NJGT TEAM Golf: Ages 7-13
Join the team!
Junior team golf is a new endeavor available to juniors provided by the Nebraska PGA Section and the Nebraska Junior Golf Tour.
Team golf serves as a fun, social and less stressful approach to tournament golf. It provides juniors with knowledge and skills that encourage long term youth development and a lifetime of golf enjoyment.
Eligible ages and practices are listed above. Beginners are encourage to join!
Format: Team Golf Tournaments will consist of multiple co-ed competing teams from other participating clubs. Each team will have 6 players and have 3 two-player pairings. The format will be a two-person scramble over 9 holes. Subs are allowed during the round and each team is encouraged to have 9 players available. Players will play a shorter course with tees set according to age.
Participants must register with the NJGT and pay the administration fee of $50. Tournament fees are $20 per event played.
Professional staff will coach the team but assistant parent coaches are needed. Parents will provide transportation to and from practices and team events.
Individual Golf: Ages 7-16
There are 3 Junior Tours available for individual competition this season:
Siouxland Junior Tour - www.sljgt.org
Nebraska Junior Golf Tour - http://www.njgt.org/
South Dakota Junior Golf Tour - http://sdga.org/junior-golf
Each of the tours will host an event at Two Rivers GC this season as well as other area courses.
Any or all three of the tours are recommended. All will provide the junior golfer an excellent opportunity to test his or her game. Players will improve competitively and enjoy the challenge of playing for a lower score.
Dates, tournament sites and fees are all available through the respective websites.
Registration in the NJGT is required to compete in the Team Golf events. Once registered the junior is also eligible for all NJGT individual tournaments.
Parents will provide transportation to and from practices and individual events.
