Optimist Clubs should plan now for Junior Golf prequalifiers

Question: It's February. Is that too early to start thinking about Junior Golf?
Answer: Of course not! Optimist International Junior Golf is one of our largest programs and gets year-round attention from around the world.

The Pacific Northwest District - Optimist International participates in the Optimist International 
Junior Golf Championships. Junior golfers have the opportunity to participate in two different qualifying tournaments. The first tournament is held in British Columbia and the second will be held in Oregon.

Junior golfers may register at-large; however Optimist Clubs may also host prequalifying tournaments and move the winning golfers forward. Alternatively, Optimist Clubs may sponsor golfers, as many as they like, into the tournament in their country of residence.
