This series of seven events held on Par 3 courses around the county is part of Hertfordshire Golf’s ‘junior development’ pathway. We offer a perfect opportunity for young golfers to develop their skills and playing experiences whilst making new friends with likeminded players on golf courses’ relevant to their size, strength and ability. 


The iTour was created as the second step on Hertfordshire Golf’s junior development pathway to form a link for players moving from the par 3 ‘Futures Tour’ to the more challenging full-size course. The iTour is for players without an official Handicap Index (HI) or who have a high HI and wish to improve their skills, gain confidence and obtain more playing experiences. 

Players with a HI of 20 or below should not be entering iTour events but focus on ‘Junior Opens’ and the ‘Junior Order Of Merit Award’ of which there are many on offer around the county over the duration of the season, details of these can be found here:

The dates and venues for the 2024 iTour series are:

A ‘Presentation Day’ event will be held at the end of season to congratulate and present the Trophies won over the season. As Always, we will keep a record of how you are progressing throughout the year which you can share with your home and academy coaches. We will help you gain confidence playing on a full-size course, meet like-minded people and set you well on your way to gaining that all important first official Handicap Index.

Good luck on the iTour in 2024, we look forward to watching you play and helping you achieve your seasons goals.

Best wishes as always,

The competition will be 9 holes stroke play Medal format.


  • Air shots do not count
  • There will be a maximum of 8 shots per hole.
  • Once a player has played their 8th shot the ball MUST be picked up and a score of 8* will count for that hole
  • A 9 will be recorded at the scorer’s desk to be fair to the players whose ball finishes in the hole on their 8th shot.


  • After 3 failed attempts to get out of a bunker, the competitor may, without penalty, drop their ball to the side of the bunker, no nearer the hole; however the 3 failed attempts will still count.
  • There will be no penalty strokes if a club is grounded whilst playing a bunker shot.


A ball in thick rough must be dropped out as close as possible to the point where it entered the rough, taking complete relief and no nearer the hole, with a penalty of one shot

Boundary of the Course:

If a players ball finishes beyond the boundary of the course the player must drop a ball at the point the original ball crossed the course boundary with a penalty of one shot – we do not intend to penalise a player shot and distance as in the full playing rules
