NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire County Junior Golf Program is open to boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 18 who are members of an Allied Golf Club.
The participants compete in divisions determined by their age. Categories include 13 and under, 14 and 15, and 16 and 17 years of age. There are six events to be held on Mondays throughout the summer with registration at the host club scheduled for 8 to 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
The host club will provide a short clinic on either the rules of golf or golf etiquette before players begin providing there is time. The fee is $10 per player, which covers prizes and lunch. The field is limited to 90 players. It is important that the boys and girls sign up at their respective home clubs in advance and that their golf professional call their names and ages into the host club by the Friday before the event.
Proper Golf attire is required.
A point system is in place for participation in these events to help determine the champion for the various age divisions, therefore it is equally important that the participant notify the host club if they cannot play, which will allow someone else an opportunity and not invoke the deduction in points required for not showing up.
