Seasonal Age Groups 2018

 

All players are categorised to compete within their specific age group category. We recognise the importance of ‘relative age effect’ in sport and as such competitors are placed into their appropriate age group. We also we operate separate key ‘cut off dates’ within the year where players are re-categorised by age groups as per below:-

In addition we operate age appropriate tees and adjustment of the par by age group.

All age groups compete on best gross scores basis only for the key prizes. This runs in line with most premier junior tours and major junior championships worldwide.

The Tour Directors and management team will ensure the events and activities will be professionally organised and managed to the highest possible standards in a safe and friendly environment.

Throughout the year (February to December) we stage a fairly equal number of tournaments (1-day and 2-day) spread throughout our 6 key regions:-
