Ages 13-18 Tournament Play
The 13-18 year old play 18-hole events at various golf courses throughout Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties and yardages are set based on the level of play and age.
We also offer a 9-Hole Player Development Tour for 13-18 year old golfers who have limited playing experience and shoot 120 or more for 18 holes.
Our tournaments start promptly at 8:00am and are shotgun starts.
The Rules of Golf guidebook provides a set of standards that require players’ adherence that are not monitored by a referee or umpire, but by the player’s own sense of doing what is right. Under SWFJGA direction, junior golfers learn what it means to play fairly and honestly and how to self-govern as a responsible member of society.
Funding Future Leaders
The SWFJGA is dedicated to supporting the continued education of our members. Foremost in our focus is the perpetuation of the college scholarship fund. By awarding scholarships, the fund supports deserving college-bound golfers who have met our requirements.
SWFJGA provides an instructional platform for building and perfecting individual physical skills and ability. The process of skill-building and development is a replicable roadmap for growth in almost every mode of future personal development.
SWFJGA promotes personal growth, responsibility, and positive social interaction that underpins effective communication, relationship building and achievement with and through others. Many of our juniors build relationships that last a lifetime.
Through “Tournament Golf”, SWFJGA builds the golfer’s capability to conduct him/herself in a manner that is gracious, fair, polite and respectful while participating in any form of competitive endeavor.
Participating in Tournaments – “Bringing It All Together”
Participating in the competitive Tournament setting requires junior golfers to apply skills mastery, mental acuity, and temperament under time and delivery boundaries. The spirit of competition is healthily embraced as an avenue to continued self-improvement and achievement. Under direction of the SWFJGA, juniors learn how to compete in constructive ways while learning to channel their personal fears, nerves and excitement in to fun and satisfying results.
