Golfer Pairing

WJGA staff will make all pairings for tournament play. Part of the benefit of junior golf is to meet and play with other golfers. Expect that you will not ordinarily be paired with your friends. Tee times and pairings will be communicated 2 days before each event.

Golfing Attire

Proper junior golf attire must be worn. Shirts or caps with offensive imprints are not permitted.

On the Course
