SUMMER TOURNAMENTS

Parents, 

Your child can benefit greatly by playing in summer tournaments.  Below are four good option for middle and high school players:

 

1. CDGA (Chattanooga District Golf Association)
 
Six events; Local courses; Single-day, 18-hole events; $20.00 each
 
2. Sneds Tour (Partnership with the Snedeker Foundation) 
 
Multiple events; Courses throughout southeast; Single-day, 9-hole and 18-hole events
 
3. HGJT (Hurricane Junior Golf Tour) 
 
17 events; Courses around the eastern part of the US; Two-day, 36-hole events
 
4. AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) 
 
Multiple events; Courses around the country; Various formats 
 
 
By playing summer tournaments, players will meet and become friends with other players they are likely to see throughout their high school golfing career and beyond.  It is also a great way to prepare for  high school tournaments in which we participate each year.
 
The CDGA tour is a good option for most high school players; I highly recommend it as a minimum.  Note that you can pick and choose which events to enter, and you do not have to enter all of them.
