Summer Tours

RVJGA and US Kids Roanoke Tour

We have the Spring season behind us and it is time to start thinking and preparing for the Summer Tours.

Several of our juniors will be preparing for the US Kids World Championship in Pinehurst.  1500 Kids from all over the world will be going to Pinehurst in August and Roanoke will be well represented.  To get an idea about the US Kids and the World Championship, I would recommend renting the movie "The Short Game" on Netflix.  It is a great movie to watch with the family and to use as a motivational tool to inspire your junior.  The US Kids Local Tour is great opportunity for junior golf in the Roanoke Valley and want to encourage everyone to participate.  It appeals to the junior that is starting to play competitive golf and the more experienced player that wants to qualify for state, regional and world championships.

 

This summer we will be offering four RVJGA Tournaments for the younger age groups and eight tournaments for the 15-17 Age Group to help prepare those kids for the high school season.  The registration process for the RVJGA Tournaments will be handled through this website (www.RVJGA.com) and the US Kids will be handled through www.USKidsGolf.com.
