Youth golf sign ups now open
The Northeast Oregon Junior Golf Association has released its schedule for the next three months.
Boys and girls, ranging from ages 8 to 18, are eligible to sign up. There are four categories for boys to sign up in, beginning with 8-11-year-olds in the pee wee division. Twelve and 13-year-olds are in the intermediate group, 14 and 15-year-olds are classified in the boys division, and ages 16-18 are in the high school group.
Girls ages 8 to 11 can sign up for the pee wee division, 12 to 14-year-olds have an intermediate group, and 15 through 18-year-olds will compete in the high school group.
Tournament director Greg Grant, who is in his fourth year running the association, says the set of tournaments are a great and affordable way for kids to play in tournament settings around the region. Each tournament entry fee is $15.
The season will offer not only beginning golfers a chance to see what tournament settings are all about and get more comfortable as they continue to play competitively.
“Lots of successful golfers have gone through it,” Grant said. “They have an opportunity to travel less than two hours for all these tournaments. That’s really been the best part — people don’t have to leave the immediate area.”
