Beloit Club to host talented junior golfers

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Club will play host to a bevy of talented young players from the Midwest this weekend.

The Club has been selected as one of several regionals sites throughout the country for the PGA Jr. League competition, with the winner of the regional meet advancing to Nationals.

The regional meet features four teams: One from Nebraska, one from Iowa, one from Minnesota and an entry from Wisconsin that features golfers from Waukesha and Oregon.

The two-day event begins Saturday morning and will carry through Sunday afternoon.

"This PGA Jr. League has really gained in popularity over the past couple of years," Beloit Club golf pro Milt Kodl said. "We have had our teams advance to this regional level the last two years, but this year we fell short. I think it's a great opportunity for young golfers to get involved with. It's nice because it shows them the team aspect of things, too and allows them to compete that way."

The competitors wear numbered jerseys and compete in a scramble format. The teams were formed by selecting 10 "all-stars" from each region. The first step of the competition is the sectional meet, of which there are 48. Beloit is host to one of 12 regional meets around the country, while the teams at the Club will compete for a valued spot at the National meet, to be held in California this fall.

"It's a two-player scramble, with the option to rotate players in and out every three holes," Kodl said. "Ages range from seven to 15, and it's a good mix of really good players and kids who are just starting out. It's a great event that is really gaining in popularity. The course is in great shape for the kids, and we'll have a lot of families coming in starting Friday for practice rounds. It should be a great weekend out here."
