Introduced in 2014, the spring tournaments are designed for juniors who wish to participate in a tournament atmosphere before the Summer Series kicks off in late May. There will be approximately two to four tournaments for each of the main divisions (Beginner, 9-Hole, and 18-Hole) during March through early May. Membership is not required for spring tournaments.
Spring tournaments will be held on weekends.
There are no points awarded for spring tournaments, nor are spring tournaments counted in the required number of events needed to qualify for a Season-Ending Championship. Medals will be awarded to the players finishing in the top 3 of the respective division. Tournament fees vary for each event and division.
Also, for players registering to compete in a spring tournament, rules and orientation seminar requirements are deferred until the start of the Summer Series.
Summer Series Tournaments
The Summer Series has been the core of the program since its inception. These single-day golf tournaments take place during late May through July when juniors are on summer break from school. Tournaments are scheduled on weekdays at golf courses across the state. Tee times generally run between 7:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. (although this may vary in some cases).
Members may play in as many tournaments as they wish during the Summer Series. Points are awarded to the top 19 finishers in each age group at the 9-Hole and 18-Hole level. These points are averaged at the conclusion of the summer and are a part of the criteria for qualifying for Season-Ending Championships.
In order to participate in any Summer Series tournament, players must be members prior to competing in a tournament. For more information on membership and to register, please click here.
