GMGZJA Future Tour
The Glasshouse Mountains Golf Zone Junior Association (GMGZJA), with the support and assistance of the participating Golf Clubs, delivers a program of golf events for juniors known as the “Future Tour”.
2020 Season Calendar
This year the Future Tour is being held across 13 Golf Clubs on Sundays from 29 March to 18 October 2020. The Clubs hosting events are: Laidley, Woodford, Pine Rivers, Ashgrove, Bribie Island, Kilcoy, Maleny, Beerwah, Maroochy River, Pelican Waters, Redcliffe, Caboolture and Wantima.
The full list of Future Tour Event dates for 2020 is available here. Online entry for the events are made through the Events Calendar and generally open for entry about 2 weeks before the event. The tee times (draw) for each event is published in the same place, usually on the Friday evening prior to the event.
Who can play Future Tour events?
The Tour events are open to all boys and girls aged between 5 and 17 years old who have reached a minimum standard of golf skill to enable them to enjoy playing 3 or more holes of golf.
Ideally, children should be of a standard that enables them to make regular contact with the ball (not too many “airswings”) and have a basic understanding of the safety aspects of golf (e.g.not walking close to or in front of other players making a swing). All players under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
At this time competitions are offered in the following divisions: 3 holes (short), 6 holes (short), 9 holes and 18 holes. While all 18 hole event players must have official GA handicaps, players in the other divisions do not require official handicaps and will be handicapped based on the Future Tour rules.
Information on the distances used, rules for scoring and handicapping and other matters are contained in the 2020 Future Tour Conditions of Play which will be posted here in early 2020.
