The Reston Cup is a series of tournaments where local juniors can learn and compete in competitive events. 2021 was our inaugural year for the Cup. The Cup has five different events with a variety of formats. Through these events, the players will be accumulating points, like the PGA Tour FedEx Cup. At the end of the 5 tournaments, the top two points gainers from each division will be granted an exemption into our Reston Junior Open, our junior club championship. Our first year of the series was a huge success and we are certainly looking forward to continued success for many years to come.

Junior Championship Trophy
This sterling silver trophy was originally presented to the Congressional Country Club Junior Champion, Jimmy Drain, in 1929. We found it online and thought it would be a great way to connect a little local golf history to our Junior Club Championship. Every year, 1st place from each division will get their name on the trophy.
