Tour Information and Playing OpportunitIES
MVJG has graduated many players to a competitive level of the game of golf. If your interest is to play in junior golf competitions, then you are definitely in the right place. There are many Junior Golf Tournament organizations out there. But where should you start. And what about high school golf? We are here to help answer those questions.
First off, did you know there are approximately 18 middle schools in our valley with golf teams? At the high school level in this valley the play is off the charts. Southwestern is one of the best high school golf leagues in the country. If you don’t have a fair amount of experience, it is very difficult to make the team, let alone see any playing time. So if you can get started at the middle school level you will have a much better chance at making that high school team. If not that is ok because there is more opportunity available.
There are 3 Junior Developmental Golf Seasons each year through MVJG offering competitive play in a team format.
In order to participate in League Play, each Junior Golfer may be required to purchase membership in the SCGA Youth Program which gets you $5 green fees at many participating golf courses. Get more Info at SCGA.org
