Here's a small sample of the 1000's of testimonials received from junior players, parents and affiliated organizations about the MJT and it's programs (click on the link at the end to read many more)....
Very much appreciated everything MJT did for our boys as junior golfers. It's a fantastic program. T.K., SK
It’s been over 6 years since my son played in the MJT - to anyone who has not had the pleasure of experiencing one of the most positive experiences that a young person can enjoy in the summer, this is it! These folks are the cream of the crop in helping and encouraging our youth in development of not only the game of golf but in life! I miss my days following the tour and enjoying all the special people involved! I would encourage you all to check these folks out! ....K.S./MB
We wanted to share with you (Trent) and the MJT family that S. has officially signed and been accepted to school at Park University, in Gilbert, Arizona. It's an NAIA school and she can't wait to start her Business Administration course in Human Resources.
Thank you again for your continued support in the game of golf (and life!) for our children. Our kids have enjoyed and continue to enjoy some life experiences that they would not of been given without the game of golf in their lives. We are blessed and count you amongst our blessings.....
Thanks again for all the great tournaments in 2019 and all your efforts. P. (and I) had an absolute blast in Florida, that is all he has been talking about and how he wants to qualify for Phoenix next year. We could not stay for the awards as we flew out that afternoon so we did not get a chance to say thanks, so here it is!
Have a great winter and see you in 2020 in Lethbridge. T.R./AB
First off, I want to congratulate you and your team on an amazing week at Reunion! The time and effort that went into delivering the event did not go unnoticed. From Max and my perspectives, the event was top-notch! M.R./SK
MJT does a wonderful job giving our kids (especially in Winnipeg’s short summer season) the opportunities to play the wonderful game of golf! S.D/MB

I wanted to send a big thank you to you gentlemen and to MJT for all the support, guidance and encouragement that Owen received from you all over the past 5 years. Every year that Owen competed in the MJT, he grew his love and passion for the game of golf and was provided with many opportunities to compete at the highest level. I appreciate all your help with all my emails and questions throughout the years! All the time Owen has put into his golf game is now starting to pay off as he started classes at Minot State University this week, as a member of their Men's Golf Team. His experiences in MJT tournaments and the two Nationals that he attended were invaluable. So thank you once again. Owen is proud to say he is an MJT Alumni. Sincerely, J.G/MB
Thank you so much for the scholarship! I am honoured and humbled to receive this! R.W / NS
Louis, Though it was a great day...it’s still sad, as it marks the end of the MJT tour in Atlantic. I cannot thank you and your team enough for their efforts. I watch you interact with every parent and player. Everyone is greeted with a handshake, a smile and sincerity. The respect for each individual and your positive attitude is INFECTIOUS and is evident on the course and after each round. I have never seen such a well-rounded, polite, group of young men and women, enjoying the game...as I do during an MJT event and it shows in the smile on each kid I capture on film. It is also evident in the level of participation level in your tournaments, compared to the other tour in Atlantic. I hope you have a fabulous fall, and I hope to have the pleasure of bumping into you soon. Cheers, J.I./NS
Thank you very much for the scholarship award! I am very grateful to have received this scholarship to help me continue playing golf while getting an education. S.C / NS
I want to sincerely thank the MJT for the scholarship. The MJT tour has helped me develop as a golfer and a person. The MJT tour has provided me with amazing opportunities and I look forward to playing events in the future. J.N / SK
I am very honoured to receive this scholarship. I have greatly enjoyed my time playing with the MJT and the people I have met along the way. The tour has helped me improve my golf game and build as a person. I am especially touched that I have received this first time award in honour of fellow MJT member, Jacob Lugli, whose passing has truly impacted all of us. – E.S / MB
Hi Russ,my son played in the MJT this year and congrats to you and your staff. Coming from Australia we weren’t sure they had a program like this, good job mate and all the best for the future. I would highly recommend any golfers for the MJT. – L.M / MB
Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! The instructors were fun and patient. The event was very well organized at a beautiful location. My children had so much fun! Thank you Nisku Ford and the Maple Leaf Junior Tour! Bonnie, AB
Hello, First of all I want to let you know how great it was for my son to participate in the Ontario MJT. Every event he played in was fantastic and we can’t say enough of how wonderful Dave Smallwood and his team have been. Thank You, K.D/ON
Sam & Sophie attended the golf clinic today, & wanted me to say thank you as they really enjoyed it. They valued the instruction, my son has had a few lessons, but it was my daughters first time picking up a club. She is now hooked. It was very well run & we look forward to attending another clinic. Thank you, G.C/BC
Hi Trent and Chris, Thank you very much for selecting me to be a part of the trip in Sweden. I had a great time and learned lots that I hope to apply to my game in the near future. Thanks , A.G./ON
Good day Trent, Thank you to everyone at MJT for another great golfing season. Regards, L.Q./BC
Looking forward to qualifying for next year's event. Really enjoyed our year with MJT, really appreciate everything that you all do. Best regards, T.R./MB
Good Afternoon, I wanted to provide some feedback on the Jr. Golf clinic from last night. My 8 year old son very much enjoyed his experience at the clinic. He has played some golf over the past few years, but was able to learn much from the clinic. The instructors were patient and used language and analogies that worked with young children. The event was well organized and my son really appreciated the Ford hat and hot dog and pop. Redtail Landing is an excellent venue and I would definitely attend a clinic with my children there again. Thank you, B.L./AB
Hello, We were browsing through the MJT Alumni page - Charles played MJT events for 4 years, moving on to play NCAA D1 at University of Texas at El Paso. Charles is now Assistant Men's Golf Coach and is working on his MBA. MJT was a big part of his junior development. Thanks, C.C./ON
Hi Chris, My kids had a great morning at the Ford Junior Golf Clinic! Instructors were experienced, organized and professional. Thanks for putting this event together, super introduction to the sport. We will be back. B.M./BC
Trent, Both Jeff and his wife Carrie put their heart and soul into Junior golf. Alex is fortunate to have Jeff as his coach as well. He truly is amazing with the kids and the level of trust they have in him is amazing. Regardless, I wanted to pass along my thoughts, and the thoughts of many I speak with in the golf community, of how appreciative we are for the MJT program and specifically Jeff’s contributions in building a junior program in this province. It’s no coincidence that golf is growing in this province with his passionate involvement.
Without the MJT Program I’m not sure Alex, and many others, would have dreamt that golf scholarships would be something to strive for. Due to MJT, Jeff Chambers and Golf SK, this is now number one on Alex’s list of goals. Best regards, D.S./SK
Hello Trent, This is an amazing opportunity that Elias would love to participate in! He is excited and humbled to have this fantastic opportunity! Thank you again for this opportunity!! J.H./SK
Thank you so much for all the organizing you have all put into this once in a lifetime trip. Kyle is really looking forward to this and excited. Thank you again ... greatly appreciate all you do. C.M./BC
I just wanted to say thanks for everything the MJT does to give kids the chance to compete and develop. MJT was J’s first introduction to competitive golf in 2015. He’s travelled to MJT events in Phoenix, Florida, BC, Saskatchewan and Niagara (twice). He’s developed some great friendships across multiple provinces. Thanks very much for all your hours of hard work to make the MJT great..... NA/AB
Thanks so much for inviting us to the MJT Team Challenge at Royal Niagara. The players loved the modified college format as it truly gave them the feeling of what it will be like to play at the next level, which all of our players aspire to do. The different pressure of playing for a team is a challenge that all young golfers should experience before trying to compete at the collegiate level. Our team absolutely loved it! In addition, all the coaches at the event really appreciated the opportunity to be able to converse with the players on the course during the tournament, just as the coaches are able to do in college golf. Coaching during play is not permitted at regular junior events and it was so great to be able to help the kids manage their emotions and make good decisions in the heat of the battle. Thanks to you and the entire staff at the MJT for hosting such a great event and to Corey and his team at Royal Niagara for being so hospitable and allowing us to play their beautiful and very challenging course. We're already looking forward to next year's event and to our on-going partnership with the MJT!...Sean Foley Performance- Lake Mary, Florida

Wanted to send a note and say thanks. M had a great first experience. He was pumped and may have gotten the bug. I’ve never been around formal golf competition and this was a learning experience.

Hi Russ, thank you so much for everything, I cannot thank the MJT enough for the opportunities they have given me. I was just curious as to how I am able to collect this generous reward, as well as the player of the year reward, or does this all happen in Florida? Thanks again..... D/AB

I simply wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for hosting a phenomenal event at the Fairmont Banff Springs. This was TR’s first MJT event and we appreciate it takes a lot of organizing between registrants, the venue, prizes and sponsorship. Your sincere personality made T quite comfortable asking questions and seeking out information during a very busy time on the day of the event. As events go, there is always obstacles and in this case, other tournaments, wildlife and weather, but it was done with great communication and calmness. Thanks again and wish you a great rest of your tournament season. - K.R., AB
