Junior Tour 2019/20


Junior Tour Format for 2019/20

The Tour is open to all golfers - boys and girls - who will be Under 16 years of age on 1st January 2020 and who hold their handicap at a Bedfordshire club.


Handicap Qualifying

The events will be full handicap Stablefords played in threes and fours. In a change from previous years, and in response to feedback from players in last winter's Tour, the events will be handicap qualifying to the extent that this is possible - if participation levels are high, some of the events may have to be played over fewer than 18 holes which will make them non-qualifying for handicap purposes.


Dates

The individual events of the Tour are listed on the right. Places will be allotted on a first come first served basis. Online entry will open on 1st September 2019. Click on the event to enter.


Entries and Parental Consent

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.


Prizes

This year the Divisions will be based on handicap rather than age. There will most probably be three divisions but this will only be decided when we have a clearer idea of the distribution of handicaps that have entered the first event. Players will be advised of the handicap ranges in each division on the day of the first event, they will be placed into the appropriate Divison and will move between Divisions as their handicap goes down or up. Prizes - vouchers for coaching with a Bedfordshire Professional - will be awarded on the day to each division. 


Order of Merit

There will be an Order of Merit prize awarded at the end of the year based on points awarded for finishes in the Junior Tour events. Points will be awarded on the following basis:

1 Point for participation.

15 points for first place, 12 points for second place, 9 points for third place, 7 points for fourth place, 5 points for fifth place, 3 points for sixth place, 2 points for 7th place and 1 point for eighth 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 Stableford 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 Children and Young People Safeguarding Policy and Procedures.
