 July 10th

Effective July 10th at The Landings Tour Event The St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour introduced an Atom Division for the remainder of the 2017 Tour. Players in this new Division must be (U11) 10 & 9 or younger on August 1sth. 2017, and will include both girls and boys in this Division. It is an opportunity for juniors to develop their skills, play different courses, meet new friends and develop their knowledge of the rules of the game. We encourage our Host Clubs to participate in this program in 2017, and to establish a reasonable entry fee for the Atom (U11) program. There will be a review at the end of the season to evaluate this program. 

The following will apply to this Division 

·     The Tour's Registration Fee will be $15.00 (waived by St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour for the balance of the 2017 Tour) 

·     The tournament will be 9 holes from the shortest tees. (approximately 2000 yds.)

·     Host clubs can shorten the tee blocks to accommodate the recommended yardage.

·     A parent will be allowed to caddy, (carry clubs or pull cart)

·     Caddies will be allowed to give assistance to speed up the game on

  •  the fairways and
  •  the greens

We are committed to advancing and introducing the game of golf to younger players, and we hope this new Division will help achieve that goal.

Major Development Introduced By Golf Ontario Starting in 2016

EVERY ST. LAWRENCE JUNIOR GOLF TOURNAMENT IS RANKED BY GOLF ONTARIO"  ALL PLAYERS CAN EARN POINTS ON THE GOLF ONTARIO JUNIOR RANKING LIST BY PERFORMING WELL AT OUR EVENTS. 

In years past, our Junior golfers had to go play in other tournaments to get noticed and to open opportunities for them in golf (such as golf scholarships, being on Ontario Jr. Golf Team, etc.)  Playing in our tour (or any of the 10 Regional Jr. Golf Tours) didn’t help the better players get recognized.  That’s why many of them stopped playing in the St. Lawrence Tour... they were too busy going to events in Ottawa, Toronto, etc., where they would get noticed.  

Now Golf Ontario (formerly Golf Association of Ontario) has done something to even the playing field for all Junior Golfers. They have developed a merit award ranking system.  Here’s how it works. You must have a registered handicap with Golf Canada/Golf Ontario.  If you join the St. Lawrence Tour again, We will send your name to Golf Ontario and they will put you on the list of Junior Golfers for merit points.  Every time you play in one of our events (provided it meets the criteria set by Golf Ontario) We will send your score to them.  Points are awarded for how you performed in each event. You can earn as much as 200 points by winning one of our events in your age division. Most importantly, if you are gaining merit points by doing well at several Junior Golf Tournaments, your name will become known by all those interested in supporting Junior Golfers. They’ll be looking at the Merit list and seeing which Juniors have the most points. To learn more about this new Merit Award system check the following 2 links:
