Junior League rewards young golfers with instruction, prizes

NEW — 1 p.m. Aug. 27, 2015

On Sunday afternoons during warmer months, the Mount Si Golf Course hosts a golf tournament designed for learning about golf tournaments.

The Mount Si Golf Course Junior League is a weekly tournament where young golfers get to engage in the finer points of the game.

“It’s a good teaching tool for the kids to learn how to act and how to participate,” said Ron Lee, a PGA professional at Mount Si for the past 25 years.

Lee started the Junior League four years ago. He wanted young golfers to have an easy and fun way to learn how to navigate tournament play. Rules and etiquette are more important in a tournament than in a casual game, and Junior League helps young golfers get comfortable with that style of play. Read more »
