Registration Cut-off Date for Smugglers Glen Is Sunday July 29th

 

Special Important Notice to all St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour Players 

 

It is very important that you register for any of our events at least 5 days before a tournament. The tour event dates are published late in May on the Website, which gives you plenty of time to plan your schedule.  All of our Host Clubs want to work with us to provide a Junior Program but they do have a business to run and they are not prepared to leave tee times open to accommodate a Junior Tournament if the players are not going to register in a reasonable time.   

Loyalist had only 8 players registered 4 days before the tournament and even though many players seem to wait until the last minute to register, Loyalist decided to release those tee times to the public and cancelled their Junior Event.  Cancelling one of our tournaments is a great disappointment to the Host Club, the players who hoped to play, and we the committee who work very hard to make these events happen.   

If you want this tour to continue you must be more responsible to ensure you make early commitments to each event.

We’re really excited to have secured Ambassador as our 2018 site. Ambassador is one of the finest clubs in our area. They hosted last year’s GO men’s amateur and few years ago hosted the PGA Canada Tour Championship. This year they will be hosting a PGA Canada event in early July.

Also, below are details pertaining to our host hotel. We have booked a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn and Suites at 1855 Huron Church Road. Please note rooms will only be blocked until Aug 5th, so please book early. Specific booking details are below. The room rate is $129.00 per night.  Hotels room rates are surprisingly high in Windsor. This is the best room rate we were able to negotiate with a local quality hotel (with assistance from the University of Windsor Golf program).

Atom Division 2018

Due to the success of the introduction of a trial basis for an Atom Division in 2017, the committee is pleased to announce there will be a regular Atom Division effective starting with the 2018 golf tour. Players in this new Division must be (U11) 10 & 9 or younger on August 1st. 2018 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 2018, and to establish a reasonable entry fee for the Atom (U11) program.  

The following will apply to this Division 

The Ontario Championships in August of each year, which includes all the Junior Tours in Ontario does not include the Atom Division in this annual event, therefore the St, Lawrence    Junior Golf Tour will waive the $25.00 registration fee for the Atom Division.    

    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.
