The Northern Junior Championship presented by The Golf Performance Center is a nationally ranked junior golf tournament that was created in order to provide the highest level of competition for top junior players.
The 36-hole stroke play event is contested over two days at New Haven Country Club in Hamden, Connecticut and is open to amateur boys and girls under the age of 19 who have not entered their first year of college. Our goal is to provide the same first class championship experience and red-carpet treatment that the best national events around the country offer. The 2017 event, our 16th annual, will be contested on August 1st - 3rd.
The tournament is run each year in memory of Stan Trojanowski, father of Cindy and Gary Trojanowski. A golfer himself, his personality and willingness to help others will never be forgotten in the people he met both on and off the golf course. The Northern Junior was established in 2002 in memory of his death on August 21st, 2001.
