The Trusted Choice Big “I” Junior Classic is the second oldest national junior golfing tournament ranked only behind the USGA Junior Championship. Since the Big “I” Junior Classic was created in the late 1960s, junior golf – as well as the golfing scene overall – has boomed. The Big “I” Junior Classic has become one of the premier events on the junior golf circuit and is consistently ranked as one of the top tournaments by the juniors themselves.
The Big “I” Junior Classic is designed to foster good sportsmanship and healthy competition among junior golfers. These tournaments are sponsored by the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA), its affiliated state and local associations and a select group of property/casualty insurance companies.
