New England Junior Championship
The Maine Junior Golf season culminates in the New England Junior Championship, an invitational tournament at which the top seven players from all the New England states compete in a team competition.
The Maine team is selected on a merit basis, with the Maine Junior Champion automatically making the team. The next six slots are filled on the basis of differential averages, in a minimum of six events, three of which must be MSGA Junior Golf Tour events. In order to be eligible to qualify for the New England Junior Championship, players must compete in the 15-17 age division during junior tournaments. Players competing in the other divisions will not be considered.
For the purpose of selecting the New England Junior team, competition in all MSGA, PGA and USGA events is also considered. However, players are responsible for submitting their verifiable tournament scores, along with the golf course’s slope and rating, to the MSGA Office by Tuesday, August 5 in order for these scores to count.
The MSGA assumes no responsibility for the collection of scores in events played outside of the Maine Junior Golf program, not even other MSGA events.
