2022 Southern Wisconsin District Qualifier
for Optimist International Junior Golf

The SWIS District Junior Golf Outing was held on June 11, 2022 at Brown Deer Golf Course. We only had 4 participants for the event but we still decided to host it. We have one golfer shoot a qualifying score, however that golfer opted to not go to FL to participate on the International Golf Outing. Tom Carls and I will re-evaluate the event for next year to see if the event will be held or not.


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.
