Junior Golf with the WMGA

2013 Junior Girls' Open Championship

L to R: Alessandra Ricigliano (Runner-Up) & Emily Corrigan (Low Gross)

The WMGA is always looking for increased participation in our junior golf. A girl who has not reached her 19th birthday by the first day of the calendar year and has not started college, who is a member of a Member Club, or whose parent or guardian is a member of a Member Club, and pays a $20 membership fee, may become a Junior Member for that year. If you are a skilled golfer with a 23.0 USGA Handicap Index or below, you are eligible to play in any WMGA event.

 

There are all levels of players participating in our junior events. Don’t be shy; one of our goals is to educate players on the course. Each player is assigned a volunteer to ride along with each group. We are there to help.

 

We look forward to seeing you out on the course for a great golfing experience!

 

There are 3 tournaments each year for juniors sponsored by the WMGA:

  1. The Junior Intercity tournament an invitational tournament for the very best of our juniors on June 24 and 25 at Longmeadow Country Club in Longmeadow, Massachusetts.  The Chair chooses the team of 5 players plus one alternate. The tournament is played against the elite junior girls from Massachusetts and Philadelphia.  The venue rotates each year and there is overnight travel involved.
