Mission Statement: 

 

The mission of the GreatLIFE Jr. Tour is to enrich the lives of junior golfers by helping build relationships that will last a lifetime while enjoying the wonderful game of golf.  

 

Purpose: 

The purpose of the GreatLIFE Jr. Tour is to provide affordable playing opportunities for kids to play competitive golf.

 

Eligibility:

All junior golfers 18 and under are eligible to play. The field size is limited to the first 93 golfers to sign up. All golfers should be able to get around the golf course without unduly delaying play and with minimal supervision.  They should be able to post a score of double par or less on most of the holes. 

 

Format: 

All tournaments are 18-hole stroke play events. All play is in twosomes and threesomes to improve the pace of play.  In most cases the first players finished less than the 4-hour mark and the longest it took for a group to play was 4 ½ hours.  We will hold the awards ceremonies as soon as all the kids are done in an age group.  We understand the importance of your time and get the results and prices out in a timely manner.

 

Events: 

We will have a total of 14 events that are open to any player that is a member of the GreatLIFE Jr Tour. 

 

Divisions

Golfers will play in the age group that they are eligible for that day of the tournament.  Any golfers wanting to play up a division will be at the discretion of the committee.  Please contact Jason Sudenga or Drew Trautman if you would like to play up a division.

 

The age groups are as follows: 

 

Ages 12 – Under

Ages 13 – 15

Ages 16 – 18

 

Fees: 

The membership fee is $20, which includes a GHIN handicap.  GreatLIFE members will pay $15 per event and Non-GreatLIFE members will pay $25 per event.  All tournament fees include green fees, range balls and lunch after play.

 

Prizes: 

All divisions will win awards for each event.  We will hand out medals and gift certificates to any of our GreatLIFE Pro Shops for the top three places in each division.

 

GreatLIFE JR. CUP: (16 - 18 Age divisions): 

The winner of the 16 – 18 boy’s and girl’s division of the GreatLIFE Jr. Tour will each receive an exemption into the 2022 GreatLIFE Jr. Challenge put on by the AJGA.  The AJGA is the PGA Tour of junior golf.  They host junior tournaments across the country and have had the likes of the PGA Tour’s Justin Thomas and many others go on to play on the PGA Tour.

 

Each division will have a point system like the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour.  Players will receive points based on how they finish in each tournament.  The leading point winner in the 16 – 18 boy’s and girl’s division will be declared the GreatLIFE Jr. Cup Champion. 

 

The points will go as follows:
