District 5

Welcome to District Five 2018

Dear Players and Parents,

The Bloom twins from District 5. Can you tell which one is Charlotte and which one is Libby? Neither can any of us!

Welcome to our 2018 season! Be sure to check the WJGA website for information on your age group and events open to all our statewide players. Also, events open to all of our statewide players will be available for sign up. These will provide opportunities for competitive players to earn points for the America’s Cup Team, as well as, the Hogan Cup Team. Please sign up early for these events if you are interested, as they may not be available once the field is full.

We have made arrangements for our host hotel for Districts to be at the Residence Inn Marriott which is located in Pullman, close to the Palouse Ridge Golf Course. If you plan to stay there, be sure to mention that you are a WJGA participant as we have negotiated a special rate for our group. And, please note that our district tournament will be on Monday and Tuesday, July 23/24 this year.  

As always, we need your assistance to make this an awesome year.   Please read the rules and responsibilities for both players and parents, along with any current changes in WJGA policies. And, be sure to read the player and gallery rules, dress code, and tournament withdrawal and refund information carefully. This website was designed specifically with you in mind and hopefully, will be a valuable resource for available tournaments, tee times, points, and registration.

We are looking forward to another great season with our outstanding group of young people. It is always our pleasure to spend part of the summer with them, and what better sport than golf to have fun in.

Sincerely,

Allen and Karen Hatley

**IMPORTANT** - Walking Scorer Policy

Walking Scorer Policy

**IMPORTANT**
Parents of 8- to 13-year old golfers

As you know, we have parents as walking scorers for all of the 8-11 and 12-13 age divisions. This is done to assist the juniors in making sure their scores are accurate. They are required to keep their own scores as well. Here are some items you should be aware of:

1. Cyndi Kelly will be organizing all of the walking scorers. If you need to change the dates you scheduled yourself for at registration you can contact her at 509-290-1671 or you can email her at cyndijkelly@yahoo.com .

2. As a parent, you are required to walk twice during the season or once if you are only playing in one tournament.  If you have taken specific days off from work to score, please call Cyndi with that information ASAP to ensure she assigns you for those days.

3. You will not be walking in the group with your child.

4. Walking scorers’ assignments will be posted ONLINE. Parents will be responsible for checking for their assigned dates and times. You are asked to check in with Cyndi Kelly one-half hour prior to your assigned scoring time. Every group needs a walking scorer for your child to play so please be diligent in checking your scoring assignments dates ONLINE.

5. If for any reason you find that you cannot make it to the tournament that you are assigned to, you are responsible to find your own walking scorer replacement. Please call Cyndi directly to let her know who your replacement will be so that there will be a smooth transition.

We personally ask everyone to do their share of the walking. It will allow every parent to have an opportunity to watch their children play in some of the events. Thank you again on behalf of all of us.
