Your Junior Golf Tour has made a tremendous impact on junior golfers in our area. I listen to kids “talkin’ it up about your tour. It is first class and we appreciate, so much, what you do during your events. The kids thank you too. We are proud to be on your schedule. Jerry Breaux Banbury Golf Club
Just wanted to let you know that Grahm is playing for Utah State. He is currently their number one player. Grahm tied for the 2009 RMJGT championship and lost in the play-off. He played two years at Spokane Community College under Scott Kramer. He took 2nd in the NWAAC championship his last year there. His win at your RMJGT Thanksgiving Point Tournament was a catalyst for his successful golf career. Thank you for continuing promotion of junior golf.

THE FUTURE OF GOLF PLAYS HERE!
“I really enjoyed playing in the TOC this year. I played solid golf and was really happy with my results. It was also great to be able to compete in a tournament over the winter months.”
RMJGT note: Due to a shoulder injury, Nathaniel was not able to participate in our Tournament of champions this year but he had this to say:
“I didn’t get to play but the rmjgt is a great tour and I wish I could have played, it was
a great course and i just wanna say thank you for this tour, without it I don’t
think I would be able to play college golf because I don’t know if he would have
found me otherwise.”
and professional. I enjoy playing with the older girls. Playing with older
girls helps to challenged me to bring my “A” game so I can compete at a higher
level. New Mexico’s weather did not allow me to practice or play golf for four
weeks, and I would have loved to have had an opportunity to have a practice
round on Saturday. I missed having an official social get together (like last
year), giving me a chance to make new friends and see some old friends for the
last time before they go to college (For example, I loved playing in the Ryder
Cup with Taylor Buck, she’s awesome). Overall, I thought the Tournament of
Champions was an excellent experience.
forward to the lower cost of your tournaments so we can possibly play more tournaments.”
I enjoyed playing in RMJGT’s Tournament of Champions. As always the level of competition as well as the organization of the tournment were outstanding. The environment was meant for all junior golfers that wanted to compete with some of the best golfers in the Western region. Everyone who is a part of RMJGT were friendly and helpful, and I would especially like to thank Tracy Cologne and Mr. Adolfson who both went out of their way to make it a great experience. I have enjoyed yet another year in this tour and would like to thank RMJGT for a great season.
Thanks Tracy we really like RMJGT because you do allow caddies. There’s no other sport I can think of that forces kids to go out a play a solitary game with no companionship or assistance.
Also, rangefinders are very important for junior golfers since they are growing and their swings are constantly evolving it’s important for them to have the feedback that rangefinders provide.
Keep up the good work.
My wife and I were talking last night about RMJGT in general, and we had one common thought, how well put together the tournaments and organization is alongside of great people and most of all a fun environment. Brayden really enjoys playing in RMJGT’s and we just wanted to say thank you as the leader for such a good organization for juniors. Brayden has been playing tournament golf since the age of 5, we have played in quite a few different tournaments run by quite a few different organizations and we have to say that we have really enjoyed RMJGT.
We also commented how you interact with the kids, our perception is that you really enjoy what you do and we know that there is some strenuous work that goes on behind the scenes and at the tournaments to make all of this possible and we just wanted to say thank you for making it possible.
To Everyone at CGSA,
Thank you so much for all of your help and communication during the college recruiting process. We could not have done it with out you!! It is such a vast undertaking and you gave us a great template and a direction to go. Throughout the process the more we did the more you were able to help. In the end, our son had numerous options and he was able to make the best golf and college decision for him. I hope everyone that has aspirations of playing college golf takes advantage of your wonderful service.
“Playing for the Rocky Mountain Junior Golf tour has been a great experience for me. It has provided me a venue to grow as a golfer, but more importantly as a person. I decided the summer before my junior year of high school that I wanted to play college golf, but knew that achieving that goal would require a lot of improvement in my golf game. I have played in many RMJGT tournaments in the past two years, and there is no question that my game has improved. Furthermore those tournaments allowed college coaches to watch me play, specifically the University of Colorado Colorado Springs Women’s coach. This past November I signed to play golf at UCCS, and it was because of the Rocky Mountain tour that my dream became a reality”
As the head golf coach at Colorado School of Mines I spend countless hours recruiting different junior events. I can honestly say RMJGT is one of the most efficient, and well-run golf tours in the country! For golfers looking to play at the next level I would highly recommend them.”
CGSA is a great resource while going through the recruiting process. Without Tracy and Vince I would not be playing golf at the college level. They make a huge effort to get college coaches to tournaments, and they communicate with coaches about you as a player. Tracy did just that for me while I was working on getting recruited to play at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. In addition, CGSA provides a great website for coaches to look at your stats, and other information that you share about yourself. There is no question in my mind that CGSA is the tool to use while working to get a golf scholarship.
Let me tell you how Rocky Mountain Junior Golf Tour and the CGSA prepared me to play collegiate golf. First and foremost was the experience of playing in the 36 hole tournaments that we’re run like and felt like professional tournaments. Secondly, the professionalism and warmth of the Cologne Family and their concern for the player yet ability to hold you accountable to teach you the lessons now rather than later in your career. The courses they have for you to play are outstanding,challenging and test you and your abilities. The CGSA is invaluable in getting you out there and connecting with colleges and coaches. The player profile is viewed by many coaches and you can update it actively. I always have been confident in my ability to play at the college but without the RMJGT and CGSA and the Cologne family I am not sure if it would have happened. I have verbally committed to Southern Arkansas University and Coach James Robertson for the fall of 2015. Much of the thanks go to my family in supporting me over the years but Tracy,Vince and family have my endless appreciation in helping take my game to the next level.
Just wanted to give you a quick update. The last two months have been a whirlwind. Clare has been on several visits to different Universities and just recently got back from New York—University at Albany. She actually liked all the universities that she visited but it came down to making a decision between Montana State and Portland State. After some thought and deliberation she decided to commit to Montana State and will be signing her letter of intent on November 14th!!—YEA. The overall process was a little overwhelming, so it was nice to see Clare finally just relax and smile during and after her conversation with coach Bayse.
So, that is the latest. I also wanted to thank you for always taking time to talk with me while at the tournaments and thank you for your interest in and help with Clare. Your insight has been very helpful and I appreciate your time. Look forward to seeing you in Phoenix.

Tracy! Thanks for doing an AWESOME job in promoting junior golf. We know it is not about the money cause it really takes a lot of dedication and passion for anyone to do what you & your family does for all the junior golfers. You are giving them the opportunity and platform to show case their talent. Thank you! We are blessed to make your acquaintance.

Griffin Barela committed to play golf for the University of Wisconsin. This would not have been possible if not for the RMJGT. As you know he was a late starter to golf, beginning play as he entered 8th grade. RMJGT provided a place for him to compete with high level players on wonderful golf courses while allowing him to grow his game. We associate much of his passion for the sport to his early days competing on this tour and are truly grateful that it was available to him. Please keep up the good work!
