The JGA is a performance-based organization which allows our kids to improve and gain confidence while playing during the summer. By starting in the lowest division, we feel this achieves that goal. Kids with tournament experience and also high school players can request an exception to be considered by our Division Committee.
Yes! Our courses support the use of pushcarts. If a course does not, then we will notify you prior to the tournament.
Yes! Only the ones that offer yardage, NOT the ones that offer slope information.
Yes! We have an alumni division that will tee off in the first tee time slot. Please complete the contact us form and select “Alumni Program”. Please include the date of the tournament you would like to participate in. Requests to play must be received no later than 9pm the Saturday prior to a tournament so arrangements with the host course can be made. No awards are given.
All kids of parents that live, work or attend school in Broward or Palm Beach County.
Our Division Committee maintains and evaluates scores to determine that they are in the appropriate division. Remember, it is important they feel what it is like to win and gain confidence before moving to the next division.
It is a course rule which means some charge for balls and some don’t. Be prepared and always bring money just in case.
Just show up! We are so thrilled to be able to work with so many instructors that there are plenty of opportunities to join one of our free golf clinics. Please check our Facebook page or our website for more information on our Free Clinics.
Scholarships are for immediate graduates only. To receive a scholarship the graduated senior must submit a written request to the JGA Board. Please see our website for all of the information on how to apply for a scholarship.
Yes! All items lost throughout the day should be turned into the scoring table. These items are saved so if you are looking for something you have lost, check at the scoring table first.
This is something that the golfer will come across often. It is important that all the golfers talk to the other players in regards to the rules. If this should happen, the golfer should discuss it with the other golfers and notify a JGA board member. It is important for all parents to realize that tournaments are the time for the players to apply all that is practiced. Talk about the round later!
It is important for each player to learn that they are responsible for keeping everyone else honest. Talk to the player, he/she may not be aware that a rule has been broken. Notify a JGA board member if needed.
The duration of a round varies by the division. Please visit our website for information about the estimated pace of play.
JGA offers a limited number of exemptions to those players whose families may be in need of financial help. Requests for financial exemptions must be submitted with the player’s application. All information submitted as part of the financial request will be considered confidential.
16. Can I transfer my tournament fee to another tournament if I am unable to attend a tournament I registered for?
Yes! Tournament transfers are permitted without penalty if a player finds out they are unable to play in a tournament that they registered for if they submit a withdraw request 72 hours prior to the tournament date.
Arrangements have not been made for practice rounds (unless stipulated) for any of the JGA tournaments. Some of the courses are open to the public, therefore you may arrange a practice round directly with the course.
Tee times are available on the Bluegolf website the Sunday prior to the Monday tournament.
The registration form provides you the opportunity to provide both email accounts. Most use the parent’s email account as the primary email account as that will be used to manage your JGA account via Bluegolf, including tournament registration, email communication etc.
20. Do I need to pay a membership fee for each of my children or is it an annual fee for the family?
Membership fees are per member/player, not per parent or family.
If a player decides to withdraw from the tournament during a weather delay they must:
- Advise the JGA Director at the scoring table of their intent to withdraw.
- All players in the group must come to the scoring table to validate their scores up to the last hole they played.
- All cards must be signed under the last hole they played.
- The player MUST submit their signed card to the JGA Director at the scoring table before departing the course.
If you are in a twosome and the other player withdraws for some reason during a tournament, do not play alone. Consult with a JGA Director about your next steps.
