This is the first year the Girls Junior PGA Championship will be held separate from the boys. There was no qualifier for this tournament, all participating girls reside in the Iowa PGA Section boundaries. 

The 43rd Iowa Girls Junior PGA Championship is an AJGA Performance Based Entry (PBE) event in which four stars will be awarded to the Champion, the top 20% will receive two stars and the top 50% will receive one star. This event is also a Major Tournament on the Iowa PGA schedule, and Player of the Year points will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. 

The 43rd Girls Junior PGA Championship will feature 144 of the Nation’s top high school golfers participating in a 72-hole stroke play Championship. There will be a 36-hole cut, reducing the field to the low 70 players and ties. All players qualify for this event through their local PGA Section Championship.
