Welcome to LCJGT's 2018 Season
The cold temperatures, snow, and early sunsets make it seem like golf is still months from being played in Central Pennsylvania. However, we are inching closer and closer to getting tees in the ground without a hammer than we might think.
The upcoming 2018 season will begin our second year using the new divisions. After a good first year which brought about highly competitive tournaments, we are excited to continue with the Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Futures divisions. Just like last year, players will start the year in a division based on last year’s performance or play in other tournaments, but they can play their way up into higher divisions.
There are also several changes for the 2018 season. First of all, we are very excited to add Dauphin Highlands Golf Course to our tournament schedule. Despite its proximity to many of our other courses, golfers in Lancaster may not know about this high-quality track. Next, we welcome Gary Patton as the new LCJGT Board President. Gary takes over for Patrick Chieppor who very successfully guided the tour over the past several years. Also, after 15 plus years as the face of the tour, Skip Walters will be enjoying more time at the beach this summer. Hopefully all of the lessons learned from Skip will serve me well as I take over the role of Tournament Director.
When signing up for the tour, don’t forget to register for one of the two rules clinic options. Those clinics are very important to review parent and player expectations when participating on the tour. In addition, we will be looking at some of the critical rules of golf. While still in the planning stages, we are looking at making a few changes to these sessions.
I am looking forward to June 14 and Overlook. Can’t wait to see that first ball in the air for the 2018 season.
