Junior Tour Information


 

Welcome to the 2011 season of the Pocono Junior Golf Tour, sponsored by the Pocono Professional Golf Series and local PGA professionals. When the PPGS took over administration of the Junior Tour 2009, we hoped to increase participating and create more opportunities for young golfers to play and learn the game of golf. We were overwhelmed by the turnout.Last year, we added instructional clinics for the first time and hope to expand them this year.




WHO MAY PLAY:
Any boy or girl between the ages of 10 and 18 who wants to play golf in a fun and competitive environment. Junior golfers do not have to be expert players to participate, but they must have a basic knowledge of the game's rules and etiquette and be able to play 9 or 18 holes on their own (depending on the age division). In the future, we hope to add a "developmental tour" for those junior golfers who are just beginning the game.

FEES:

To participate this year, the PJGT requires a $10 seasonal registration fee, regardless of the number of events in which you play. There will also be an on-site fee of $10 paid to the host club each week. That $10 covers course fees. Some clubs may provide free snacks and beverages, but this is at the discretion of the individual clubs and their owners. Keep in mind that these clubs are giving up prime tee times for which they charge a lot more money.

 

REGISTRATION:

Registration will be online only in 2011. Please sign up at least three days in advance to sign up for the week’s tournament. Give your name and age, and if you are 13 or younger, whether you will be playing 9 or 18 holes. Age divisions are listed below. You can move up an age division (from 9 holes to 18 holes), but you cannot move down. Registering in advance helps us with the pairings and is a courtesy to the host clubs. Anyone who misses the first week and the mandatory rules meeting must arrive a half-hour early and meet with one of the PPGS professionals to register for the season and receive rules instructions.

 

AGE DIVISIONS:

Younger golfers may move up an age division in order to play 18 holes, but ages 14 and older must play 18 holes. At the discretion of the host club, juniors may play in a non-competitive division – call the host professional for information. The PPGS reserves the right to adjust the divisions during the season based on the level of participation.

  • Boys 9-hole division ages 10-11
  • Boys 9-hole division ages 12-13
  • Boys 18-hole division up to age 15
  • Boys 18-hole division ages 16-18
  • Girls 9-hole division ages 10-13
  • Girls 18-hole division up to age 18
 

RULES:

Following is a list of the rules of play. Host clubs may modify these rules or add rules specific to their course.

  1. Maximum of 10 strokes per hole (9-hole division only).
  2. No mulligans – all stroke count (including whiffs).
  3. Scorecards must be signed and attested.
  4. Spectators (parents) may not offer instruction or advice on the course.
  5. Participants must walk the course (no carts). Anyone caught riding in a cart will be disqualified.
 

RESULTS AND AWARDS:

Results will be available immediately following play and prizes will be awarded. In addition, the PPGS will tabulate the results throughout the season and present end-of-season awards after the final week’s event. A new website, www.PPGSgolf.com is under construction, and we hope to have the results and schedule posted.

Points will accumulate throughout the season. Each junior will receive a point for participation each week, with additional points for placing in the respective age divisions (3 points for first; 2 points for second; 1 point for third). Trophies will be awarded at the season finale in August (date and location TBA).
