The Southern Ohio PGA is excited to announce, beginning in 2011 a new Junior Tour will be available for youth looking to gain quality experience in 18-hole and 9-hole events. The new SOPGA Futures Tour is designed to help prepare players for what they will face as they advance to the SOPGA Junior Tour, our next competitive level. This level provides premier junior golf tournaments with a focus on course experience as well as etiquette and the Rules. Both, 9-hole and 18-hole competitions are offered at this level with some events held on short courses. The top 10 Players at each event earn points for the Player of the Year honor and the top 3 players in each division receive awards at the season summary banquet. Ages: 7-13 Events are broken into Boys and Girls Divisions with Age Groups 7-9 (9-hole), 10-11 (18-hole) and 12-13 (18-hole). Juniors between the ages of 7-9, who produce an endorsement letter from their PGA Professional, may compete in 18-hole Futures Tour competitions, however Juniors may not play up from the Futures Tour to the Junior Tour. To Register for the SOPGA Futures Tour follow the "How to Register" steps located under the "Membership" tab. Membership Registration will open January 1, 2011.
