2017 Tee Times
The St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour will not increase the Registration Fees for the 2017 Tour, and they will remain at $25.00. The registration fee will be Required before any player is allowed to compete in any 2017 Tour Event. It’s imperative when you attend your first event in 2017 you must pay your annual Registration Fees as well as the Event entry fee.
Players must book directly with the host club and the times will be the responsibility of the Host Club. Registration cut-off dates are at the discretion of the Host Club to allow sufficient time to make the draw, and have it posted on the website. Late registrations will be considered. It is important you register early to avoid not being accepted.
Handicap Factors - 2017
The Handicap Factor is calculated using the best 10 of the player’s last 20 rounds and updated with each new round played. The Handicap Factor travels with the golfer from course to course and is adjusted up or down depending on the length and difficulty of the course played, resulting in a “Course Handicap”. The Course Handicap is the number of strokes a golfer receives from a specific set of tees at the course played and represents the number of strokes he would require to play equitably against a “scratch” golfer (a golfer with a Handicap Factor of “0.0′). The more difficult the golf course, the more strokes the golfer receives and vice versa.
It is very important that you maintain and keep your Handicap Factor. If you are a member at a club – then this would probably be included in your membership fee. Check with your Club Professional or Junior Chairman.
If you are not a member of a club – you can still keep a handicap.
Go online to RCGA Network (golfcanada.ca) and join. There is a small fee involved – so make sure Mom and Dad are okay with this. Once you join Golf Canada, you are automatically registered for the Golf Association of Ontario.
Your valid Handicap Factor is needed to participate in the NET competitions at our events.
If you do not have a valid Handicap Factor– then you can still play. You will be participating in the GROSS Division only.
If you do not know how to get a Handicap Factor then please ask one of the St Lawrence Tour reps and we will be happy to help you get established.

Remember your Registration Fee $25.00 is due, and to bring your Health Card for your residency verification required by Golf Ontario
Posting of Starting Times
Unlike previous years the tee times will not be posted on the website until the eve of the event. Because there have been so many late entries in previous years which resulted in several changes to the website, the Host Club will be advised to submit their final draw on the eve of the event, at which time the draw will be posted to the website.
