Please read this thoroughly before calling the office with any questions. Hopefully, most, if not all, information you will need is right here.
It is our goal to provide our members with an experience in tournament golf that is both fun and educational. We ask that you, as their parents, help us in the endeavor and follow the guidelines set forth by our organization to ensure that our goals are met. We ask you to please make note of and abide by the following principals:
To us, every junior on our tour is the next up and coming star. Please donít let your personal pride and goals overshadow the thrust of our efforts.
Parents, friends, or other spectators will not be allowed on the golf course during Met PGA Junior Tour regular season events. Spectators will be allowed on the course for specific Championship events which will be announced prior to the event. The other exception is for those parents authorized to walk and help score for the 7-11 age divisions. Where possible, there will be specific areas on the golf course where spectators will be able to watch players. Unauthorized spectators on the golf course will be asked to leave and may be subject to having the junior(s) they are watching disqualified.
The average number of tournaments each player gets into initially is limited. Generally, the juniors are accepted into 4 or 5 events each summer. Some courses are more in-demand than others. When determining your tournament selections online, please remember that we give each junior 9 Preference Stickers for a reason - the more options selected, the better your childís chance to participate in as many events as possible. If you donít use all your preference stickers, your child might not be accepted into the average of 4 events!
Our tour is an introduction to tournament golf for these juniors and for many it is a difficult transition from playing a regular round. It is our goal to make their first experience with tournament golf rewarding and enjoyable so they will want to continue their young careers. We hate to see any added pressure put onto our tour players and ask that you keep this in mind at all times.
Parents are guests at these clubs too and must adhere to dress guidelines set forth in this handbook. If you are present at our tour event and are inappropriately dressed, you will be asked to leave.
The Golden Rule: The most important thing is to have fun!
