Updates From The Iowa PGA On Junior & Professionals Events Through May 10

Riverside, Iowa – 
All Iowa PGA Junior and Professional events will be postponed until May 10, 2020.

The Iowa PGA Section staff, board of directors and PGA Professionals continue to wish you well during these difficult times and hope you are all doing okay and staying safe. 

With the continued closure recommendations and requirements from the CDC, the Iowa Governor and Illinois Governor, the Iowa PGA has chosen to postpone all Junior Tour and Pee Wee Tour events through May 10.  This will include the Spring Junior & Pee Wee Series #1 hosted by Terrace Hills GC in Altoona on April 18, the Spring Junior & Pee Wee Open hosted at Jester Park GC, The Legacy GC and Copper Creek GC on April 25-26 and the Spring Series Junior and Pee Wee Series #2 hosted by Westwood GC in Newton on May 9. 

We will be working with the PGA host professionals on these events next week to see the possibility of new dates and will continue to keep in touch.  If a new date is not secured and/or the new date does not work for you, you will receive a full refund. 

You may have also heard last week that all 2020 local, sub and regional qualifiers for the 2021 Drive, Chip & Putt Championship have been canceled.  The regional qualifiers who were supposed to compete this Sunday at Augusta National GC will compete now on April 4, 2021.  Great news for Mateo Rascon as he is an Iowa PGA Junior 2020 qualifier in the boys 14-15.

PGA Jr League continues to be postponed until May 10 as well.  Iowa PGA Professionals who are participating continue to work on plans to resume as soon as it is safe.  Feel free to reach out to your PGA Professional and/or check out the website at www.IowaPGAJuniorGolf.com for more details on this program.  CLICK HERE for direct link. 

Please feel free to call or email us with any questions.  The Iowa PGA Section staff are all working from home through at least April 13, but are available anytime to answer questions by phone or email.  Stay safe, be well and take care.  Thinking of you all and hope to see you soon out at one of our favorite places, the golf course. 

Sincerely,
