2018 Golf Season Underway

2018 Golf SeasonThe 2018 Golf Season is underway. Intent to participate forms were due on June 13. Only those who turned in an intent to participate form will receive tournament registration information. Athletes competing for the first time in SOKY golf are required to participate their first year at the skills level (level 1). The skills competition allows athletes to train and compete in basic golf skills. The purpose of the skills competition is to measure the athlete’s ability and it is necessary prior to advancing to level 2 (unified play) and level 3 (individual play). The Level 1 Individual Skills competition is composed of 6 different “skills”: short putt, long putt, chip shot, pitch shot, iron shot and wood shot. (All events are listed in the manual).

We have three regional tournaments; Northern KY – July 22, Louisville- July 28 and Western KY- August 4. Athletes must compete at one regional tournament to qualify for the State Tournament on August 26.

The registration fee is due on or before the first night of the clinic. All athletes participating in the clinics should also have a valid athlete medical form on file with us.
