THE SCPGA The Southern California PGA has added an alumni club to its successful Junior Tour Club, so each golfer can continue to maintain a Handicap Index and stay involved after high school graduation. In the Junior Tour Club, kids progress through four stages: Recreational/Skill Development, Tour Preparation, Competitive Golf and College Preparatory. And at each level, juniors are provided invaluable learning oppor-tunities and playing experiences. YOUTH ON COURSE The SCGA Youth on Course clubs allow junior golfers the opportunity to get involved in golf and access courses and driving ranges at dis-counted fees. Actually playing golf is just a small part of these clubs’ activities, however. To be eligible for participation, juniors must achieve certification, which encompasses golf rules, etiquette, ability and life skills/education. To learn more about any of the SCGA’s junior golf clubs, please visit PLAYING OPPORTUNITIES In addition to the competitions available through the junior golf clubs mentioned, the SCGA has several championships open to juniors who maintain a Handicap Index. The 2011 SCGA Parent/Junior Championship will take place on July 18 at Rolling Hills Country Club. This event is open to related partners (e.g., parent/child, grandparent/grandchild, uncle/ nephew) who are both members of the SCGA. The deadline to enter is June 29. There are many opportunities for juniors to get involved in this great game we all love. TOM MENDOZA SCGA.ORG MAY/JUNE 2011 | FORE Magazine | 53
