Amelia Golf would like to congratulate all the junior participants and thank the many volunteers, parents and sponsors for their efforts in making the tournament a great success.
The purpose of Junior Golf is to encourage young golfers under the age of 18 to learn and practice golf using the accepted rules and manners adopted by the Virginia State Golf Association (VSGA). The purpose of the Piedmont Section Junior Golf Association is to provide various playing fields with adult supervision and support so that these young golfers will develop their abilities to the highest standards of play.
Good sportsmanship and manners are demanded. The goal of this program is to acclimate young golfers to tournament play so they can play any course with confidence in their abilities.
One-Time Annual Membership- Registration fee is required on or before the first tournament date of the season: $20 payable to your home course or Sponsor.
Individual Tournament Events: $10 to be paid to the hosting club on the day of the event.
Junior Golfers are responsible for notifying their respective home course sponsors no later than Monday evening prior to the Thursday tournament they want to participate in.
