2019 Fall Middle School Golf League registration to open.
Registration for the 2019 Middle School Golf League Fall Season opened July 27 and is scheduled to close on Aug 18. However, participation will be limited to the first 100 registrations. Play will begin August 25 and run through the end of October.
The Middle School Golf League is organized with parents registering through the South Gwinnett Athletic Association. Players are assigned teams based on middle school attendance and receive golf shirts with their middle school or feeder high school colors. Play during the Spring season will again be at Snellville’s Summit Chase Country Club and County Club of Gwinnett, Loganville’s Cedar Lake Golf Course Lawrenceville’s Collins Hill Golf Course and Dacula’s Trophy Clun of Apalachee and Monroe’s Bear Creek and Providence Golf Clubs.
The program teaches young golfers the fundamentals of golf and through team best ball play provides a positive environment where everyone participates no matter whether just a beginner or an accomplished junior player.
During the first weeks beginning golfers spend more time becoming more proficient at ball striking and understanding golf rules and etiquette. And then take that knowledge onto the golf course joining repeat Middle School Golf League players or the more advanced junior golfer playing as team members in the best ball “Lauderdale” format. Players play from forward or junior tees based on ability.
There will be four weeks of team best ball play for all including a week where a high school player plays with each team and then the middle school golfer is introduced to stroke play where they play their own ball for an individual score. The season culminates with a very popular Pitch, Putt and Drive competition, party and awards presentation.”
The league play and clinics are normally held on Sundays at 4 pm. Each team has a volunteer team “Marshall” that is responsible for team lineups and supervises the play on the course. Parents are welcome to walk or ride carts along the course as spectators but must remain on the cart paths.
At the close of registration and before the opening clinics a parent orientation will be held with more detailed information about the season schedule, play and courses and information about golf equipment and clubs and a Q&A session with League Director Les Witmer and SGAA ‘s Tim Gains.
