Tee Off in Summer 2024 with the Exciting 616 Junior Golf Tour

Something Brand New in Junior Golf!

There’s something totally fresh and fun for kids, tweens and teens this summer in West Michigan: The 616 Junior Golf Tour.

Brought to you by Maple Hill Golf in Grandville, this tour aims to bring the game of golf to junior players in a way that’s never been done before in greater Grand Rapids.

What Makes This Tour So Special?

Rather than a typical junior golf tournament series, this tour is designed to make golf more approachable and fun for kids at every level.

They’re doing that by making each of the eight events in the tour a 2-person scramble.

With this setup, players tee off and compete as pairs in a friendly, yet competitive atmosphere that’s focused on teamwork.

Everyone plays from the tees that suit their age and skill level, too.

Who Can Play on the Tour?

Pretty much any kid or teen that wants to can play at these junior golf events. It’s a great option for kids ages 8 to 18.

Serious players and just-for-fun players should consider joining in.

Teams can sign up to play in one or all of the 2-person scramble tournaments. And for those who don’t have a partner, no worries; the Tour Director will pair singles up so that everyone gets to play.

Here’s what to expect:

Junior Divisions:

  • Ages 8 – 12 (Boys & Girls): Perfect for the younger crowd, ready to take on 9 holes.
  • Ages 13 – 18 (Boys & Girls): For the older juniors, stepping up to the challenge of 18 holes.
