Officials at the Fort Worth Junior Golf Association have announced dates for the 2014 boys and girls city championships.
The boys will compete July 7-10 at various city and country club courses. The girls’ event will be July 14-17. Golfers from ages 8-18 are eligible to compete. There are no entry fees for either event and online registration begins May 1.
Additional information about the events are available at www.fwjga.net.
FWJGA officials also announced that the organization, which is dependent on donations, received two generous donations in the past year: an $11,500 donation from the Diamond Oaks Ladies Golf Association and a $5,000 donation from Kate Tran, a 14-year-old participant in last year’s event. Tran won a $10,000 scholarship at the RGC Wealth Management Shot for College competition on Aug. 4 but was unable to keep the scholarship under UIL eligibility rules. Tran donated half to the FWJGA and the other half to The First Tee.
