There's a different kind of golf tournament coming to The Valley that could be in the running for the cutest show on grass! The Junior Golf Association of Arizona is hosting the 2019 Itty Bitty Open.
It's happening on Saturday, January 12 at 20 different locations, and it's completely free for kids ages three to five years old. There will be three clinic times per location (9, 10 and 11 a.m.) where juniors and their parents learn the basics of golf taught by qualified PGA and LPGA professionals.
After the clinics, the kids will participate in what was described as "fun-filled, non-competitive" golf games and tournaments.
Each golfer will receive a set of plastic golf clubs, balls, a bag and a visor. Participants are asked to leave their own clubs at home. An adult "caddie" must accompany each golfer.
January 7 is the deadline to sign up. To RSVP, call 602-944-6168 or click here and select Itty Bitty Open to learn more.
A special contest with prices will be held at each session for the "Best Dressed Golfer and Caddie Team". Last year, we saw some people dressed up like super heroes. Get creative! All winners will receive a congratulatory letter, a trophy, and two tickets for the R.S. Hoyt Jr. Dream Day Activities at the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open, presented by Ak-Chin Indian Community. Kids are already allowed to attend at no charge, so the tickets are for parents or other adults.
