The American Junior Golf Association is pleased to announce the 2021 Accenture NW Arkansas Junior at Bella Vista Village, sponsored by Accenture. This 54-hole tournament will be held September 3-6 in Bella Vista, Arkansas, and is the second time Bella Vista Village will host an AJGA event. A qualifier for the event will take place at the course on September 2.
Accenture gives back locally in the communities where our people work and live, and we’re happy to sponsor this tournament which will showcase the beauty of Northwest Arkansas, one of the country’s best-kept secrets. With the AJGA, we are looking forward to welcoming the talented junior golfers who will compete in this year’s event.
The event is the third and final AJGA tournament in Arkansas in 2021 and highlights a great golf region with the Bella Vista Country Club consisting of five 18-hole golf courses and two 9-hole courses. The Highlands course will be a true test of golf, tipping out at just over 7,000 yards.
“We are excited to have Accenture on board with this event in Arkansas,” AJGA Chief Business Officer Jason Etzen said. “Their core values align with the AJGA’s mission and provide a great partnership that will impact junior golfers and the local community for several years.”
The event will bring 78 of the top male and female junior golfers from around the country to the Bella Vista area. AJGA Open tournaments make up the largest part of the AJGA schedule. All members may submit tournament applications to Open tournaments. All AJGA Open tournaments are filled using the AJGA’s Performance Based Entry system.
Every dollar that is raised in support of the event helps to offset tournament costs, as well as increase the tournaments contribution to local charities. Through the support of Accenture, the event will grow grassroots junior golf in the area as well as help provide opportunities through the AJGA’s Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant. The ACE Grant provides financial assistance to juniors who have the skill level but not the financial means to play a national junior golf schedule.
