Week 2 (June 11th) Junior pairings

Parents please note - We are still doing our best to make sure the kids are paired up with their friends. Quite a few kids asked to play with the same group of kids. We can only send out 4 players at a time so we have tried to pair these requests back to back and encourage the kids to mix up groups each week so that no one feels excluded from the group. 

We have some new faces that we have paired up by age for now because we aren't exactly sure who else they might know. Barring a few minor changes, please plan on these starting times and pairings going forward for the remaining weeks. 

Upon registration we had a lot of people request a 9:00-10:00 start time which will unfortunately be impossible to accommodate based on the amount of players that have signed up to play. In years past we started the older kids first and had the youngest kids teeing off last so that they wouldn’t get steamrolled by the older kids. I’d prefer to continue with this but it creates some carpool issues for those with siblings who are also participating

I understand that the heat is a concern for some parents, however with the proper preparations your kids will be able to survive the heat. Below are some ideas to keep them cool and make sure they enjoy their round 
  • Play ready golf. They should be able to get in and out in less than 2 hrs and 15 minutes if they are encouraging the other kids in their group to keep up with the group ahead of them.
  • Stay hydrated. Send them with a water bottle. We have a fountain that they can top off their bottles on hole #3 and hole #7
  •  Encourage them to stand in the shade while they are waiting for the group ahead of  them to get out of reach
  • Also don’t forget to have them wear a hat and sunscreen!
