Here are just a few of our frequently asked questions. If your question is not answered here, please feel free to contact us.
The KJGA strives to maintain the best possible value for junior golfers. The expansion of the schedule means rising costs. Signing up early helps us better plan these events. The additional $10.00 for registering after June 10 and the $5.00 fee for additional events in the 13-15 and 16-18 age group help us cover costs while keeping the pricing fair, especially for those who only play in a few events. There are no refunds for any reason unless the tournament field size is limited. You are allowed to add or change events during the season if space permits.
Yes. According to the KJGA Code of Conduct, failure to show up for an event you scheduled may result in a suspension from the next entered KJGA event. Remember that you are paired with 2-3 other players. Not giving us ample notice of a cancelation may affect the pairings and/or tee times of those other players. It is also discourteous to the host courses that have planned for a certain number of players. In order to maintain the integrity and stature of the KJGA, we ask that you only sign up for the events you are certain you can attend. Poor attendance may affect the costs and ability of the KJGA to find quality courses in the future to host our events. To cancel for an event you have signed up for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Yes. However, some sort of formal instruction is recommended, as tournament play is all that is offered for the older age groups. Formal instruction from local PGA professionals is available at reasonable rates. A schedule for many of the programs offered at area courses is included with this newsletter. Current information is available online at www.kalamazoojuniorgolf.org.
No. In order to maintain a tournament flavor to the KJGA, there will be no tee time requests. We understand that there may be transportation concerns for some parents, but handling 400+ tee time requests is impracticable for our administrative volunteers. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to verify your tee time and let us know if you will be unable to participate. Remember that most tee times are normally between 7:30am and 11:00am and plan your schedule accordingly..
Tee times will be available via our website (www.kalamazoojuniorgolf.org) approximately one week before each event. No notices will be mailed out. It is each player’s responsibility to arrive at his or her tee time 15 minutes early. Directions are available by calling each golf course directly.
