Winter junior golf notes


pnw optimist clubs golf

Today's Christmas story offering arrives straight from the Optimist International office and the Optimist Golf program.

We're somewhat familiar with the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships. Junior golfers from Optimist Clubs in the PNW District participate in tournaments in British Columbia and Oregon in order to advance to this prestigious, annual event.

Did you know that the Optimist Junior Golf program includes more?

  • There are tournaments held throughout the year with the Optimist Junior Golf Tour. Locations include Myrtle Beach, SC, Fort Worth, TX, Hilton Head Island, SC, Kingsville, ON, and Denver, CO. 
  • There is a Tournament of Champions held in November at the PGA National Resort and Spa, Palm Beach Gardens, FL. 

There are also opportunities for junior golfers to be recognized for scholarship and and service. Junior golfers may apply for two special awards and if selected they will receive an exemption into the 2018 Optimist Championship, tournament entry which includes golf, hotel accommodations and meals, plus a $1,000 scholarship.

Junior golfers may be involved in the Optimist International Golf Program even if the local Optimist Club does not participate. However, we encourage you and your Optimist Club to be involved.

Share these great junior golf sportsmanship opportunities with the athletes and others in your community. In the spirit of Christmas, share optimism.
