AJGA Thunderbird International Junior
The Thunderbird International Jr has traditionally been held at the Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is the only invitational to boast an “international” identity providing a high stakes and diverse field. While it is not uncommon to compete against juniors from around the globe, Thunderbird is unique in it’s effort to bring together worldwide competitors.
