Note: Some events may not include all categories of competition or every age group.
Each player is required to complete an open book rules test prior to playing his or her first event. We encourage the parents to work with the player on the exam, in order to familiarize themselves with the rules of golf.
Registration and release forms
A registration and medical/liability release form will be online. These forms will become available on the website beginning April 1 under the "Registration" ab.
The parent (or representative) is expected to volunteer at least once each series in which the member participates. We use about 6 volunteers each event. If two players from a family are playing in COJGA events, then we need assistance at two events each series.
If you need financial assistance, call Neil Pedersen 541-480-6288 and inquire into the COJGA scholarship program.
