Academy Junior League

 

The Academy Junior League is a fun, competitive league open to junior golfers (boys and girls) of all abilities in Grades 6-12.  The league will be held on three Tuesdays in June and July (June 7, 14, and 21 and July 5, 12, 19) beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Bunker Hill Golf Course in Medina, Ohio.  Players will be divided into three divisions based on ability.  A point system used for scoring will be in place to ensure equitable competition.  

Divisions:

  • Par Division - for players with an average score of 56+ (for 9 holes), will play 9 holes each week

  • Birdie Division - for players with an average score of 50-55 (for 9 holes) will play 18 holes each week

  • Eagle Division – for players with an average score under 99 (for 18 holes), will play 18 holes each week

  • Golfers may be re-assigned to a different division based on weekly point averages as the league progresses.  Note that a Par Division player will need to shoot 50 or under during league play to move into Birdie since they will be teeing from shortened yardages (see below).

 

 

League Point System:  Points per hole will be awarded as follows:

 

Par Division

  • Double Bogey +  1 pts

  • Bogey – 2 pts

  • Par – 3 pts

  • Birdie – 4 pts

  • Eagle – 5 pts

Birdie and Eagle Divisions

  • Double Bogey +  0 pts

  • Bogey – 1 pts

  • Par – 2 pts

  • Birdie – 3 pts

  • Eagle – 4 pts

Tees:

  • Par Division players will play from the 250 yds on Par 5's, 200 yds  on Par 4's, and gold tees on Par 3's.  Any Par Division players shooting 60+ will tee from 100-150 yards on every hole.

  • Birdie and Eagle Divisions: Females and all 6th graders (male and female) will play from the gold tees.  All others will play from the white tees.

To maintain Pace of Play, players will pick up at Par +3.  Rounds are to be completed in 2 hours for 9 holes and 4 hours for 18 holes.  If a group falls behind, they will be directed to skip a hole to keep pace with the group in front of them.

 

Proper golf attire is required.  Lunch will be provided.  Participants who register for all three league dates in the month will receive a hat.    

Academy Junior Golf Tour

 

The Academy Junior Golf Tour will be held on the last Tuesday of June and July, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Bunker Hill Golf Course in Medina, Ohio.  This tournament is open to all golfers, boys and girls in Grades 6-12.  Please note that the Academy Junior Golf Tour is a separate event from the Academy Junior Golf League.  As such, participation in the league is not required to play in the tournaments.  Additionally, our league golfers are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the tournaments.

 

Players will be separated into three divisions (Par, Birdie and Eagle) based on average scores.  

 

Par Division will play 9-holes, while the Birdie and Eagle Division will play 18 holes.  Scoring will be based on the same point system used for the Academy Junior League (see above).

 

Proper golf attire is required.  Participants will receive a hat and lunch.  Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each division.  

 

Additional Guidelines for League and Tournament Play

 

  • All golfers must sign in at the registration table by 11:15 a.m. (15 minutes prior to tee time) so that we can assemble groups and confirm groups with the starter.  Any golfer who arrives past this time will not play.

  • If you will not be able to make a league date, please notify us no later than the day prior to play.

  • All golfers must have a release form signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to play.  A pdf version of this form will be emailed to after we receive your registration.  

  • Each player must have their own clubs.  Please remember to bring sufficient balls, tees, and ball markers. 

  • Please be prepared for the weather.  Play will not be suspended or shortened due to heat, cold, or rain, unless the course makes the decision to stop play.  Please note that play will be suspended if lightning is detected in the area.  We have experienced extreme heat conditions in the past.  It will be the parents call as to whether or not they want their child to participate in league or tournament play in hot conditions.  If they play, please make sure that they are prepared with plenty of water or sports drink, hat, etc.
