Raising Cane's Player of the Year & Invitational Tournaments 

Each participant in a Kelly Gibson Junior Golf Tour event is awarded points based on their performance. These points are accumulated throughout the summer and are used to award the Raising Cane's Player of the Year in each age division as well as help determine who is eligible to be invited to the Tour Championship and BC Cup Championship. All age divisions compete in these events.

Non-Motorized Carts & Distance Measuring Devices

Players are NOT allowed to use motorized carts or motorized push carts during their round. Caddies are not allowed. Players ARE allowed to use measuring devices provided they do not measure other conditions such as slope, wind speed or temperature.

  • Caddies are NOT allowed

  • Spectators may assist in searching for participants' lost golf balls

  • Spectators must keep carts on the path at all times

  • Positive reinforcement is encouraged, but any golf advice may NOT be given to participants

Ice-cold water bottles courtesy of Champagne Beverage Co. & Powerade courtesy of Coca-Cola will be provided on the course to participants. Lunches are provided to participants after their round is complete.


Junior Golf Scoreboard

Some of our players are interested in taking their game to the next level. Our partnership with the Junior Golf Scoreboard will allow our players to get recognized nationally for their play while competing in KGJGT events. We will be combining Week's 1 & 2 scores, Week's 3 & 4 scores, and Week's 5 & Tour Championship scores, for a total of three 36-hole events to receive national ranking opportunities. All participants competing in 18-hole tournaments are eligible and there must be at least five (5) common participants competing in both events.

Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust Mentorship Program

Participants in our Boys 7-10 & Girls 7-13 age division will be accompanied by a mentor for their 9-hole round. The role of the mentor is to assist their mentee with course management, etiquette, basic rules and pace of play. Mentors are juniors in high school or older who are eligible for our Scholarship Program. If you are a junior in high school or older and want to be a mentor, please reference your emails!


Scholarship Program 

Since 2010, the Kelly Gibson Foundation, along with our community partners, have awarded $784,300 in scholarships to 341 deserving young students. Scholarships are awarded based upon community service, interactions as a mentor, application essay, academics and financial need; not golfing ability. Participants who are juniors in high school through 5th year students in college as of fall 2023 are able to apply. Anyone who is eligible for a scholarship must compete in at least 3 of 5 KGJGT Monday events and mentor in at least 2 of 5 KGJGT Thursday events. Scholarships will be awarded at the Annual Awards Banquet after the conclusion of the 2024 KGJGT.

Annual Scholarship Banquet

The recipients of the Charlie Knox Sportsmanship Award, Raising Cane's Player of the Year Award, and the Dr. John & Helen Moore Distinguished Service Award will be recognized at this event. Kelly Gibson Foundation Scholarship Program recipients will be presented with certificates and take individual and group photos.
