Lincoln Mercury, Your Lincoln Mercury Dealer Sponsor Michigan PGA Junior Tour

Michigan PGA Junior TourThe Michigan PGA is excited to announce that Lincoln Mercury and Your Lincoln Mercury Dealer is the new presenting sponsor of the Michigan PGA Junior Tour for 2010. Lincoln and its dealerships have shown continued support of the Michigan PGA Section as they are also the current sponsors of the Michigan Open.

The Michigan PGA Junior Tour is in its fifth year and registration is up and running. You can register by going to www.michigan.pga.com, and selecting Junior Tour. The tour is open to boys and girls ages 13-18 that are Michigan residents. There is a 13-15 division and a 16-18 division for both boys and girls.

A few of the courses new to the schedule this year include Flint Golf Club, The Orchards Golf Club in Washington, Michigan, Forest Lake Country Club in Bloomfield Hills and The Meadows at Grand Valley in Allendale. The schedule this year will consist of nine single-day events, three two-day events, and the tour championship at The Fortress in Frankenmuth. I think you will find all of the golf courses on the schedule to be of exceptional quality.

Once again this year the winners of the Tour Championship will receive an exemption into an AJGA event, along with a two-year exemption into the Michigan PGA Tournament of Champions. All of the two-day events will be rated by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard, www.njgs.com. In addition, Osprey Recreational Properties will be awarding scholarships to Michigan PGA Junior Tour members meeting their scholarship criteria.

Membership for the tour is $100 which includes a gift in the membership packet, awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd at all of the events as well Player of the Year in each division. The entry fee for the single day events are $50 and the two day events are $100.

The Michigan PGA Junior Tour will once again continue with the “Fall Series” as it has proven to be a success. This series will contain approximately six events in September and October. These fall tournament are an added benefit as there is no additional membership fee.
