2015 Recap

The 2015 event took place August 12, 2015 - with the opening ceremonies being held on August 11. 

Between both the Little Linksters and  Junior Tour players there were nearly 300 players competing in the event with some phenomenal golf being played and champions crowned in eleven different divisions! The most ever. It was the perfect way to end what was already a great summer.

How do we determine who receives an invitation?

At each Junior Tour and Little Linksters tournament from May to August, players will earn points based off what place they come in at each tournament.  In late July, the STPGA will outline how many players at the end of the summer will receive an invitation based off their points in the Summer Series.  Due to how large our program is, we split up our invitations based off division and metro area.  The championship field is a direct representation of our entire program based off both the amount of people in both metro area and age division.

For example, at the end of the summer (Aug 5) the STPGA will invite the Top 3 on the Austin Little Linksters Points List in the Girls 9-10 9-hole Modified Division.

Please note: Since the Bridgestone Golf Prestige Tour has its own Points List and Tour Championship, players will ONLY be invited to the Summer Championship based off the Little Linksters and Junior Tour points list.  Prestige Tour points will NOT be counted on the Junior Tour points list like pervious years.

If your goal is to make it to this Championship, make sure to play enough Little Linkster or Junior Tour tournaments.  

When looking at the Points List, make sure to organize the points list by metro area.  Our invitations are given out by August 4 based off division AND metro area.
