Optimist golf tournament

April 13, 2011

Clarkston Area Optimist Club hosts a Junior Golf Tournament Qualifier for boys and girls aged 9-18, Saturday, May 7, at the Fountains on Maybee Rd. Entry fee is $55, with a reduced fee of $40 for 9-10-11 year olds.

This is an “entry-level qualifier”: It may be the first competitive match for many of the younger golfers who must have a working knowledge of the game, including course management. There will be no on-site lessons given.

Entry is by pre-registration only, and forms are available at The Fountains Golf Course, at all Clarkston Schools or by contacting Optimist Junior Golf Chair, Sherry Regiani, at sregiani@comcast.net.

Winners and those who qualify by score will be eligible to advance to the District Tournament. This year it returns to Davison Country Club, June 21-22, where they will have an opportunity to qualify for the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in July at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
