Dear Players and Parents,
Itís time for another fabulous WJGA golf season! We need your assistance
to make this happen successfully. First, please become familiar with the
WJGA website. As always, the rules and responsibilities for both players
and parents can be found there, along with any current changes in WJGA
policies. And, be sure to read the spectator rules, dress code, and
tournament withdrawal information carefully. Parents, if you plan to be
on the course observing a player, use the same dress code as the player
and you will be in great shape! This website was designed specifically
with players and parents in mind and hopefully, will be your valuable
One important website posting will be your tee times. In District 5, you
may check for it at least 48 hours in advance of each tournament.
We frequently are asked what tees the various age groups will play.
Generally speaking, these are the tees that we will use:
Boys 14-17 Blue
Boys 12-13 White
Girls 14-17 White
Girls 12-13 Red
Boys and Girls 8-11 Red
Parents of 8- to 13-year old golfers
As you know, we have parents as walking scorers for all of the 8-11 and
12-13 age divisions. This is done to assist the juniors in making sure
their scores are accurate. They are required to keep their own scores as
well. Here are some items you should be aware of:
1. Cyndi Kelly will be organizing all of the walking scorers. She will
contact you to arrange the times that you will be walking. You may reach
her at 509/290-1671 during the season. Additionally, you can email her
at firstname.lastname@example.org or TEXT her with your response. It is critical
that you respond to the walking scorer request as soon as possible.
2. As a parent, you are required to walk twice during the season. If you
have taken specific days off from work to score, please call Cyndi with
that information ASAP to ensure she assigns you for those days.
3. You will not be walking in the group with your child.
4. Cyndi will be calling you prior to each tournament so you will be
aware of when you are being expected to walk. I ask that you extend her
every courtesy for it is a difficult job to coordinate all of the
5. If for any reason you find that you cannot make it to the tournament,
please call Cyndi directly to let her know so she can make other
arrangements. Please do not wait until the night before as it is
difficult to replace scorers.
We personally ask everyone to do their share of the walking. It will
allow every parent to have an opportunity to watch their children play
in some of the events. Thank you again on behalf of all of us.
We are looking forward to another great season with our outstanding
group of young people. It is always our pleasure to spend part of the
summer with them, and what better sport than golf to have fun in.
Allen and Karen Hatley
