Thursday's competition day featured 9 holes of individual stroke play and the winner was Luciano DiLisciandro with a score of 43. Jack Gable won both the Longest Drive and Closest To The Pin competitions and after the first week, Jake Kowalski leads the Player of the Year points race!
The PJGA (Pitman Junior Golf Association) practices every Tuesday and plays a competition every Thursday. The program will conclude on August 17th with the annual Bring A Parent Tournament where the Player of the Year will be awarded.
The PJGA is a summer program for experienced junior golfers ages 13 through 17. This program will help to further develop golf skills through weekly practice, drills, playing and competition days. As always, all new participants will be required to pass a written rules and etiquette test as well as a playing ability test prior to being permitted entry into the league competition portion of the program. The tests are designed to indicate a minimum required level of knowledge and ability to play on the course without direct assistance during the summer’s program. The cost to register is $175 p/golfer and includes a PGC Junior Golf ID Card for discounted daily rates as well as all fees associated with the practice and competition days.
