Welcome to the 2015 season for the Long Beach Junior Golf Association!
In review, 2014 was truly our best season ever. We had our largest membership in our 23 year history, and we had more golfers play in all our events, including our new glow-ball tournaments for Halloween and the Holiday season.
I would like to begin this season by reviewing our policies and rules, so please note everything stated below and throughout this newsletter.
To all of our parents and grandparents who bring our junior golfers to our Friday events:
LBJGA Golfers must be in proper uniform.
LBJGA Golfers must pay $6 in cash each week.
LBJGA Golfers must be on time!
If you need help or have questions please ask at the Friday check-in table or call the office at (562) 570-1272.
Sheri and I have a lot of plans for the 2015 season. Our first special event will be the St. Patrick's Partners Scramble on March 15th at 11am. The entry form is on page 2, if you need more forms they will be available upon request.
Please remember that our annual D-day Tournament and Live Auction will be played on Saturday June 6th at 1pm with dinner following golf. We will need everyone's help to make this event a success. Drawing tickets will be given to each junior golfer beginning April 3rd. This event is our only fundraising event of the year!
The year will go by quickly so stay involved by visiting our new website at LBJGA.com.
2015 Policies & Rules
Effective January 9, 2015 our weekly fee is $6. The City of Long Beach raised the junior green fees to $6 in October of 2014 but was kind enough to give us a grace period until January. We would appreciate exact change as often as possible.
Please remember LBJGA members must check-in at the LBJGA table at least 10 minutes before their scheduled tee time. If a junior golfer is late the fee will now be $8 per round. Playing on a stand-by basis is also $8. It is important to LBJGA and Heartwell GC that our tee times run on time, therefore all of our golfers must be on time. Our relationship with Heartwell GC is very important to our success.
Also, please remember our dress code and uniform policy when preparing for Friday play days. All members must present themselves in the proper LBJGA uniform or they will not be allowed to participate. New uniforms and hats are available each week before 6pm.
Please note our complete dress code and uniform policy on the following page. If you have questions please ask on Fridays or call (562) 570-1272.
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:
- The LBJGA issued red shirt. Tucked in at all times.
- Pants or shorts of any solid color.
- Girls may wear skirts that reach mid-thigh in length.
- Golf or tennis shoes.
- The LBJGA issued cap or visor, worn with the bill facing forward.
- Hair must be neatly combed.
- LBJGA issued sweatshirt.
- Blue jeans, denims, sweat pants, baggy cargo pants, board shorts, basketball shorts and ‘skinny jeans’ may not be worn at any time.
- Only the LBJGA caps and visors may be worn with the bill facing forward.
- Uniforms must be clean and not wrinkled.
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.
