Started in 1953, the International Junior Masters (“IJM”) is a junior golf tournament for boys 14 to 18 years old. We are the oldest international junior invitational in North America.

Our golf tournament is unique in that it combines both medal play and match play into its tournament format.

Top caliber players from around the globe have competed in the tournament, making it a world-wide showcase of junior golf talent, creating a field at the highest level of competition.

We are proud of notable participants list, many of whom went on to have successful carers on the PGA Tour.

Regents
Exam
Conflict

This year the IJM Tournament has a conflict, for New York state students, with the Regents Chemistry examination on Thursday, June 25. If you have to take the test that day you would not be able to participate in the tournament.

There is, however, an alternative. The test is also offered in August.

Please discuss this with your school’s staff before submitting your IJM application.

If you have a test on Tuesday morning June 23 we can likely work that out with adjusted tee times, and there is a high likelihood you can take the tests here in East Aurora.

Again, please discuss this with your school’s staff.
