(Joplin, MO) – Twin Hills Golf & Country Club will be hosting an American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) event from August 7 to 11. The AJGA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf.
The AJGA participants have to earn their way into each tournament based on Performance Stars and their finishes in state, regional, and national level junior tournaments as well as AJGA qualifiers and tournaments. These events bring the best of the best to the Joplin area from all over the country.
The impact for the community will be significant. These players and their families will stay in Joplin for five to six nights and will finish playing each day at around 3:00 pm, leaving time to explore Joplin’s great restaurants and family spaces.
Rick Brown with Roper Honda agrees that it will be a special event for Joplin and Twin Hills. So much so, he has pledged to be the title sponsor of the event. Satterlee Plumbing, Heat and Air has also pledged for sponsorship and without this type of support, these tournaments would not happen!
Additionally, Twin Hills will host a Junior-Am on Monday, August 8. This is your chance to tee it up with golf’s next generation while also contributing to a worthy cause. Just look at some of the alumni that have worked their career though the AJGA.
There will be a local qualifier for participants Monday, July 31. Twin Hills will offer three spots into the event as exemptions.
To get involved and or sign up for sponsorships or the Junior-Am please call 918.624.1611 or email Lance at firstname.lastname@example.org
