "wait-list" players.  For those players receiving a "wait-list" invitation, they will need to register for the event to confirm acceptance, and will formally be placed on the official wait-list.  Any players that register as a "wait list" player, but does not gain admission into the championship, will receive a FULL refund for their tournament application fee.   

Final admittance for each event is only confirmed when the player's name is noted on the tee time sheet for the specific event.  Because of the large number of players submitting applications to play in the championship, only a limited number of players will be accepted for the championship.
