Interclub Junior Golf Series
The Buffalo District Golf Association has revamped the former team concept of
Inter-club Junior Golf. The new format will provide junior golfers with the opportunity to compete in 3 individual stroke play events hosted by BDGA Member Clubs. Players will compete for points to earn a spot to respresent the BDGA at the annual Williamson Cup tournament as well as the Interdistrict Championship.
There are 13 boys' tournaments that will count towards the Boys' Junior and Sub-Junior "Player of the Year". The first 11 events will determine who gets invited to compete in the Williamson Cup (top-3 juniors, the fourth is a committee pick) and Tri-Cities (top-6 juniors and sub-juniors).
To be eligible, players must play in 2 of 3 BDGA junior majors (BDGA Jr. stroke play, Jr. match play, and/or Erie County Amateur) and 2 of 3 BDGA IJGS events. For complete terms and conditions, including the points schedule, click here.
