The Gateway PGA Junior Tour is excited to announce that barring the extension of the order from St. Louis County and St. Louis City, our Junior Tour will tentatively begin on June 3rd!
Our situation is unique in that our host facilities are located in multiple counties across the parts of Missouri, Illinois, and the Great St. Louis Area. While some these communities may be able to reopen at a faster rate, others may need to continue restrictions to keep the virus from spreading. Our biggest concern is the safety and health of your families and our junior golfers and we will continue to be adaptive as we adhere to state, county, and CDC guidelines and mandates.
Like many of you though, we are also eager to get back to junior golf! We have adapted our tournament schedule in such a way that gives us the best opportunity for summer junior golf while abiding by respective stay-at-home orders and dates.
As of May 1, we made the necessary decision to postpone the following Junior Tour events through the Spring season with plans for our Junior Tour to tentatively begin on June 3rd. We will be working with each tournament facility scheduled prior to June 3rd to find a reschedule date and if we cannot find a date that works, we will be refunding all entry fees.
The following dates have been postponed:
- May 3rd: Patrick Fiore Memorial Tournament
- May 9th: Spring Event & JDT @ Oakbrook Golf Club
- May 16th: Spring Event @ Columbia Golf Club
- May 17th: Spring Event @ Jefferson City Country Club
- May 26th-27th: 2-Day @ Gateway National Golf Links
- June 1st-2nd: Gateway PGA Junior Championship @ Spencer T. Olin Golf Course
We are in the process of revising our 2-Day schedule and will send an announcement with these updates next week. In future communication we will also introduce specific rules and restrictions to follow during our events that will ensure your safety.
We encourage Junior Tour Members to still register for summer tournaments. For the foreseeable future, 2020 Gateway PGA Junior Tour Registration will remain open in payment pending mode. This means that your credit card will not be charged until we are certain events can safely take place. We also encourage you to continue toregister for for memberships as well.
The Gateway PGA & Gateway PGA REACH Foundation staff will provide frequent updates. The safety and well-being of our juniors, your families and our staff is our highest priority. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please call if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you all!
Gateway PGA REACH Foundation Board & Staff
