The SWIS District Junior Golf Outing is set for June 19, 2023 at Brown Deer Golf course for $85 per golfer.  The event is open to boys and girls ages 10-18 years old.  Golfer will play in age division groupings by gender.  If a golfer shoots a qualifying score within their age group, they have the possibility of advancing to the international competition that will be held in July if we are granted a spot from them from Optimist International.  We will be looking for scorers to walk along with the younger age groups and marshals on the course.  The marshals are there to monitor pace of play and to make sure parents are not offering advice to their golfer.  I will send around a signup sheet when we get closer to the event.  If you know of someone that may be interested in playing, have them go to the OI website and search for International Golf qualifiers to find the link to our event to register.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Todd Paulus (cell #414-719-0009 or by email tpaulus@wi.rr.com).  Thanks for your help in promoting this event.


2023 Southern Wisconsin District Qualifier
for Optimist International Junior Golf

Junior Golfers participate in a District Qualifier like this one in order to play in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in July in Miami, Florida.  A limited number of golfers in each age division will advance to the championships provided they shoot the minimum qualifying score.

A limited number of golfers in each division will advance to the international championships provided they shoot the minimum qualifying score. If a golfer who lives outside of the District qualifies, his/her participation will not eliminate a District resident from qualifying. Optimist Districts and Clubs provide financial support for winners to attend the international championships. The amount of financial support provided and the age divisions covered varies by District. There is no guarantee that financial support will be provided to golfers who travel outside of their home District. Please check with the District Chair for details.
