When: June 3, 10, 17, July 1, 15, 22 – tee times between 11:00-12:00
Where: The Ridge Golf Club
Why: Continue the FUN team format and keep kids engaged!
The 17U Jr. Team program at The Ridge is for junior golfers who have aged out of PGA Jr. League, but still want to enjoy the fun atmosphere of team golf. Players may not have graduated from high school, in some instances an 18 year old may be allowed to participate, as long as they are entering their senior year.
This will be a team format with partners playing a 1 low net best score shamble format. Shamble is when both partners tee off, the better tee shot is chosen, and both partners play their own ball the remainder of the hole. The lower score of the two will be used as the team score for that hole. Every player will have a handicap. Each hole is worth one point, 9 points in a match vs. the opposing team.
Teams will accumulate points throughout the season, along with a win/loss record. The final match of the season will be a position match. The players named team champions for the season will win a special trip to accompany Matt, Alex, and Karrie to play an exclusive golf course in our area!
The fee for 17U Jr. Team will be $100 a player. Members of this program have the opportunity to purchase a Ridge Junior Membership at half price (only $75). Personal lessons will be given each week to team members who participate in their scheduled match and put in time on their own or with a teammate practicing. These lessons may be set up with Matt, Karrie, or Alex any day of the week.
Teams will be made up of 4 players, composed by the golf professional staff. If a team member is unable to play in a match, they may find a substitute to play in their place.
All participants, subs included, must post at least five 9 hole scores to GHIN before they play in a match. GHIN handicaps are free for all individuals under the age of 18.
