District 1

Welcome to District One 2018

Volunteers – the driving engine of WJGA. L to R; Adam Hagen, Paige Rachor Hagen, Mark Rachor, Pam Rachor, Doug Goldie, Dave White, Craig Koznek, Bill Hehn, Tyler Johnsen, Mike and Suellen Hamm.

Thank you for choosing to participate in the WJGA. Mark and I are excited to meet our new junior members and look forward to seeing our returning players and their families again this summer.

We are extremely fortunate to have the support of amazing courses this year. Please read the tournament page; it contains important details about dress code expectations, practice facilities, tees, and more. Please read the rules and responsibilities for both players and parents, along with any current changes in WJGA policies. Also, be sure to read the WJGA Code of Conduct, player and gallery rules, dress code, and tournament withdrawal and refund information carefully. Please note that there will be no entries accepted into any sub-district tournament within 7 days of the tournament.  We depend on our families volunteering to enjoy a successful season, and especially need help at scoreboards, scoring and registration.

We suggest players check out the USGA Rules of Golf homepage where they can take fun rules quizzes and watch informative videos – knowledge is power!

Please feel free to call us if you have any questions. See you in June!

Pam and Mark Rachor
