Meridian Optimist Club sponsors Idaho Junior Golf Tournament

Calling all junior golfers! The Meridian Optimist Club is sponsoring the first ever Meridian, Idaho Optimist Junior Golf Tournament on June 9, 2009. The event is a pre-qualifying tournament for the Pacific Northwest District Optimist International Junior Golf Tournament. According to coordinator Bob Thompson, the Meridian Optimist Club hopes to encourage more Idaho players to participate in the tournament series. "We want them to have an opportunity to play close to home, gain a little tournament experience, and possibly win a sponsorship to the district tournament," he explained.

First place finishers in age divisions Boys 14 - 15 and 16-18 and Girls 14 -15 and 16-18 will receive an expense-paid trip to Hillsboro, Oregon for the PNW District Tournament on June . Golfers who qualify at the District level event will advance to the Optimist International Junior Golf Tournament at the PGA National Resort & Spa, July 23 - August 2, 2009.
