Greatest Golfer has set a pre-season record for signups in the ‘Joe’ Dickey Junior Championships, with 300 player rounds committed before the season even starts this Sunday.
The Greatest series, presented also by Youngstown Tile Retail Design Center, features 10 events from May 7 to July 20, then a skills championship, followed by a 36-hole finals July 21-22 at Avalon Lakes. Event costs range from $45-$65, and there is no seasonal membership fee. It’s Ohio and Pennsylvania’s least expensive yet most competitive summer play for high schoolers.
This is the 13th season for Juniors play, and over those years, more than 70 high schoolers have landed in college golf after their Greatest play — including most of the YSU Men’s Golf Team.
The ‘Joe’ Dickey Series tees off this Sunday, May 7, at The Lake Club — the Greatest Golfer Adults Championship Course since 2010.
Guaranteed registration for Sunday’s Lake event will close at noon Friday. Head to TheGreatestGolfer.com. Guaranteed registration for all events ends 2 days before tee time.
