At Washington Junior Golf, we are dedicated to supporting junior golfers by providing a comprehensive,
competitive program which helps build character and sportsmanship, providing lifelong benefits.
From the 2016 President, Jerry Fehr
WOW, 2016 was a great year for WJGA under the innovative leadership of Tyler Johnsen. More members, more tournaments and MORE FUN.
And very special congratulations go to our gold medal Boys Junior Americas Cup team that won the event in Mexico for a very happy team captain Jim von Doehren.
As usual, volunteers are so vital to the success of WJGA. Most players and parents are not fully aware of the many details that must be dealt with to conduct a golf tournament. If your district is short of volunteers please step up and call your Tournament Director. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
From the 2016 Executive Director, Tyler Johnsen
Thank you to all of our wonderful WJGA Tournament Directors, Rules Officials, volunteers and parents for a great 2016 season. All of your hard work and dedication are what makes WJGA one of the best junior golf programs in the country. 2016 marked the WJGA’s 40th anniversary season and I want to extend a sincere thank you to the Washington State Golf Association for their continued suppport of our program since the very beginning.
Bellingham G&CC hosted a terrific State Championship this year and a big thank you needs to go out to Jon and Tessa Rawitzer for doing a fantastic job as our tournament chairs. Congratulations to Sam Warkentin for becoming the first 3-time overall boys’ State Champion and to Brittany Kwon for capturing the girls’ title. Also, congratulations to Travis Kay and Julia Bordeaux for capturing the overall titles at Clarkston G&CC at our inaugural Tournament of Champions in late August.
We look forward to seeing many of you this fall at our 2nd Annual Turkey Shoot Scramble and our Inaugural Winter Classic which will be played at Chambers Bay.
