The JDL series is a way for juniors to gain competitive golf experience in a more relaxed and fun environment. It is a way for junior golfers to gain the knowledge of the rules, etiquette, and competitive nature of tournament golf. First and foremost we want the juniors to have fun on the golf course. The JDL series is not meant to be extremely competitive but rather meant to give players the experience they need to be comfortable playing competitive golf.
Any junior golfer with no previous competitive golf experience & all 7-8 year olds MUST start in the JDL. These events are 9-hole tournaments and are played on par-3 and executive length golf courses. JDL events are offered between 4 to 6 times per month during our spring, summer, and fall seasons. In order for players to move up from the JDL to the Players’ Tour they must complete a series of requirements which are listed below (7 & 8 year-olds must remain at the JDL level until their 9th birthday). Players will receive a certificate upon the successful completion of the JDL level.
Guidelines to move up to the Players’ Tour:
Player must be at least 9 years of age.
Boys: Shoot 3 or more rounds of 8 over par or better in an SCPGA JDL event, in a single calendar year.
Girls: Shoot 3 or more rounds of 9 over par or better in an SCPGA JDL event, in a single calendar year.
Fill out an application to move up from the JDL to the Players’ Tour. This document can be found on the Junior Tour Documents page of this website under the Resources tab. Once you have printed and filled out the form, please email it to Kevin Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to (951) 331-4701. Applications will be considered by the SCPGA Junior Tour staff and only approved if the applicant is proficient enough in the rules of golf, etiquette, scoring, etc. to compete on the Players’ Tour.
Upon approval, you will receive a confirmation email from the SCPGA Junior Tour. Then applicants must take the Players’ Tour Rules Quiz on this website under the Membership tab.
Finally, applicants must pay the membership price difference between JDL and the Players’ Tour. This can be done by calling the SCPGA office at (951) 845-4653.
