District 5

 

 

Long time District 5 Director and WJGA president, Allen Hatley

Welcome to the 2024 WJGA season!

As always, a big welcome to our new and returning junior players! Providing competitive, fun events for everyone is important to us!

Important: Events open to all our statewide players will be available for sign up at registration on the WJGA website on Friday, March 1, 2024, at 9 A.M. Please check the WJGA tournament schedule for the numerous statewide golfing events and sign up for these events immediately as these events can be filled within hours after registration opens. These events provide opportunities for competitive players to earn points for AJGA events, the America’s Cup, and the Hogan Cup Teams.

Regarding our District tournament, we have planned for our host hotel for Districts to be at the Residence Inn Marriott in Pullman close to the Palouse Ridge Golf Course.  If you stay there, be sure to mention that you are a WJGA participant as we have negotiated a special rate for our group.  Our district tournament which is a two-day tournament will be held on Monday and Tuesday, July 15-16, 2024.  A player must qualify for this by playing in sub-district events.

If your child is in the 8-11 and 12-13 age groups, we are requiring parents to be walking scorers for both days at our District tournament that is held in Pullman at Palouse Ridge Golf Course. This is the same requirement as for each sub-district.

We need your assistance to make this an awesome year.   Please read the rules and responsibilities for both players and parents, along with any current changes in WJGA policies.  Be sure to read the player and gallery rules, dress code, and tournament withdrawal and refund information carefully.  This website was designed specifically with you in mind and hopefully, will be a valuable resource for registration, available tournaments, tee times, and points.

If you are a parent with player(s) in the 8-11 or 12-13 age divisions, it is important that you read the walking scorer information below. This outlines our District’s requirements for your child to participate in District 5.

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.

Sincerely,

Allen and Karen Hatley

Walking Scorer Requirement

**IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS for parents of all 8 to 13 year old golfers**

Without our parent volunteers, we would not be able to have a program that runs smoothly. All 8-11 and 12-13 age division participants require their parent to walk and score in the group with them.  This is done to assist your junior in making sure scores are accurate.  They are required to keep their own scores as well.  Here are some items you should be aware of:

  1.  As a parent, you are required to walk at each event that your child participates in during the season or to find a substitute to replace you.  If for any reason you find that you cannot make it to the tournament, you are responsible to find your own walking scorer replacement.  You will be assigned to the group with your child.

*** WJGA reserves the right to deny any player from participating in a tournament if this requirement cannot be met.
