JUNIOR TOUR OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FAQS


Junior Tour of Northern California FAQs


Seven years ago, the NCGA Junior tour was founded. Four years ago, it aligned with the NCPGA to form one tour where junior golfers could compete against the best players at an affordable price. The Junior tour of Northern California boasts a year-round schedule of 25 events. The Junior Tour would like to thank Capitol Insurance Group for being its premier sponsor.


Q: WHO CAN PLAY ON THE JUNIOR TOUR OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA? A: To play in a Junior Tour of Northern Califor- nia tournament you must meet the following requirements: • Have a current NCGA membership • Pay Junior Tour membership fee of $40 • Take mandatory rules and etiquette curriculum


• Have an established Handicap Index at the time of entry into the tournament


• Be 18 or younger • Have not started college


Before you decide to play on the Junior Tour of Northern California, be aware that we usually play courses that are between 6,300-7,000 yards for the boys championship fl ight, 5,800- 6,500 for the boys fi rst fl ight, 5,700-6,300 for the girls championship fl ight and 5,000-5,500 for the girls fi rst fl ight. Some younger players may not be ready for courses this long so it is recommended that they wait until you think they can handle this.


Q: HOW ARE TOURNAMENTS ORGANIZED? A: Tournaments are 36 holes over two days. Our preferred model for tournaments is to have the fi rst 18 in the afternoon and the second 18 in the morning. This way, families can travel and play on the same day and save travel costs. This is not always possible due to the needs of the golf courses that are providing us their facilities at reduced rates. When the course has a driving range, range balls are also included. Lunches may be provided at selected events.


Q: WHAT DOES IT COST? A: The cost is $95 for the majority of our tour- naments; however, for some events the tour- nament fee may vary depending on venue. The tournament fee includes golf and range balls for two days. There is also a $40 annual membership fee. If there are fi nancial issues that make it diffi cult for you to pay these fees, please contact the NCGA at (831) 625-4653 for information on possible support and complete the fi nancial hardship request form.


Q: HOW DO I REGISTER FOR TOURNAMENTS? A: Please sign in on the home page (www.jtnc. org), which takes you to the JTNC registration page. Ensure that you have completed the three required actions to register for tourna- ments: paid Junior Tour membership fee, have a current NCGA membership and have taken the mandatory quiz.


Q: WHY DOES THE REGISTRATION SITE NOT LET ME REGISTER ON FRIDAY? A: General registration usually opens on Monday mornings at 8 a.m. unless Monday is a holiday in which case it will open on Tuesday at 8 a.m. However, there is a registration period that lasts from the Friday before through Sunday

evening. This registration period is for players who have won a tournament in the previous 365 days. By winning, they earn the right to pre- register. Between Friday and Sunday, they will see the registration box next to the tournament, but others won’t. The registration dates on the system will refl ect this period until Sunday.


Q: HOW DO I WITHDRAW FROM A TOUR- NAMENT? WHAT’S THE REFUND POLICY FOR WITHDRAWALS? A: If you need to withdraw from a tournament you may withdraw online up to a week in ad- vance. After one week, online withdrawals are not available and you must call the NCGA offi c- es to withdraw. Failure to notify the NCGA will cause the player to be listed as a NO SHOW, resulting in a ONE-YEAR SUSPENSION FROM ALL NCGA EVENTS. Refunds: Refund less $10 if requested prior to the registration closing date. A 50% refund if the withdrawal is after the registration closing date, but before two business days of the tournament. No refunds within two business days of the tournament.


Q: ARE TOURNAMENT RESULTS SENT TO JUNIOR GOLF SCOREBOARD?


A: Yes, we send results for all tournaments to Junior Golf Scoreboard for ranking. Junior Golf Scoreboard asks for a player’s high school graduation year. Please ensure this is completed on your registration profi le.


Q: DOES THE AJGA RECOGNIZE JUNIOR TOUR OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TOURNAMENTS? A: Yes.


Q: DOES JUNIOR TOUR OF NORTHERN CALI- FORNIA HAVE ITS OWN POINTS PROGRAM? A: Yes, a Player of the Year honor is awarded after the Tour Championship in July to the highest-ranking boy and girl.


Q: HOW DOES A JUNIOR ACCEPT FINAN- CIAL ASSISTANCE FROM AN OUTSIDE PARTY AND KEEP HIS OR HER AMATEUR STATUS? A: The USGA has a paper on its website that describes the rules for fi nancial assistance for juniors. This only covers things from the USGA’s Amateur status rules. You should also check with the NCAA to see what rules it might have regarding juniors accepting assistance.
