2013 KJGA Program Guide
Welcome to the 28th year of the KJGA in 2013. This program is designed to offer competitive golf for juniors across the state of Kansas.
For a nominal membership and entry fee, a junior golfer under the age of 19 or recently graduated from high school and not yet enrolled in college, will be eligible to compete and earn qualifying points in four tournaments in their section of Kansas. New members also receive a KJGA bag tag, information on various tournaments and junior programs throughout our state.
Additionally, KJGA players have the opportunity to earn points toward representing their section in the KJGA Junior Section Team Championship and the Junior Match Play Championship for the top 16 players in the state. The top eight junior golfers based on the points list will comprise the 2013 Kansas Junior Cup Team. This team will compete against their Nebraska counterparts on August 6-8, 2013, at Champions Run in Omaha, NE. The junior cup point list will also be used to determine the 2013 KGA Junior Player of the Year.
Open to junior golfers who are under the age of 19 or recently graduated from high school and not yet enrolled in college. Your age on June 1, 2013, determines the age group of competition for the entire summer program. Also, if you have attended a college or junior college, you are NOT eligible to participate. Example: If you turn 16 on May 20, 2013, you compete in the 16 and over age division; if you turn 16 on July 1, 2013, you compete in all events in the 14-15 age division.
Note: The 54th KGA Junior Amateur Championship, June 10-13, 2013, at Quail Ridge Golf Course, has different age eligibility requirements (18 or younger as of first day of championship or recently graduated from high school). Also, if you have attended a college or junior college you are NOT eligible.
Must be a resident of the State of Kansas with one exception. If you reside outside the State of Kansas, but live in a bordering state you may join the KJGA and compete in the section events and be eligible for Junior Player of the Year, Junior Match Play and Kansas Junior Cup teams. If you live in the State of Kansas during the summer only, you are not considered a resident of Kansas.
