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 2018 President, Jerry Fehr
Wow, another great year for WJGA in its 42nd year of operation.
Our success as one of the top junior golf programs in the country is brought about by the outstanding leadership and innovative thinking of our Executive Director Tyler Johnsen.
And Tyler is only able to make things work because of the great support he receives from Director of Operations Chris Curtiss and the many District Directors, rules officials and other volunteers who devote so much time to WJGA.
Thank you to you all!
From the 2018 Executive Director, Tyler Johnsen
Thank you to the many players, families and volunteers that helped make 2018 another terrific year for WJGA. With nearly 1,100 members this year WJGA was once again one of the largest junior golf associations in the country and our program would not be possible without the volunteer efforts from our amazing team of Tournament Directors and Rules Officials across the state.
A big thank you also needs to go out to our State Championship host courses this year, Fairwood G&CC, Meridian Valley CC and Riverbend GC. This marked the sixth time that Fairwood G&CC has played a role in hosting the WJGA State Championship and the history of support from the membership and management at all three host courses is beyond belief. Congratulations to Clayton Thatcher and Adithi Anand for capturing the overall State Championship titles and to all of our state champions this year.
And finally, congratulations to WJGA member Ian Siebers, who at age 16 qualified for match play at this summer’s U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach; finishing in 7th place in stroke play qualifying amongst 312 of the best amateur golfers in the world.
Thank you again to everyone for a great 2018 season!
