College players ages 18-24, as defined by the USGA and/or the NCAA.

If the eligible graduating high school senior has already paid the current seasons Tour Membership and wishes to play in the Collegiate Division, the WTJCT will issue that membership fee as a credit to be applied to any Collegiate Division event.

What It Is:
The owners and staff of the WTJCT understand how it can be difficult for college age players to find affordable competition during the summer months. We are providing an avenue for players to come out and compete in single & two day events to keep sharp in the off season. The WTJCT College Divisions will be competing for gift cards/certificates. The divisions will be added on to our normal WTJCT schedule. This means you will be at the same venue and event as the rest of our junior players, but not competing with them.
Each collegiate division will be competing for gift cards/certificates. This will be based on a scale depending on the number of participants. The scale is mentioned below:
3-5 Players: Winner Take All
6-8 Players: 1st & 2nd Awarded (60%, 40%)
9+ Players: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Awarded (50%, 30%, 20%)
Season End Points Winner:
College division players will earn points for each event they compete in. The final points winner at the end of the summer collegiate events will win a $200 gift card!*
*Point leader must have played in at least 2 collegiate events for the current season
There will be no membership for the Collegiate Division. Players will earn points and play each event for gift cards/certificates.

Previous Tour Players:
If you have played on the WTJCT previously, you may use the same login information to register for tournaments.
If you have not played with the WTJCT in the past, you will click on the "Instructions" Tab at the top of the website to sign up for a free account. You will have to register as a "parent" then add yourself as a "player". Once you have created your player, you can go to the "Tour" tab at the top and click on Tournaments. From there you may select the events you wish to sign up for.
There will be NO walk-ups for the Collegiate Division at any event. Registration for all Collegiate Division events will cut off 48 hours before the event, no exceptions. Players may pay online or pay at the event.
In order to accommodate juniors and college players at our events, the cut off for the Collegiate Division will be a max of 20 players total. Once the max has been reached, any players who register after capacity will go on a wait list. It will be the Tournament Directors decision to dictate how many spots may or may not be opened up for additional Collegiate Division players depending on the size of the total field for that venue.
