Junior Golf Tournaments scheduled in the PNW District

The Meridian Optimist Club is making preparations for the pre-qualifying tournament for the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in the PNW District.

Because we have clubs in Canada and the US, we are able to host two District Tournaments that advance golfers to the international match.  They are:

  • May 22-23, 2010 - Canada Qualifier at Swan-e-Set Resort & Country Club, Pitt Meadows, BC 
  • June 21, 2010 - US Qualifier Meriwether National Golf Club, Hillsboro, Oregon
Every Optimist Club may send golfers to a District Tournament; there are no prerequisites or pre-qualifying tournaments needed.  Golfers may also choose to play at large without club sponsorship.

However, in 2009 the Meridian Club decided to provide an opportunity for young golfers to play closer to home, practice, and compete for bragging rights as well as the opportunity to move forward with sponsorship from the Meridian Optimist Club.  In order to fit into the Optimist Junior Golf Championship schedule, the tournament is considered a pre-qualifier.  

The Meridian Junior Golf  Pre-Qualifying Tournament will take place at the Boise Ranch Golf Club on May 24, 2010.  Click on the picture to enlarge and print your entry form or download here.
