Junior War of the Rose
Junior War of the Rose at Hershey Country Club
Since 2004, the last event of the season has been a match play event for the best players in the top divisions. The Junior War of the Rose will pit the best players from the Boys Gold Division and the Girls Gold Division against each other in a Ryder Cup style match play format. The players will form two teams and play to win points for their team.
The event will consist of 3 matches for each player.
Morning - 9 hole Fourball match (Better Ball of Partners)
Morning – 9 hole Foursomes match (Partners Alternate shot)
Afternoon – 18 hole Individual match
Event Field: Each team will include 8 Boys Gold and 2 Girls Gold players.
Eligibility: To be eligible to play on the Junior War team, players must have completed at least one event in the Gold Division and must have completed at least 5 LCJGT tournaments. They must be in good standing with the Tour following the Tour Championship.
Field Determination: Players will be invited to participate in the Junior War of the Rose based on scoring average in the Gold Division following the LCJGT Tour Championship. Invitations will be made starting with the lowest scoring average in each division. If any of the players with the best scoring averages decline the invitation, we will invite additional players using the same criteria.
Team Selection: Once the field is set, the Junior War Committee will select the players to play on each team with the goal of creating two evenly matched teams for a highly competitive event.
Each team member will get a golf polo shirt with the Jr War Logo and a golf hat with the players name embroidered on the side. Lunch is provided to players. We plan to have a team dinner following the event for players and parents.
