CGA Announces Junior, Senior Slates
One of the great things about the Carolinas Golf Association is that the organization focuses on providing competition and awards for golfers of all ages.
The CGA offers an impressive schedule of activities for golfers from juniors to super seniors, ensuring that no one from its member clubs who wants to compete is ignored
In junior golf, the CGA boasts an impressive championship season this summer for boys and girls.
The 63rd Carolinas Junior Championship (boys) will be held at the Country Club of South Carolina in Florence July 24-26.
The 56th Carolinas Junior Girls championship will be played June 26-28 at Longleaf Country Club in Southern Pines and the 46th Twin States (girls) championship is scheduled July 24-25 at the Country Club of Lexington in Lexington, S.C.

The 45th North Carolina Junior will be contested at Carmel Country Club in Charlotte. This event for boys and girls is June 19-22. The eighth Dogwood State Junior goes to Starmount Forest Country Club in Greensboro Aug. 7-9, and the 35th South Carolina Junior Match Play will be hosted by Lake Marion Golf Club in Santee, S.C., July 17-20.

The CGA will host 16 One-Day Four-Ball Tournaments in 2012. The two-person better-ball events are open to both men and women of all abilities.
Teams may be made up of any gender combination with gross and net prizes awarded. The first of these events is set for March 5 at Duke University Golf Club in Durham.
In addition, the CGA conducts 27 one-day tournaments for people of all skill level and ages. Gross and net prizes are awarded with players receiving 100 percent course handicap.
The Carolinas Senior Four-Ball One-Day Tournament series will have 49 events on its 2012 schedule. The popular two-man, best-ball one-day tournaments open to male amateurs over the age of 55 historically have more entrants than spots available at most events. Entries are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for all one-day tournaments.
