Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2016 Coastal Junior Golf Tour season! We are very excited about another outstanding schedule of events for your kids this summer!

It should be noted that Coastal Junior Golf  Tour is for experienced junior golfers, and children will be required to walk and carry their own bags (pull carts may be allowed at certain facilities). Your child should already be able to play (walking) in +/- 2 hours per nine holes and understand basic rules of golf in order to participate.  For this summer we are instituting a qualifier to ensure readiness for the 18 hole divisions. Beginners and 9 holers will participate in the PGA Junior League (separate schedule). If you are unsure if your child is ready, you may have your local golf professional evaluate your child, or contact myself to set up a time to do so. (Also see guidelines under tour schedules)

Some other points you should be aware of for this summer:

  • Your children will adhere to a Code of Conduct set forth by the tour, please review with your child and make sure that you both understand it.
  • Registration into tournaments via phone, email, or text must be done by Friday before each event. It is important that we have an accurate list of who is participating, as space may be limited, and pairings need to be delivered to the host course in advance. No late entries will be accepted unless there is a twosome in that age group.
  • It is each players responsibility to know their starting time and hole, and to be at their tee 5 minutes before their tee time. Failure to do so could result in disqualification from the event
  • Please make sure children have a lunch/snack packed or money so they can get something at the turn or when they finish. It is important in the extreme summer heat that they also have a bottle of ice water or sports drink with them as well. Encourage the kids to wear sunblock, and /or have a small wet towel to keep them cool.
  • Please make sure children are picked up from the golf course in a timely manner (within a half hour of projected finish time).

Clinics may be offered (site TBD). Individual lessons also available.

I look forward to an exciting summer of competition, fun, and camaraderie. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me.

Yours in Golf,

Tee times will be available on website ( 48 hours prior to tournament.

Pace of play is a big issue at our events. In order for the tour to continue to play the finest courses in our area, we must keep up the pace of play and not interfere with normal play at the courses that day.

If your child cannot get around the course in a timely manner, he/she may be limited to nine holes only (if in an older age group). We will put them at a tee length that gives them the best opportunity for success. In general we strive for a pace of play of no more than 2 hours 15 minutes for nine holes, and 4 hours 30 minutes for 18 holes.

Ability has a big factor in pace of play. A guideline for ability to play on the Advanced Tour:

Ages 12 & over:  Should be able to shoot better than 55 for nine holes or average less than 110 from tees 5700-6300 yards

Ages 9 -11: Should be able to shoot under 60 for nine holes from tees 2300-2600 yards

If your child is over these limits, please consider signing them up for PGA Junior League Team!

The Coastal Junior Golf Tour is a program designed to provide youth the opportunity to participate, further develop their skills, enjoy and compete on a level that provides a competitive challenge. The Coastal Junior Golf Tour is a 501-C7 nonprofit corporation.
