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”.

The 2019 season of the Future Tour is now underway and is 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 2019 Future Tour Rules which may be downloaded here.
