The Berkshire County Junior Golf Program is open to boys and girls who are members of an Allied Golf Club and between the ages of 11‑18.
The participants compete in divisions determined by their age. Categories include 13 and under, 14 and 15, and 16 and over. There are six events to be held on Monday's throughout the summer with registration at the host club scheduled for 8 to 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9. There are optional tee times starting at 8:30.
The host club will provide a short clinic on either the rules of golf or golf etiquette before players begin providing there is time. The fee is $10 – 15 per player, which covers prizes and lunch. The field is limited to 90 players. It is important that the boys and girls sign up at their respective home clubs in advance and that their golf professional call their names and ages into the host club by the Friday before the event.
Proper golf attire is required. This year we are asking that a parent or an adult to be the scorekeeper and assist the 13-year-olds and under with the rules and etiquette of golf.
A point system is in place for participation in these events to help determine the champion for the various age divisions, therefore it is equally important that the participant notify the host club if they cannot play, which will allow someone else an opportunity and not invoke the deduction in points required for not showing up.
This year’s events are to begin on July 9 at Wahconah Country Club in Dalton. Other dates include: July 16 at Forest Park in Adans; July 23 at the Country Club of Pittsfield; July 30 at Worthington Golf Club; Aug. 6 at Waubeeka Golf Links in Williamstown: and the Allied Junior Championship at Egremont Country Club on Aug. 13.
