Events & Updates
The Junior Foundation has a few updates for the 2020 season.
- The Junior Tour event at Whistling Straits on July 12th will continue to be a lottery drawing for players to get into this event. Juniors will have 24 hours from when registration starts (April 7th at 6 p.m.) to register. Everyone that registers during this time will be put into a pending status and your credit card will not be charged. The lottery drawing will be random and will take place on April 9th. Once the lottery takes place the selected entries will be charged on credit card you registered with. Second, the tournament will Only be open to boys & girls ages 14-18. This golf course is very difficult and we have had issues with pace of play in the 13 & under division in years past.
- We are happy to announce that Balance & Believe is back as the presenting sponsor for the Junior Tour. We will look to partner with B&B for the Bucket of Hope events and pick out other charities that an event will specifically help. Look for more information this spring before events start in June.
