Grouping, Teeing Grounds, Course Yardages

  1. The age of each Junior Golfer shall be determined based on the year of birth. The Junior Golfer shall be assigned into the age group category, which corresponds to his/her year of birth.
  2. Participants may be required to furnish proof of age via government issued photo ID or document.
  3. The Committee may accept participants with higher handicaps or without handicaps as its discretion. The Committee has the absolute discretion to change the age group categories, the teeing areas and course yardages as deemed fit.
  4. A player may be allowed to play in a higher age group with agreement from the Committee, but he/she must remain in the said age group for the same year. One of the criteria for moving up an age group is that the Junior Golfer must play in the previous tournament with scores of +4 or lower from par for 18 holes (or +2 or lower from par for 9 holes) and subject to the Committee’s approval.
  5. Junior Golfers can only participate in one age group category at any one time, unless specified otherwise. Where Junior Golfers may be eligible to play in more than one category, they may do so only when the same teeing areas are used for the different categories involved.
