*Disclaimer – Please be advised that our events should NOT be confused with any other Junior Tour referring to itself as The Highlander Junior Tour. We are no longer involved with any golf tour bearing that name. We apologize for any confusion caused by this and wish you to be aware that we, and they, both take a VERY different approach to Junior Golf Development. We do not want anyone to confuse both or believe we are in any way similar in what we offer. If you have questions and want to know the key differences we welcome the opportunity to discuss these points. Please email me personally at keithcmccoll@gmail.com

*IMPORTANT* Disclaimer: We wish make it very clear that while our own personal background(s) and golf industry experience were predominantly gained through working in the golf industry in St. Andrews, Scotland we do NOT have any association, nor are we in any way representing or enjoying any business relationship with, any other golf industry organization from, or based in St Andrews, Scotland including, but not limited to, The R&A (The Royal and Ancient Golf Club) or St Andrews Links Trust.

Fiona and I are both thankful and personally grateful to have enjoyed a long working association with both of these organizations in our time prior to our arrival in the USA and we hold these Iconic golf entities in the highest regard possible. We would never wish to, or expect to, in any way benefit from any suggestion to the contrary and we hope this disclaimer makes that abundantly clear to our own clients. If you require any further clarification on this point please email me personally at keithcmccoll@gmail.com

Welcome everyone to our brand-new look, a fresh new 2022 season and a commitment and promise from Fiona and I that it is our intention to make this season our best one yet!

The latest logo might be a little different to last year but we think it does a great job of reflecting the things that we do a little bit different from others and we think it captures well our own history in golf and the great game itself, first played in Scotland more than 600 years ago! 

For many we will always be THE Highlanders. The name originally came about as it reflects both our own personal birthplace and that of the game. Those of you who know us already will know we are fiercely proud of the fact that our ancient game began in Scotland almost 600 years ago. We are also extremely proud to now call Florida and the USA home and we think there really is no better place to be living and working, with our junior golfers, to help the future of our great game to thrive.

Over the last couple of years, as the original Highlander Junior Tour, we are pleased to recognize that we’ve managed to gain a bit of a reputation in junior golf for being a little different. 

We hope, if you’ve had the chance to play in any of our major championship events, that you enjoyed the unique atmosphere created by our award-winning bagpiper who plays as each of our major championship attending competitors completes the final hole of play. As you will see from our new logo above we have clad our bagpiper in the deep red Claret and Yellow Tartan of the ancient Stewart Clan who originate from the Highlands of Scotland . This is Fiona’s family Clan and we are pleased to recognize it in our new logo.

Bagpipes and golf are an ancient and loved combination by many and our new branding now reflects this fact.

While we do of course hope that you like the logo we’ve come up with, our 2022 season, is really only about ONE thing. Junior Golf, and providing you, once again, with the very best tournament opportunities at great and supportive venues that will allow you to challenge yourself as a young golfer and develop into the player you would hope to be. Some of those venues will be regular existing ones from 2021 but we are already working hard to ensure we can bring you lots of new venues to play in the year ahead!

Some things will be as before. All of our single day 18-hole events will continue to attract ranking points from GJGR (Global Junior Golf Rankings) and our 36-hole events will attract ranking points from both GJGR and JGS (Junior Golf Scoreboard). There will be some changes made to our operation this year BUT rest assured though we are not planning on changing the things that work well, only improving those tournament day things that we think need improved and freshened up!

Over the last two years we’ve made some great friends and we’ve enjoyed watching some incredible junior golf with you and your junior players. We have SO many great memories and we are very, very proud of each and every young player who shows immense character and spirit to compete in what is arguably THE toughest sport of them all!

We do hope you will join us once again during 2022 and allow The Claret Junior Tour to play our part in your junior players development as each of them takes their next step on their personal golfing journey.

We are open 24/7 here for player registrations. Please check back often and save the website link we will send you as we add to this list over the next few weeks. Thank you for your support.

Keith and Fiona McColl

A SPECIAL EVENT HOSTED BY A VERY SPECIAL SUPPORTER OF JUNIOR GOLF IN FLORIDA – INTRODUCING COACH GRUMPY!

In late 2019 I was first introduced to Greg Curtis and it’s fair to say his reputation was known to me some time before we met!

The Villages in Central Florida, our home base, is known to many as the USA’s largest 55+ and retirement community. It’s foundations, and it’s seemingly endless popularity, is heavily built around the sport of GOLF.

Today The Villages boasts no fewer than 13 Championship Golf Courses, 42 Executive Golf Courses and no less than 711 individual holes of wonderfully maintained GOLF!!! There really is no other place on earth that can compare with the abundance of facilities offered for golfers of all ages in The Villages!

This was no doubt a factor when keen golfers like Greg and his wonderful wife Leona upped sticks from Maine many years back and settled in this particular part of the Sunshine State! Nothing new in that you might say however what has followed since then for Greg is the reason he’s someone we respect hugely, and someone we are proud to say has become a very close friend of the Claret Junior Tour, and of Fiona and I personally.

An ex-schoolteacher, with a huge heart and a passion for helping kids of all ages to be the best they can be,  Greg has worked tirelessly in our community for a number of years by introducing them to the sport we all love. Like us, he firmly believes kids with golf in their lives can lead them to, not only a lifetime of exercise and sport, but also a great pathway to teach them some great life habits too, and despite the fact that many of a similar age are sitting at home with their feet up, he’s NEVER once tired of getting out into our community to spread the word to new young golfers and support those kids he introduced to the game so many years ago!

On that point, whether it’s been through our local schools, the Villages Junior Academy or numerous other youth-based golf programs I cannot even begin to imagine how many young players have either been introduced to golf, or influenced by his passion for junior golf over the years! His knowledge of our game is vast and his ability to coach the best out of kids, especially when they may be at a low point in confidence, is legendary!

I hope that many of you reading this recognize him in these words? Perhaps he was instrumental in introducing YOUR young golfer to the game or influencing them to participate or maybe he’s just been that supportive guy whose always been on the sidelines at school golf, or during a competition, who’s always willing to give a kind word or applaud a good shot?

Greg Curtis has fully earned the respect he now enjoys from of all of us. Whether you are a young player, a parent, a teaching professional or a golf administrator, we ALL owe him a debt of thanks for what he has given to our kids and to our game!

So what about that legendary “handle” that he’s acquired over the years? Before I met him I have to be honest and say that I was somewhat intrigued by that “Coach Grumpy” name he had acquired!

I’m happy to report that I not only know the story behind the name but now that I know the man himself I think it fits perfectly…if you think it’s derogatory in any way you ARE way off the mark! It suits him perfectly! It’s playful in nature and it really reflects the fact that he expects the very best from our youth! From their behavior to the character they display on and off the golf course, he’s a man of high standards and moral values, fall short of those and watch him become “Coach Grumpy” fast!

And incidentally he doesn’t suffer fools gladly either, try to pull a fast one on “Coach Grumpy” or feed him a line and he will wastes no time in telling you what he thinks! He may be slightly advancing in years but he’s still as sharp as a tack!

Over the last 3 years, and more especially in the last six months, he has become a trusted advisor and a hugely valued source of advice and wise words. I’d go as far as to say if it were not for the guidance of Coach Grumpy at times The Claret Junior Tour may not have been in existence today! He may choose not to believe that, because that’s the man he is, but it’s a fact and Fiona and I can never thank him enough for his level headed opinions and wise counsel!

So, what’s all that got to do with an upcoming golf tournament at Eagle Ridge GC….well the fact is it’s HIS tournament, and not ours! While it may say The Claret Junior Tour on the label this one is very much Coach Grumpy’s, so much so that when it takes place, Fiona and I won’t even be there!  We will be in Scotland enjoying a family vacation home, our first visit back since 2018!

When Greg suggested that, in our absence, he’d like to run this one locally we immediately said YES! There isn’t anyone else we would have said yes to!

We think it will be fun for him and we hope it will be fun for you all too, and for many of you who know him well, especially those where he has had a direct influence on your junior golfer’s journey, you may see it as an opportunity to share in what will hopefully be a memorable day for Greg, and an event that can become a regular fixture for us too! On the day, Greg will be ably assisted by a couple of friendly faces you may recognize too…after all we DO want him to have time to enjoy the tournament with you all so we can’t have him working too hard now, can we?

We hope as many of you as possible will show your support of our very special friend by attending this junior golf event.

The Inaugural “Coach Grumpy” Junior Championship will take place over 18 holes at Eagle Ridge GC on Saturday July 2nd with tee times from 12.30pm. There will be a very special trophy for the overall lowest scorer and exclusive, for this special one-off occasion, medals for flight winners. The tournament will be ranked by GJGR and Registration is open now by clicking on the link HERE   and scrolling down to the event.

The Venue: We are always excited to return to our long standing “home venue” at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Summerfield. Great practice facilities, good greens and a challenging course, that’s always well maintained, means we usually see some good scores returned by our players. Head Professional Dale Smauder and his professional team have always shown great commitment to the development of Junior Golf in our community and a great welcome to everyone and, in turn, we really enjoy playing there. We try to return here monthly and always keep things fresh by playing different 2 x 9 hole layouts each time.

The crowning achievement of Red Tail is the spectacular 18-hole golf course. Players of all abilities will love the course which was designed by famed golf course architect Dave Harman. Play spans 7,152 yards, creating a par 72 links-style course. There’s also a 10-acre practice facility for golfers to improve their game, along with two putting greens.

Harbor Hills was last year’s host venue for the PGA Tour (LatinoAmerica) LOCALiQ competition where 144 professionals battled it out for a place in the final season event in The Bahamas. This year Harbor Hills have also hosted two FSGA Junior event (Florida Junior Tour – FJT) and we expect this great venue will become a regular for FJT as well as our own junior tour.

This event, ranked by GJGR, will give juniors of all ages and abilities an opportunity to test yourself in challenging competition play over this great championship layout.

Tom Leimberger, Krista and the team at HH work extremely hard to support junior golf in our community and they always provide a fine welcome to our Tour. Harbor Hills is deceptively challenging and it always proves tough for most of the field to post their lowest numbers. Lots of elevation changes and usually a firm breeze contribute to that!

Harbor Hills has provided us with quite a few great moments, fine individual performances and some wonderfully competitive junior golf. You really don’t want to miss out on this one and we advise you register as early as you can!
