Calling All Young Golfers – 2020 Itty Bitty Open Is Accepting Registrations

By on December 19, 2019 0 1175Views

The Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) announced that it will host the ITTY BITTY OPEN on January 11, 2020 at 20 Valley-wide locations open to all youngsters ages 3-5 years old. The FREE event has three clinic times per location starting a 9, 10 and 11 am where juniors and their parents will learn the basics skills of golf taught by qualified PGA and LPGA professionals. After the clinics, the kids will then participate in fun-filled, non-competitive golf games and tournaments. Each golfer will receive a set of plastic golf clubs, balls, a bag, and a visor – participants are asked to leave their own clubs at home. An adult “caddie” must accompany each golfer.

“Itty Bitty Open is a great way for parents to introduce their children to the game of golf,” said Scott McNevin, Executive Director of the JGAA. “It’s always fun to see so many kids having such a good time. It’s very exciting to think that a three-year-old kid attending the Itty Bitty Open will likely still be playing the game for decades to come. We’re honored to help them begin that journey.”

A special contest with prizes will be held at each session for the “Best Dressed Golfer and Caddie Team.” Anything goes: classic golf fashion; contemporary golf fashion; or any unique golf duds that may come to mind. All winners will receive a congratulatory letter, a trophy, and two tickets for the R.S. Hoyt, Jr. Dream Day Activities at the 2020 Waste Management Phoenix Open presented by Ak-Chin Indian Community (kids are already allowed to attend at no charge, so the tickets are for parents or other adults).

Space is limited, sign up before January 6 deadline. For those would like to check availability after the entry deadline, please call 602.944.6168.
