Oregon Junior Golf COVID-19 Notice

As of May 6, 2020

We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 information and the health and safety of everyone is the driving force for our decisions.

We are happy to see OJG members using the YOC benefit and playing golf. However, due to increased play on weekdays, putting a strain on our participating facilities, we have developed some new Youth on Course Tee Time Guidelines and Procedures to be followed:

  • When calling to request a tee time on the day of desired play, you must announce that you are using your YOC benefit. No advance tee times prior to day of play may be made with your YOC benefit.
  • Starting May 1st and continuing through June, Monday - Sunday, tee times will be available to YOC juniors after 2:00pm only. If you wish to play earlier, you will pay the facility’s published junior rate.
