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 2017 President, Jerry Fehr
The 2017 season was a great success, including the hosting of the Junior Americas Cup matches at The Home Course in DuPont, WA. We thank the Washington State Golf Association for their strong support of this event, and the City of DuPont for stepping up with financial support, as well. A special thank you goes to our District 6 Directors, Jim and Jennifer von Doehren for their tireless efforts during this week long event. And we can’t overlook former WJGA D3 player and now Head Professional, Justin Gravatt and his hard-working crew at The Home Course! A wonderful week for everyone! Well done!
And I applaud the great performances by our office staff of Tyler Johnsen and Chris Curtiss, and the fine support they are provided by our loyal rules officials and all WJGA volunteers.
From the 2017 Executive Director, Tyler Johnsen
With over 1,000 active members and an incredible group of loyal volunteers, 2017 was another great year for WJGA! Our junior golf program would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our Tournament Directors, Rules Officials and parent volunteers. Parents please consider reaching out to your local Tournament Directors if you’re interested in volunteering next summer.
A big thank you needs to go out to The Home Course and Washington State Golf Association for hosting this year’s Junior Americas Cup. Jim and Jennifer von Doehren did a wonderful job making sure it was a memorable week for all participants.
This season was capped off by a fantastic State Championship week in District 4 at Meadow Springs CC, Black Rock Creek GC and Columbia Point GC. Thank you to our tournament chairman, Craig Anderson and the Meadow Springs CC staff and membership for making us feel so welcome. Congratulations to Sean Kato and Lauryn Nguyen for capturing the overall State Championship titles and to all our State Champions this year!
And finally, a big congratulations to WJGA member Joe Highsmith, who at age 17 became the youngest champion in Washington State Men’s Amateur history this summer.
