Some of the world’s top youth golfers will bring their talents to York, Pennsylvania, as the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau will host the American Junior Golf Association Junior All-Star.
The tournament, which includes 51 boys and 27 girls between the ages of 12 and 15 — some traveling internationally and some traveling across the United States — takes place April 27-29, at Out Door Country Club in Manchester Township. The event will bring an estimated $155,232 in increased economic impact to the county.
The Country Inn and Suites by Carlson York is serving as the host hotel. The York Indoor Golf & Training Center will also be available to players and their families during their stay.
During the Junior All-Star, TaylorMade-Adidas Golf Live Scoring will be available at the tournament website. On social media, the hashtags #RoadToReynolds and #JASYork will be used.
