2009 Junior Tournament Series


The Only Statewide Junior Golf Series in Ohio

This series consists of quality junior golf tournaments in different geographical areas of the state. All OGCOA tournaments will be conducted with uniform rules and age groups. These tournaments will be open to male and female junior players. A player may participate in all tournaments or just one - their choice!

New Increased Tournament Opportunities

For eleven years the Ohio Golf Course Owners Association (OGCOA) has operated a series of junior tournaments in Ohio, advancing the winners to a State Championship. Additionally, sixteen outstanding players from this series are advanced to a tow-day Ryder Cup type match with the best players from Pennsylvania.
Recognizing that in some areas of the state we were competing with excellent local junior tournaments at our member courses. The OGCOA has embarked on a cooperative arrangement to improve junior golf in Ohio.
Junior golfers will benefit from not having to choose from competing tournaments. Now with multiple tournaments sending their “best” to one quality state championship we can offer an outstanding competitive field.
Several qualifier tournaments will be recognized by the OGCOA. Tournament rules for the OGCOA sponsored events are outlined in this form. Cooperating local junior tournaments will select one of their tournaments as a “qualifier tournament”. Those “qualifier tournaments” are listed on our website.

State Championship

The Junior Golf Series will conclude with the State Championship July 20-21 at the championship course of Bunker Hill, Mentor, Ohio. State Champions will be announced and trophies presented at this invitational two-day event. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to both the male and female state champion in the 16-18 age groups.

Bi-State Championship

Ohio and Pennsylvania junior golfers will compete on August 3-4 in the 8th annual Bi-State Championship. Ten boys and girls from each state will be invited to participate in this Ryder Cup format tournament.  Golfers must have participated in at least one of the OGCOA sanctioned tournaments to be considered by the selection committee.  Windmill Lakes Golf Course, Ravenna, will host this prestigious event.

Tee Times

Tee times will not be mailed or faxed to individual golfers. Tee times will be posted on our website, five days in advance of each tournament. Please Click Here to view Tee Times.

Age limit and Divisions

Tournaments are open to all golfers. OGCOA sponsored tournaments will have three age groups for both boys and girls – 11-13, 14-5, and 16-18. Please review ages and grouping for each OGCOA member qualifier tournament.

Event Winners

Awards will be given to the first three place winners in each age group at each tournament. In each age group the number of trophies will be limited by the number of entrants. There must be at least three in an age group to have one trophy awarded, sin in the group for two trophies, and nine or more in the age group for three trophies. In case of a tie for the first three places, the tie will be settled by a sudden death play-off.

NCAA Rules

In order to help student athletes maintain compliance with current NCAA rules, “State Championship” scholarship winners may win more than once, but may only receive the scholarship once. Trophies will be awarded for any succeeding wins by the scholarship winners.


No refunds will be given unless the tournaments you select are already filled or are cancelled by OGCOA. You must arrive for your tee time or you will be disqualified. In the event of severe weather or extremely heavy rain, all age groups which finish nine holes will be deemed to have completed a tournament round. Winners will be determined on that basis.

Entry Fee

Please return a fully completed entry form with payment. All entries should be received at least 10 days before a tournament. Please note that entries fee may be different for OGCOA member qualifier tournaments.

Tournament Director

An OGCOA Tournament Director will be present at each OGCOA tournament site and shall have complete authority over all activities including tee times, pairings, etiquette, pace of play, rules, decisions and the determination of winners.

Playing Groups & Tee Times

These will be determined by the OGCOA. Tee times will be posted on approximately 5 days before each tournament. Competitors should arrive at the course and check-in hour before their assigned tee time or risk losing their posted tee time. Please Click Here to view Tee Times .


All tournaments will be conducted under the USGA Rules of Golf and the Ohio High School Athletic Association Rules. Local rules for specific courses will be provided at each tournament site as needed.

Caddies, Carts & Spectators

Competitors are not allowed to use caddies or power carts. Pull carts are permitted. Spectators/parents/coaches are permitted to follow competitors on the course, but must remain holes from the competitor and cannot have contact with the competitor on the course.


All players must use clubs and balls that conform to the USGA Rules of Golf or risk being disqualified.
