Tournament Overview
Tournaments can be stressful nail-biting experiences. With any competition comes the desire to win. At The First Tee-Augusta our Core Values dictate our tournament environment. From educating parents on post shot reaction and how they affect the attitude of their participants, to a player calling a penalty on an opponent to maintain the integrity of the field. Our chapter also realizes the importance of competing not only against other First Tee-Augusta participant but other players in the CSRA is vital to our participants growth. Helping parents navigate endless number of Junior tournament organizations like AJGA, SJGA, GSGA, and more. We strive to create the most self-sufficient tournament ready “FAMILIES” we can at First Tee-Augusta.

USGA Handicap

A way to compare two players of unequal skill levels. That number is a calculation of your average score over ten rounds of golf on a USGA approved course. 

Why is a golf handicap important? 
The golf handicap system is important if you are trying to improve your golf game. A golf handicap gives you the ability to play in local tournaments against golfers with better abilities. First Tee – Augusta members must have a golf handicap to apply for all First Tee student opportunities.

When should I record my scores into handicap system? 
Juniors should enter scores from all 9-hole events into the USGA GHIN Handicap system to establish a numerical measure of their
potential and indicate how well their game is improving over time. See Junior Golf Tournament Hierarchy
