The 2013 RVJGA Spring Tour is set to kickoff Saturday, March 3.
The Roanoke Valley Junior Golf Association’s Spring Tour sponsored by Scott Robertson Memorial Tournament will begin the 2013 season at Ashley Plantation on March 3. The tour has over 120 members and has been a great stepping stone for area junior golfers to take their game to the collegiate level. Since the tour started in 2000 it has produced over 40 collegiate golfers, many on scholarships. The RVJGA is an unique program that is supported by the area’s PGA Professionals. For more information you may contact your local PGA Professional or Tommy Joyce @ email@example.com. Players may also receive information and register for tournaments on the RVJGA website (www.RVJGA.com).
Players compete in various age groups and the course is set up at different yardages for each division. New for 2013 is expanded age groups including a girls 7& Under age group and a Boys 6 & Under.
