The BCGU Junior Tour is open to all golfers - boys and girls - who will be under 16 years of age on 1st January 2019 and hold a "competition" handicap at a Bedfordshire golf club.
The events will be full handicap Stablefords played in threes - they will NOT be handicap qualifying events.
The events in the Tour are listed on the right. Places will be allotted on a first come first served basis. Online entry will open one calendar month before the date of the event. Click on the event to enter.
Entry is online and entries will only be considered complete when the entry fee (£5 per event) has been paid AND the Parental Consent Form has been submitted (one Parental Consent Form for the whole Tour). Payment is via PayPal but you do not need a PayPal account to pay online - credit/debit card is sufficient. Entry fees will only be refunded upto one week before the event, unless a reserve player is able to play.
There will be two divisions - U16 and U14 - based on ages as at 1 January 2019.
Prizes - including vouchers for coaching with a Bedfordshire Professional - will be awarded on the day to each division.
There will be an Order of Merit prize in each division which will be based on points awarded for finishes in the Junior Tour events. Points will be awarded on the following basis:
1 Point for participation.
10 points for first place, 7 points for second place, 5 points for third place, 3 points for fourth place and and 1 point for fifth place.
No participation points will be awarded to anyone who doesn't complete the round. Countback will decide the placings of any players who have the same number of points.
Any tie in the Order of Merit standings will be decided first by reference to the total number of events in which each of the tied players have participated. If still tied, reference will be made to the total Order of Merit points won in the events in which ALL the tied players participated. If still tied, all prizes will be shared.
The BCGU Junior Manager will administer the events and the Order of Merit - his decisions shall be final.
Parents are requested to familiarise themselves with the BCGU Child Protection Policy.
