Welcome to the Winternational Junior Series at Pinehurst
Dear Junior Golfer,
We invite you to become a member of the TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL WINTERNATIONAL JUNIOR SERIES AT PINEHURST. This tournament series consists of eight 36 hole stroke play events from November through March. All events are played at the historic Pinehurst Country Club and our schedule includes six of the resort courses including the famed number 2 course which has hosted five US OPENs in the past 15 years and has been selected to host the 2024 U.S. Open. Please take a moment to view our complete schedule and descriptions of the courses we'll play.
Our fee structure is more affordable than ever before. The membership fee is $100 and makes you eligible for all eight events. There are no qualifiers or any waiting list; you are guaranteed entry into any or all events.
If your primary residence is within one hundred miles of Pinehurst you may participate without staying at the resort hotel. If this is not the case, a rate of $90.00 per night, per person (double occupancy), which includes breakfast, tax and gratuity will be offered. This rate is offered to both contestants, families and their guests. Learn more on our accomodations page.
Our entry fee, per event will be $160.00 (when competing on the number 2 course the entry fee will be $250.00).
Past participants, over 1,800 high school boys and girls, have gone on to compete on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, and the Duramed Tour. Series alums Jason Dufner, Webb Simpson, Johnson Wagner, and Jason Kokrak have combined to win over 20 professional tournaments, including two majors (the 2012 US Open for Webb and the 2013 PGA Championship for Jason) and have climbed into the top in the world rankings. Over 50% of our members have participated at the collegiate level. Forty states and six foreign countries have been represented in our 14 year history. Our alums include Webb Simpson (2012 US Open Champion), Johnson Wagner (PGA Tour winner), Jason Dufner (PGA Tour winner), Dustin Johnson (11 time PGA Tour winner, 2016 US Open Champion, #3 ranked player in world rankings) and Jason Kokrak (Nationwide Tour Multiple Champion).
The eight events will be managed by professional tournament directors with an emphasis on servicing our contestants. Our starters, rules officials and scoreboard operators are all well versed in their fields. Results of each event are sent to media outlets which include Golf World, Golfweek, and a multitude of golf coaches.
A season long point race includes members’ four best finishes and will determine our player of the year awards and the All American team selections.
We are very much looking forward to getting to know each of you as you continue to develop your golf games.

What They're Saying about the Winternationals
PGA Tour Member; Winner of the 2008 Shell Houston Open; Winternational member in 2000
“I never won an event at Pinehurst but the years I played were great for me because I learned so much about myself as a competitor. I never gave up, never quit, and through the season gained so much confidence. I truly love Pinehurst and believe the Winternationals were a cornerstone to the success I am experiencing now.”
