Director's Notes

The spring season brings LBJGA to the most exciting time of year!

I am pleased to announce that our annual fundraising events will culminate on Saturday June 6th with our D-day tournament, dinner, and live auction.

We do ask that all our members contribute to our efforts by selling tickets in our opportunity drawing. This year we will be giving away a new set of Callaway XR irons and carry bag. Each member is asked to be responsible for 25 tickets. The drawing will take place on June 6th before the live auction at Heartwell GC.

In addition, we will need assistance securing auction prizes, as well as players for our shotgun tournament. Juniors are encouraged to play in a group of adults. This tournament is famous for taking the usual layout at Heartwell and turning it on it's head! Players will need a full set of clubs!

Everyone is asked to participate in some way. Please remember our 24th annual D-day tournament is our only fundraiser of the year and enables us to keep the cost for our program low!

Drawing tickets will be distributed to our membership beginning Fri April 3rd and are due back on June 5th.

As summer draws closer please remember to include the LBJGA in your plans. This summer we will partner with the Long Beach Golf Festival for the Crosby Memorial Junior Championship at Recreation Park 9 & 18 on Wednesday June 24th. Entry forms are available on line or in the offices of the LBJGA and Golf Festival at 6730 E. Carson St. on the property at Heartwell GC.

For questions, concerns, or general information please call Sheri or myself at (562) 570-1272.

D-day 2015

As noted above, our D-day tournament, drawing, and live auction is our only fundraiser of the year. This event has always enabled the LBJGA to maintain our low costs to our members. But we do need everyone's help to make the event a success! Every member is asked to sell 25 tickets for our opportunity drawing for a set of Callaway irons. Please be responsible with our tickets and return them as sold by June 5th for the drawing on Saturday June 6th at 5pm.

We would also like to ask for donations of new merchandise and gift cards for our live auction. If you or any golfer you may know would like to play in the event an entry form is included on page 2 of this newsletter.

We will also need volunteers on the day of the event.

A lot of hard work goes into putting this fundraiser together, but D-day is one of the highlights of the LBJGA season.

LBJGA Dress Code

Members are to wear their uniforms on all Friday play days including special events. All junior golfers are to conduct themselves in a manner which acknowledges the etiquette, rules and history of the game of golf.

The uniform consists of:

  2. Pants or shorts of any solid color.
  3. Girls may wear skirts that reach mid-thigh in length.
  4. Golf or tennis shoes.

Extra shirts and sweatshirts are available for sale at the check-in table. As a junior golfer grows you may trade in your current uniform for a larger size.

Remember, if you are not in uniform you will not be allowed to participate.
